(Ecofin Agency) - Angola's fiber optics Internet connectivity provider, Angola Cables, announces a partnership with Germany-based Deutscher Commercial Internet Exchange (DE-CIX), the largest Internet exchange point (IXP) worldwide in terms of peak traffic. The collaboration aims to offer high-end interconnection services to a variety of neutral IXPs for operators and data centers in Latin America.
According to Theresa Bobis, DE-CIX Regional Director for Southern Europe, “Angola Cables, as a DE-CIX reseller, will now be able to offer Internet Service Providers (ISPs) a reliable, low-latency network and high-quality access to high-end network interconnections and Internet exchanges in Europe, the Middle East, North America and India.”
Via this South-South Atlantic connection, ISPs will be able to connect to more than 100 countries and more than 1,700 operators worldwide, thanks to interconnections already established between São Paulo, Fortaleza and Lisbon, and others planned to interconnect the same Brazilian cities to the IXP DE-CIX in New York, Madrid, and Frankfurt.
António Nunes (pictured), Chairman and CEO of Angola Cables, explained that through these advanced telecommunications networks, “we want to create digital bridges between continents and countries to help companies and economies develop in the southern hemisphere.” The partnership between Angola Cables and DE-CIX strengthens the volume of investments already made by the Angolan company in Latin America.
