AfPIF 2019

‹ Back
AfPIF celebrated its 10-year anniversary in Mauritius.

The 10th African Peering and Interconnection Forum (AfPIF) was held over a 3-day period from 20-22 August 2019 in Balaclava, Mauritius.

First held in 2010, the event was created to address the realization that most of Africa’s Internet traffic is sourced or exchanged outside the continent.

As the curtains fell on the tenth edition of AfPIF, it was clear that the future is looking bright, with 367 participants, representing 59 countries: 202 from Africa, 36 from Europe, 16 from America, and 13 from Asia.

It’s been a record-breaking year: 97 women attended AfPIF-10, the highest ever, showing the fruits of diversity efforts from organizers and sponsors.
