Optimize your interconnection

Spotlight on Africa

Since its creation, the strategy of France-IX is to consolidate French-speaking traffic but also to attract international traffic in France. This has been done accordingly with the geographical position of our exchange point which is partly based in Marseille, the landing point of many submarine cables connecting to Africa (Seacom, SeaMeWe-3, SeaMeWe-4, Atlas Offshore, Med cable), to Middle-East (Hawk, IMEWE) and Asia (SeaMeWe-4).

The summer 2012 has been strongly influenced by Africa. France-IX team visited the African Peering Interconnection Forum - AfPIF – late August and met many potential members among the 250 entities present at the event. Another event took place mid-September which is the Capacity Africa, bringing together African and submarine cable operators. During these two events, France-IX highlighted the POP in Marseille and initiated partnerships that should be announcements over the next few months.

Telma selects France-IX to develop its international routes


The first operator in Madagascar, Telecom Malagasy also known as Telma has joined the community of peers on France-IX through one 1Gbps port.

M. Patrick Pisal-Hamida, Managing Director at Telma, explains his interest in connecting to France-IX: "Telma aims to constantly improve the quality of service on its IP networks which lead us to increase the international routes and get connected to France-IX".

Since 2005, Telma deployed 3,600 km of optical fiber for its national backbone. Telma is one of the five investors in the submarine cable EASSY, installed in Mars 2010, linking the island to the world.
