Broadband connectivity is currently a popular product around the world. Guaranteeing companies’ access to high quality is the objective set by Angola Cables, which wants to become a world benchmark supplier.

Angola Cables has strengthened the data capacities of its international submarine fiber optic cable called MONET. 2.2 terabits were added to the network segments connecting Miami in the United States and Fortaleza and São Paulo in Brazil to improve the performance of bandwidth-intensive cloud services. The broadband connectivity provider revealed on Thursday, May 6 that this technological mission has been accomplished by the Ciena company, which specializes in networking systems, services and software.

“  Ciena has allowed us to expand our submarine cable network to reach a wider range of customers with more bandwidth and improved services  ,” said Angelo Gama (photo) Chairman and CEO of Angola Cables .

Angola Cables justifies the increase in the capacities of its optical fiber submarine cable by the current rapid and massive adoption of digital services across the world. An adoption which should increase in the coming years with the accelerated digitization of the world caused among other things by Covid-19. In its “Annual Internet Report (2018–2023) White Paper ”, Cisco estimates that strong demand for connectivity will push global fixed broadband speeds to 110.4 megabits per second (Mbps) by 2023 from 45.9 Mbps in 2018.

With improvements to its network between São Paulo and Miami and the new Fortaleza Data Center (AngoNAP), Angola Cables is positioning itself to become a leading provider of connectivity and related services in the region. Many businesses will be able to take advantage of its low latency direct connection to further stimulate their development.
