Angola Cables steps up digital inclusion in Africa

A multinational telecommunications company, Angola Cables, has advanced plans to step-up digital inclusion and empowerment of Africa by the use of subsea internet cable connecting Africa to the Americas, reports ITRealms.

This is coming as the company is building a new data centre in Fortaleza-Brazilian, ITRealms reports would provide high speed internet at some of the lowest latency speeds between the two continents.

ITRealms gathered that Angola Cables was launched in 2009 with the mission of becoming the leading driver of digital enablement in Africa.

The Fortaleza centre, ITRealms gathered, represents another important step in developing international routes for digital traffic between the Americas and Africa.

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Anglo Cables, António Nunes, said there are two key routes running from the data centre.

The SACS system, Nunes said, would connect the Fortaleza centre to Luanda and is expected to be completed by mid-2018.

“The Monet Cable will connect Miami with both Fortaleza and Sao Paulo Brazil and is due to be completed by the end of 2017. However, the data centre aims to accommodate more cables from the cable dense region of Fortaleza,” Nunes said, stressing that the systems would enhance Africa’s global communications networks, provide a ‘meet me’ point with high connectivity and access to larger markets.

“They will also deliver the lowest latency routing between Africa and South America,” Nunes said, emphasizing that by partnering with Brazil to establish this data centre, has been a productive journey so far.

“We were delighted to be a part of the ceremony to mark the start of the building of the centre. This is a Brazilian tradition we were honoured to share in.” Clients who have already signed in Brazil include Prefeitura de Fortaleza, Claranet and AmLight.
