Based on the study presented by LACNIC in early 2021 titled “Connectivity in the LAC Region: 2020,” this project will conduct an in-depth study of connectivity in Panama, its latency, and peering agreements between Panamanian providers and autonomous BGP systems, including information on each of the country’s ten provinces.
The study will allow obtaining real-time information on Internet latency and traffic routes across Panama, even in case of events such as fiber line cuts, IP outages, mass regional electricity incidents, submarine fiber cable cuts, and others. This will have a direct impact on the operational and commercial relationships between the different Panamanian ISPs and operators, creating synergies between them and making it possible to raise the need to optimize the country’s internal interconnections and international outbound connections to ensure the proper functioning of low-latency sensitive applications such as Smart Cities, IoT, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, and Cloud Computing throughout the national territory, and creating the opportunity to extend this synergy to neighboring countries.
