F- root server finally hosted in Tanzania  [image:

The 50th annivesary of Tanzania’s independence was celebrated in style by
tzNIC staff as it coincided with the commissioning of the F-root Server at
Tanzania Network Information Centre (tzNIC) offices. The long awaited
project commenced on 5th December 2011 and was successfully carried out by
Internet Systems Consortium’s (ISC) Senior Operations Architect Mr. Peter
Losher in collaboration with tzNIC technical staff. The availability of the
F-root server in Tanzania will facilitate the full localization of .tz
Internet traffic as well as provide resilience, robustness and
responsiveness of the Domain Name System (DNS).

This milestone comes after tzNIC had achieved the full management
(redelegation) of the .tz ccTLD and decentralization of .tz registry
services (through the 3R model) to about  20 accredited registrars. Just
after commissioning of the F-root server the latency improved to less than
10 msec from 200 msec before the installation.
