BKNIX Peering Forum

BKNIX Peering Forum will take place 23-24 May in Bangkok, Thailand and online as a hybrid event. It will provide great opportunities for those who make peering and interconnection decisions for their network.

Naveed Haq, our Regional Infrastructure and Connectivity Director, will be speaking about the Measuring Internet Resilience in Africa (MIRA) project at the Opening Plenary.

What’s the MIRA Project?

The MIRA project is a joint initiative between African Network Information Centre (AFRINIC) and the Internet Society. The project uses Internet measurements gathered by measurement devices, called MIRA pods, located within African countries in order to:

  • Determine levels of Internet resilience in African countries over time by recording specific metrics, including throughput and latency (the time it takes to reach various Internet destinations).
  • Increase the number of Internet measurement vantage points in Africa, i.e., the places from which measurements are taken.
  • Make the data available to everyone, everywhere on the Internet Society Pulse platform.
