Angola Cables breaks ground for its Brazilian Data Center
Multinational telecommunications company, Angola Cables, announced today that construction had begun on its South American data center, located in Fortaleza, Brazil. The data center is an important next step in the company’s roll-out of promoting the digital inclusion and empowerment of Africa by the use of subsea internet cable connecting Africa to the Americas and providing high speed internet at some of the lowest latency speeds between the two continents.
Angola Cables was launched in 2009 with the mission of becoming the leading driver of digital enablement in Africa. The Fortaleza center represents another important step in developing international routes for digital traffic between the Americas and Africa.
Two key routes will run from the Data center. The SACS system will connect the Fortaleza center to Luanda and is expected to be completed by mid-2018. The Monet Cable will connect Miami with both Fortaleza and Sao Paulo Brazil and is due to be completed by the end of 2017. However, the Data Centre aims to accommodate more cables from the cable dense region of Fortaleza.
