Africell opens high-tech data center in Luanda

Africell takes another important step towards the launch of its services in Angola, with the inauguration of a data center in the capital. The installation, the result of a “very significant” financial investment, will be the cornerstone of Africell's network in Angola, providing a platform for a digital ecosystem for mobile network users.

"The opening of the data center is a significant milestone," says Christopher Lundh, CEO of Africell Angola. "We want to lead the digital transformation. Africell is investing in technology that will provide Angola with faster, more affordable and more reliable digital connectivity than before. Africell's new data center has unique technological features, having been designed in collaboration with partners in world-renowned technology and built to the highest standards of efficiency, performance and resilience. We are proud to present it today because it gives life to our digital vision for Angola and sets the tone for the future of our network", says the responsible, in communicated that VerAngola had access.

Africell's data center is completely cloud-based and uses state-of-the-art technology to achieve exceptional levels of resilience, reliability and interoperability, explains the operator. International technology brands equip the infrastructure including HP, Nokia, Dell and Oracle, as well as local partners such as CPC Africa, Jembas and Prosecurity who were involved in the design, construction and implementation of the project. The facility is strategically located at Africell Angola's headquarters in Luanda, in the Kings Tower building.

In addition to supporting Africell Angola's mobile network, the data center will benefit Angolan entrepreneurs and innovators by providing "an open environment in which they can host, integrate and run their applications at a low cost", thus removing one of the main obstacles to a successful venture: limited access to key digital resources. Africell's cloud networking capabilities will also provide fast global connectivity with which Angolan companies can more effectively compete in global markets.

Christopher Lundh continues: "A project on this scale requires a lot of skill and hard work. We want to thank the General Tax Administration (AGT) for their support in clearing the equipment quickly and safely, as well as the National Institute of Social Security (INSS) for collaborating in the physical installation of the data center so that its most critical access and energy needs could be met."

As with other Africell activities in Angola, the data center will create jobs for highly qualified technicians in the areas of information technology, engineering and telecommunications. Functions will include IT services, infrastructure monitoring and maintenance, and ongoing energy security and performance analysis.

"I am very pleased with the progress of our operation here in Angola," says Ziad Dalloul, President and CEO of Africell Group. "The solid foundation we are laying today, the terms of recruitment, investment and planning, will benefit our customers once we officially launch mobile network services. Africell is excited about the opportunity to bring unprecedented innovation to the Angolan sector and we look forward to offering Angolan mobile users a better and more affordable service than ever before."
