Jean Baptiste Millogo

Director, Internet Technology and Development


I focus on the Sustainable Peering Infrastructure, Community Networks and Technical community development, especially in the African region.

Prior to this position at the Internet Society, I served as a network architect at Orange Burkina Faso and stood as an Orange Expert, Future Network on behalf of Orange Group. In this professional journey, I have significantly contributed to the company's core and IP backbone network transformation and played a key role in all IP/MPLS projects.

I have worked for a decade as a regional information technology and network manager for Central Africa and the Great Lakes region at Agence Universitaire de la Francophonie (AUF). I have also spent time building digital campuses and ICT infrastructures for African Universities based on Free and Open Source Software.

In the domain of the Internet community, I'm one of the founding members of the Internet Society Burkina Faso Chapter and chaired its board from 2015 to 2020. To support the peering and interconnection community in Burkina Faso, I have been the executive director at the Burkina Faso Internet Exchange Point (BFIX) since February 2018 and served as an Africa Peering and Interconnection Program committee member.

I hold an MSc in computer science with a major in network design and security from the University of Reims in France.

When not busy with network challenges, I enjoy talking about all kinds of relaxation approaches and humor.

I'm based in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.
