The Internet Service Providers’ Association (ISPA) recently switched on its Durban Internet Exchange (DINX), complementing the Johannesburg Internet Exchange (JINX) and the Cape Town Internet Exchange (CINX).
Managed by the Internet Service Providers’ Association (ISPA) of South Africa, the three Internet Exchanges (INXs) together enable South African Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to interconnect their networks and exchange local Internet traffic.
ISPA highlights that peering at JINX, CINX and now DINX saves costs and provides for greater reliability through enhanced redundancy.
The success of ISPA’s Internet Exchanges is clearly visible through the continued growth at JINX and CINX.
The latest traffic statistics show that ISPA members share over 5Gbps of traffic at JINX and over 2Gbps at CINX. This is up from around 2.5Gbps and 1.2Gbps respectively twelve months ago – a yearly growth of 100%.
The following graphs show the daily traffic at ISPA’s Johannesburg and Cape Town Internet Exchanges.
