    The event aimed to present the benefits of an exchange point for each network profile, to present the structure of an exchange point of being created and to agree on a date for general meeting.


    Financial support and expertise provided by France-IX


    In the past, members of France-IX’s team animated ISOC training in Africa to see the creation of local exchange points.
