Angola Cables operates a strong submarine cable infrastructure and a highly interconnected IP network through its SACS, Monet and WACS submarine cable systems directly connecting America, Africa and Europe. The company has also established partnerships to expand its footprint into Asia.
The fiber optic infrastructure manager Angola Cables has entrusted the optical network solutions provider Infinera with the modernization of its submarine network linking the cities of Miami (United States) and São Paulo (Brazil). This project, announced on Monday, October 17, should enable Angola Cables to increase the capacities of its network and prepare to meet the growing demand for bandwidth in the region.
Angola Cables’ submarine network between the United States and Brazil extends over 6,500 kilometers. For its modernization, Infinera will use its ICE6 technology which will allow Angola Cables “ to lay the necessary foundation for upgrading all segments of its cable system to meet the needs of its customers today and in the future ”, according to Nick Walden, senior vice president of worldwide sales at Infinera.
This announcement comes about a month after Angola Cables announced its intention to expand its data center in Fortaleza (AngoNAP Fortaleza), Brazil, given the success of this infrastructure in the State of Ceará and the prospects for growing connectivity demands in the region.
The modernization of its network should enable Angola Cables to respond effectively to the growing demand for bandwidth from businesses, administrations and network service providers in the Americas. The modernization of its entire global network that should follow should allow the company to increase not only the capacity made available to its customers, but also its geographical coverage and its revenues.
