LAGOS, (CAJ News) – MAIN One, the Nigerian-based technology company, has announced a new interconnection service for carriers, enterprises and internet service providers.
The announcement of Open-Connect follows the partnership of MainOne’s data centre company, MDXi, and the Nigerian Internet Exchange (IXPN) to improve national transit traffic in the West African country.
The product is set to enable the creation of an environment that allows colocated customers connect to multiple networks, cloud and content providers while significantly reducing the cost of backhaul links to various providers and it offers competitive pricing in an open access, carrier neutral environment.
“Traffic growth is a useful indicator of the health of the entire Internet ecosystem, and helps to measure the development of the digital economy,” said Funke Opeke, Chief Executive Officer of MainOne.
She said the new interconnection service for customers within Main One’s data centre would significantly improve traffic growth and localization in Nigeria, with reduced latency, improved speed and better quality of services to end users.
“This solution will enable more operators and carriers take advantage of the connections of the IXPN within MainOne’s connected Data Center and enhance Internet traffic originating and terminating on any network in Nigeria to remain in-country.”
