Research (Topics, Perspective and Areas)

AFRINIC Research and Innovation Lab supports AFRINIC's role as a Network Information Centre (NIC) by providing network operators, governments, regulators and other stakeholders the information and evidence needed to strengthen the Internet ecosystem at regional, continental and international levels. AFRINIC Labs conducts public-interest research on key areas such as Internet quality and performance, security, cloud computing and Internet access and is actively engaging with Internet standard bodies (for e.g. IETF, W3C, etc) to keep abreast of the latest technological changes and innovation. It is actively collaborating with regional and international research and academic institutions to conduct both scientific and policy-oriented research on the evolution of the African Internet ecosystem. AFRINIC Labs will contribute to gathering up-to-date Internet-related datasets through measurements and other sources and will establish a repository of information to further promote research, innovation as well as informed policy formulation.
