I participated as a speaker at the Africa Peering and Interconnection Forum (AfPIF) 2013 held on 3 – 5 September 2013 in Casablanca, Morocco.
The AfPIF addresses the key interconnection, peering, and traffic exchange opportunities and challenges on the continent. It is a three-day event that starts with a one-day training program followed by a two-day forum that aims to address the key interconnection opportunities and challenges that exist in the region.
AfPIF aims to foster national and cross-border interconnection opportunities by providing a forum where key players from infrastructure and service providers, IXPs, regulators, and policymakers can engage in a relaxed but business-like environment, sharing their experiences and learning from experts in the field.
My presentation focused on “Research, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship to develop local content”. The panel “Regional Content Factor” was moderated by ISOC Africa Director Dawit Bekele
