Keynote Panel: No data centre is an island – is existing interconnect infrastructure enough?

10 Sep 2024
Radisson Blu Conference Stage
Datacloud Africa

Various terrestrial fibre projects are providing direct and dependable connections to and between data centres, enabling low-latency use cases, and in turn ensuring intra-continent data exchange and storage. Coupled with the carrier-neutral model, a thriving ecosystem of local and international data centres and carriers interconnecting and exchanging traffic is growing, but is it growing quickly enough? This session will explore:

  • What collaborative efforts between data centre operators and owners of fibre are underway to connect the next billion?
  • What level of investment is required, and where is it lacking?
  • Is there a need for an open marketplace for connectivity and data centre services?
