Internet News - In Brief


- The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) last week signed a new agreement with the United States Department of Commerce (DOC) that is a dramatic step forward for full management of the Internet's system of centrally coordinated identifiers through the multi-stakeholder model of consultation that ICANN represents.

- Internet Technologies Namibia (ITN) is proud to announce that its entire backbone network, totalling 11 Points of Presence (POPs) (including a POP in South Africa) is now fully MPLS enabled. After several months of intensive testing, the network has withstood an onslaught of data packets with different labels to test latency on the network. ITN now have a comprehensive list of expected label-switched routing times dependant on customer requirements. Soon ITN should have 13 MPLS enabled POPs throughout Namibia.
