Expereo has announced its expansion into the Latin American market by launching cloud acceleration hubs in Sao Paulo, Brazil

The managed Internet network solutions firm aims to improve both application performance and availability in the country by rerouting processes to provide better connections for remote offices or private clouds.

It has found that Argentina, Columbia and Ecuador also “struggle” to achieve consistent internet performance due to “poor routing decisions” to South America.

Expereo is also planning to expand into Mexico and the west coast of America by 2020.

“As technology continues to evolve, a surge of new business is taking hold in previously ‘hard to reach’ city hubs around the world,” commented Sander Barens, CCO at Expereo. “Many global corporations are expanding into Latin America, particularly in Brazil. To succeed, they need guaranteed performance and reliability from their Internet. We see an enormous opportunity for the cloud to accelerate economic growth here.”

By using a network of cloud acceleration hubs to probe public internet traffic, Expereo has found that user traffic can create a topology of the internet, allowing it to record performance metrics such as packet loss, latency, throughput and historical reliability.

Based on the data gathered, Expereo has claimed that its intelligent routing platform (XCA) can identify the “most efficient path”, which is not the necessarily the shortest, between individual networks, resulting in it “optimising the user experience”.

"By continuing to expand our cloud acceleration hubs, Expereo will deliver seamless internet access worldwide, even to those locations with historically poor connectivity,” added Barens. “From Africa to Brazil, and Mexico in 2020, Expereo is constantly evolving to meet our customers’ needs.”

Expereo is part of the Ngena alliance, which has expanded from just four carriers to 25 to provide SD-WAN access to 200 countries and territories. Its chief, Alessandro Adriani, recently told Alan Burkitt-Gray how it is enabling member companies to offer services around the world
