Nairobi, Nov 21, 2020 (Issuewire.com) - 6x7 Networks, the world's only fully encrypted Global Telecommunications Carrier, announced today that they have received exclusive type approval from the Communications Authority of Kenya ("The Authority"). The result of a yearlong test and demonstration phase, The Authority has granted 6x7 permission and approval to import and operate internet core routers capable of over 8tbps. (8 Terrabits per second)


This new PoP furthers 6x7's goal of providing businesses and networks in the global sphere with additional connectivity options, enabling greater bandwidth and reduced latency through connections as fast as 800GE (800 gigabit Ethernet).  Additionally, customers in Kenya will experience improved fault tolerance, load balancing, and congestion management infrastructure capabilities for the delivery of both IPv4 and IPv6 access services, as well as fully encrypted layer2 transport to Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud. They will also have the opportunity to exchange traffic with 6x7's rich global network.


"Kenya, like much of the world, is currently subject to exorbitant rates for global internet transport.  6x7 will bring down the cost of wholesale internet into the country, benefiting everyone, and improving economies globally" explains 6x7 Networks CEO Lady Benjamin Cannon.  "Nairobi is incredible, it is one of the top 10 cities in the world by 2030 per the U.N."  she says "Kenya is a land of a billion lights."


6x7's encryption technology is unique, and patent-pending "Since our encryption is done entirely in the hardware, it happens at wire-rate, the same rate of the interface." Ms. Cannon continues "So you don't pay a performance penalty and your data is completely secure in transit."


"We offer connectivity from here to 6 continents, and over 190 Countries" Ms. Cannon says.

Judge: No slander in Alec Baldwin's comments on parking spat

Nov 27, 2020

NEW YORK — Alec Baldwin didn't slander a man in interviews about a parking dispute that turned physical, a judge has ruled as dueling lawsuits between the actor and the other driver continue. Baldwin's remarks — including claims that Wojciech Cieszkowski's driving was “really fast,” “really aggressive” and made the actor think his wife and son were about to be run over — were "hyperbole" and "rhetorical illustrations," Manhattan judge David B. Cohen wrote Thursday. “They are words of frustration with someone's driving,” not accusations that amount to slander, Cohen wrote. He tossed out Cieszkowski's slander claim, but his assault...

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Nov 27, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Nov 27, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

ABC says interview with Epstein accuser wasn't ready to air

Nov 27, 2020

NEW YORK — ABC News faced questions Tuesday about its reluctance to air a sensitive story of alleged sexual misconduct after a leaked video emerged of reporter Amy Robach complaining about how her bosses handled an interview with a Jeffrey Epstein accuser. The conservative web site Project Veritas released video of Robach venting that "every day I get more and more pissed" that her 2015 interview with Virginia Giuffre never made the air. Robach made her remarks late in August while sitting in a Times Square studio with a microphone but not on the air. ABC said Tuesday that the...
