NAPAfrica’s Internet Exchanges in Johannesburg, Cape Town, and Durban have shown exceptional growth over the last few years.

Teraco Data Environments launched NAPAfrica – a neutral, layer 2 Internet exchange (IX) point – in its Cape Town, Johannesburg, and Durban data centres in March 2012.

Its free peering enjoyed great support, and in February 2014 the NAPAfrica Johannesburg exchange showed peak traffic of around 5Gbps.

In February 2015, NAPAfrica announced it had reached a throughput of 20Gbps – with more than 180 members across its locations in Cape Town, Durban, and Johannesburg.

The amount of traffic across NAPAfrica’s switches has now grown to over 70Gbps – a year-on-year growth of 250%.

The most traffic is shared at NAPAfrica’s Johannesburg Internet Exchange, with peak traffic at around 60Gbps.

NAPAfrica’s Cape Town Internet Exchange peaks at around 14Gbps, while its Durban Internet Exchange has peak traffic of around 2.5Gbps.

The graphs below show the traffic at NAPAfrica’s Internet Exchanges across South Africa.
