SEACOM will have the opportunity to make connectivity to the AMS-IX platform more readily available for African Internet companies.

The company was the first to construct a broadband submarine cable system along the Eastern and Southern African coastlines, linking up to Europe, India and Asia and has since then expanded its network of terrestrial and submarine infrastructure with connectivity to and from Europe.

“We are very pleased about our partnership with AMS-IX," said Mark Simpson, chief executive officer of SEACOM.

"AMS-IX will improve efficiencies through our infrastructure and will open up a large international Internet community to directly interconnect with our customers.”

Job Witteman, CEO of AMS-IX, said, “We want to keep AMS-IX relevant for our members and customers. SEACOM has the services and connectivity to bring new unique networks from the African continent to Amsterdam, making it an important partner for AMS-IX.”

AMS-IX is also working towards establishing an Internet exchange presence in eastern Africa to keep regional Internet traffic in the area local.
