Angola Cables Increases Capacity

Luanda — The multinational telecommunications company Angola Cables increased the capacity of its portal from 10GE (Gigabit Ethernet) to 100G, as part of its partnership with the London Internet Exchange (LINX).

A note received last Wednesday from ANGOP states that, in this way, international operators and networks from Africa and Latin America have the possibility to connect to LINX to support the growth of intercontinental IP traffic: Latin America - Africa - Europe.

Without specifying exactly when this occurred, he explains that the upgrade of the portal capacity should allow the sustained growth of traffic originating in South America and the west coast of Africa in search of content in Europe.

Among the benefits for networks, there is a reduction in latency, cost efficiency, localization or approximation of content to the final consumer.

By the way, the Technical Director of Angola Cables, Fernando Azevedo, stated that the increased capacity in the connection between Angola Cables and LINX allows a greater volume of IP traffic through the peering facilities (traffic exchange) with several networks in London.

"Users will have added advantages in the performance and quality of data exchange".

Angola Cables is a company in the ICT sector with differentiated connectivity solutions for the wholesale and corporate segment.

The London Internet Exchange, founded in 1994, is one of the largest traffic exchange points in the world, connecting 900 members / ASNs from 80 countries.
