The Angola Cables data center will cater for the growing demand in content data transmission in the Southern hemisphere.
The completed facility is now open for business and offers scalability, continuous connectivity, host and cloud services for local and external entities.
The facility is a primary interconnection point for the region, which will host Angola Cables’ two newest intercontinental submarine cables, SACS (South Atlantic Cable System) and Monet.
“The Angonap Fortaleza facility has far reaching advantages and benefits for CDN’s, IXP’s, OTT’s as well as national and international telecom operators, and content providers seeking to extend and expand their global reach and product offerings from Brazil to the world,” said António Nunes, CEO of Angola Cables.
The company added that the structure of the data center will accommodate other submarine international cables systems, backhaul providers, content providers and CDNs, including research and academic internet exchange points in Latin America.
This interconnection point will also permit African entities to develop businesses in different regions of Brazil, Latin America and the USA.
According to Angola Cables, the new data center has been specifically designed to receive more submarine cables landing in Fortaleza, and will provide multiple connection services for any businesses that require high capacity data services to run their modern, internet and technology driven enterprises.
“From an Angola Cables viewpoint, our investment in the Angonap Fortaleza is important in advancing and expanding our business horizons,” added Nunes.
“Other cable systems and customers will have the option to host their data or content via Cloud services or in the data center directly – with the opportunity to promote their businesses to world markets via our ultra-low latency SACS connection.
