Central Africa Peering Forum 2023

Towards a Sustainable and Dynamic Peering and Interconnection Ecosystem in Central Africa

The fourth edition of the Central Africa Peering Forum (CAPF) 2023 was held in Brazzaville, Congo, from 26-27 Apr 2023, alongside OSIANE.

Since its inception in 2020, CAPF has been attracting various players of the peering and interconnection ecosystem from the Central Africa subregion and beyond. The unique platform of this event acts as an enabler for the local players to network and exchange ideas and best practices, as well as for key players in the telecommunication and Internet sectors. These include, but are not limited to mobile operators, ISPs, IXPs, regulatory authorities, government agencies, content creators, developers and distributors, etc.

This event was supported by the Internet Society and OSIANE.
