Internet content delivery system boost for Tanzania.

Pan-African service provider SEACOM has partnered with CDNetworks to deploy content clusters and caching nodes in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania, giving browsers faster access to online content.

The company says the deployment mean faster speeds to access HTTP content, rich media, downloadable files, video, music, software updates and other web content requested by operators and internet service providers (ISPs) connected to SEACOM's IP network.

“Many of our global customers, such as retail and gaming companies, are looking to reach the growing online population in Africa," Jeff Kim, chief operating officer for CDNetworks said in a statement.

"With CDNetworks caching technology deployed in SEACOM's network, African ISPs can now deliver global website content much faster to end-users, providing a better online experience."

Mark Tinka, SEACOM head of engineering, said in a statement that offering quality content to customers is one of the bases of such partnerships.

“We will continue to develop new partnerships and expand our network and IP Transit offerings to help our operator and service provider customers to differentiate themselves in today's competitive and highly-evolving African marketplace," Tinka added.
