Based on paris-traceroutes data collected from RIPE Atlas probes (from Nov. 2013 to Apr. 2014; June 2014 to Aug. 2014, and from Nov. 2014 to Feb. 2015), we tracked the evolution of intra-African traffic localization. We indeed looked for IXPs traversed by the AS paths, using information collected from public datasets (PeeringDB, PCHdata, IXP websites, etc.). We then evaluated the impacts of peering on the minimum RTT among ASes and compare the Quality of Service experienced by random end-users in Africa, Europe, and North America for communications between same countries. After that, we presented a web platform displaying statistics such as the IP paths between any probe source and destination, the minimum RTT heat-map between any probes pair, the discovered IXPs in the dataset, etc. Such an application would allow stakeholders and engineers to have a view of the impact of their routing policies on the QoS experienced by end-users. We aim to get feedbacks from the AFPIF community before its release.
