Internet is expanding fast in many countries in Africa and it is important to understand how the deployment of physical and logical infrastructures are impacting network performance in the African region. AFRINIC works collaboratively with different partners organisations for e.g. RIPE NCC on the RIPE Atlas project and Research ICT Africa on broadband measurement studies. We shall present some work we are planning to do this year.

Bio: Amreesh’s current research interests are in network performance measurements, localized cloudlets and fog computing. He is currently looking into how a localized Internet can help bring down the cost of connectivity to rural areas in South Africa. He works as the Research and Innovation Manager at AFRINIC and he is currently reading for a PhD in Computer Science at the University of Cape Town. He is currently visiting the Networking for Development lab with whom he collaborates on several projects e.g. EPSRC GCRF African Internet Measurement Observatory, Localised hybrid cloudlet deployments in Cape Town etc to name a few.
