Angola Cables, S.A. a rising African IP carrier’s carrier, has announced that the company is entering into a reseller relationship with DE-CIX, the world’s leading Internet Exchange (IX) operator, to offer connectivity as well as remote peering solutions to its customers, reaching out to the main DE-CIX hubs in North America and Europe.

Angola Cables S.A. – who serves main markets in Southern African Development Community (SADC), soon Brazil through its new South Atlantic Cable System (SACS) – enables and connects African business hubs as well as South American metropolitan areas with European and North American key markets by offering a diversity of routes and international wholesale carrier services. This will empower African and South American networks locally to keep their transit costs down and keep traffic within their regions.

“We are proud to become the first Angolan reseller of DE-CIX premium interconnection services, targeting Africa and South America. The recent implementation of DE-CIX reseller services highlights our commitment to helping our customers expand into new markets, lessening the digital divide, and improving the Internet experience for end-users in main markets of Africa and South America”, comments Antonio Nunes, CEO of Angola Cables. The agreement with DE-CIX implies that the African and South American networks will have an alternative route to connect to Europe and North America.

“Ever since 2013, we at DE-CIX have had a very strong and trustful partnership with Angola Cables. By adding them to our reseller portfolio, we are taking our cooperation to the next level. DE-CIX is known for building peering bridges from Europe to Africa and vice versa. With peering and cloud enablement from DE-CIX, customers can connect to 1300+ international and national networks, experience the fastest interconnection possible, and also reduce latency and IP transit costs,” says Ivo Ivanov, CEO of DE-CIX International.

The DE-CIX reseller program allows third parties like Angola Cables to resell peering ports in any area where they have an infrastructure. Remote peering enables network expansion by connecting customers to an IX remotely, eliminating the need for extra infrastructure, dealing with contractual and legal issues and different technical teams. Angola Cables will connect to the DE-CIX locations in New York, Frankfurt, Madrid and Marseille.
