The partnership between the telecommunications multinational and Flexential should offer customers of the Angolan company, whose submarine cable will be housed in the 'data center' of the main North American owner, "low latency connectivity".
"High capacity and cloud solutions in the 40 highly redundant 'data centers', seven 'cloud nodes' and management of more than 13 thousand 'cross connects'" that Flexential's network offers to the United States of America (USA) are also among the benefits of the partnership.
According to the executive president of Angola Cables, Ângelo Gama, quoted by an information technology portal, the partnership will allow, "without cost, of local operation, companies from Africa and Brazil to connect to more than 40 'data centers' spread across the US".
“Then, from their 'sites' in Africa, they can share content more quickly and easily with markets and companies in the US,” he said.
He also highlighted that high-capacity connectivity "is the most appropriate in terms of cost and efficiency to serve the multiple industries that link Africa to the US", namely in the oil sector, 'e-commerce', research and others.
Tim Parker, vice president of network strategy at Flexential, underlined that the agreement will allow the North American company to "extend its managed services, information technology solutions and 'data centers' to customers and companies on the African continent" .
