ANGOLA Cables and Orange have entered into a partnership to share infrastructure on the West African Djoliba Network, enabling customers to directly access Francophone markets in West Africa. The agreement allows both companies to expand their global connectivity by sharing Orange’s inland networks and Angola Cables’ subsea cable network and backbone infrastructure.
Rui Faria, Global Commercial Director of Angola Cables, highlighted the importance of efficient and secure digital and cloud services in today’s gigabyte economy. He stated, ‘Access to the West Africa Djoliba network and our robust submarine infrastructure broadens the capability of businesses in accessing international markets and offers expanded traffic destinations across West Africa and other parts of the world.’
The Djoliba Network is a 10,000km terrestrial fibre optic network that provides complete security and offers high-speed broadband provision at a 99.99 percent availability rate, reaching speeds of up to 100Gbps. By combining the Djoliba network with Angola Cables’ global network of subsea cables (WACS, SACS, and MONET), users will benefit from secure, low-latency connectivity and increased redundancy options to various destinations in South America, the US, and Europe.
