Angola Cables to become new DE-CIX reseller

24 May 2018 | Alan Burkitt-Gray

Angola Cables enters into a reseller relationship with DE-CIX to offer connectivity and remote peering solutions to its customers, at DE-CIX hubs in North America and Europe.

The DE-CIX reseller programme allows third parties like Angola Cables to resell peering ports in any area where they have an infrastructure. Remote peering enables network expansion by connecting customers to an IX remotely, eliminating the need for extra infrastructure, dealing with contractual and legal issues and different technical teams.

"We are proud to become the first Angolan reseller of DE-CIX premium interconnection services, targeting Africa and South America," said Antonio Nunes, CEO of Angola Cables.

"The recent implementation of DE-CIX reseller services highlights our commitment to helping our customers expand into new markets, lessening the digital divide, and improving the internet experience for end-users in main markets of Africa and South America."

Angola Cables will connect to the DE-CIX locations in New York, Frankfurt, Madrid and Marseille, and the agreement with DE-CIX indicates that the African and South American networks will have an alternative route between Europe and North America.

"Ever since 2013, we at DE-CIX have had a very strong and trustful partnership with Angola Cables. By adding them to our reseller portfolio, we are taking our cooperation to the next level," said Ivo Ivanov, CEO of DE-CIX International.
