#IPeerinAfrica 4: IXP Traffic Behavior During the Pandemic in Africa | Comportement du trafic IXP pendant la pandémie en Afrique

livestreamOn Tuesday November 3 2020, at 13:00-15.00 UTC, the African IXP Association, in partnership with the Internet Society, presents the fourth webinar in the Virtual Peering Series – Africa, with the theme ‘IXP Traffic Behavior During the Pandemic in Africa‘.

This session aims to understand the behavior of traffic at African IXPs during the COVID-19 pandemic. Was there significant traffic increase due to the lockdown? Were there countries where there was a decrease in traffic mainly because people traditionally accessed more Internet from their offices? How critical are IXPs in these situations? It would also be relevant to understand the inter-regional traffic pattern during the pandemic.

livestreamLe mardi 4 novembre 2020, de 13h00 à 15h00 UTC, l’Association africaine des IXP, en partenariat avec l’Internet Society, présente le quatrième webinaire de la série Virtual Peering – Afrique, sur le thème « Comportement du trafic IXP pendant la pandémie en Afrique ».

Cette session vise à comprendre le comportement du trafic sur les IXP africains pendant la pandémie COVID-19. Y a-t-il eu une augmentation significative du trafic en raison du verrouillage? Y a-t-il eu des pays où le trafic a diminué principalement parce que les gens accédaient traditionnellement à plus d’Internet depuis leurs bureaux? Dans quelle mesure les IXP sont-ils critiques dans ces situations? Il serait également utile de comprendre la configuration du trafic interrégional pendant la pandémie.
