CMC Networks (CMC), a leading global telecommunications service provider, is pleased to announce their plans to join LINX Nairobi, the new interconnection hub for East Africa operated by the London Internet Exchange.  

CMC are a global Tier 1 service provider enabling and accelerating digital transformation in the world’s most challenging markets with their connectivity and cloud managed services. An existing member network and reseller partner of the London Internet Exchange (LINX), CMC confirmed the strategic decision to support the IX’s first African footprint during the ITW Africa event taking place in Nairobi this week.  

 CEO Marisa Trisolino is an advocate for partnerships and community in the tech sector; 

“We support regional peering and are passionate about innovation and connectivity in Africa. We are proud to be a member of LINX and peering at their London network, so are more than happy to be one of the primary peers at LINX Nairobi and work with LINX further to support the digital growth in East Africa.” 

The LINX Nairobi Internet Exchange Point (IXP) will be a fully redundant, interconnected platform where networks can meet and exchange their online traffic, lowering latency and often cost of other network transfer methods. Available soon for networks to access from the new IXAfrica Data Centre and Africa Data Centres NBO1 facility.

Nurani Nimpuno, Head of Global Engagement for LINX says; 

“We can’t wait to start building the LINX Nairobi peering community here in Kenya. We hope to start getting networks connected in the coming weeks. Our vision for LINX Nairobi is to complement and help enhance the existing digital scene and with our technical expertise, support the predicted growth in the region.”  

Marisa of CMC continues; 

“We are excited about the prospect of joining LINX Nairobi, a move that aligns perfectly with our mission to provide superior connectivity solutions in Africa.
