June 10, 2014

SEACOM has partnered with CDNetworks for deployment of CDNetworks content clusters and caching nodes on its pan-African IP network footprint in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania.

Main objective of this association is speeding and optimising HTTP content, rich media, downloadable files, video, music, software updates and other web content.

According to SEACOM, operators and internet service providers (ISPs) connected to its IP network had requested for such optimisation, while other end-users in Africa are in for lower latency, faster speeds and more reliable service while accessing popular web services and content from across the world.

SEACOM Kenya country manager Joseph Muriithi stated the nodes will offer faster download speeds, will boost user experience and will offer a more level playing field in the innovation space for East African internet users. He added, This brings us one step closer to making internet a common commodity in the East African region.

Now, the caching technology of the firm installed in SEACOM s network African ISPs can deliver global website content much faster to end-users, offering a better online experience, said, Jeff Kim, CDNetworks chief operating officer for (COO) the United States (US) and Europe, Middle East and Africa.
