Angola Cables and Orange team up on infrastructure sharing on Djoliba network

06 June 2023

Angola Cables and Orange have agreed to an infrastructure sharing agreement on the West African Djoliba Network.

The arrangement gives customers direct access to the Francophone markets of West Africa and gives both companies the option to extend their respective global connectivity by sharing inland networks and the subsea cable network and backbone infrastructure of Angola Cables.

“Getting access to efficient and secure digital and cloud services is an essential requirement for any business in today’s gigabyte economy,” said global commercial director of Angola Cables Rui Faria. “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.”

Djoliba is the first network to offer complete security in West Africa with more than 10,000km of terrestrial fibre optic network offering, superfast broadband provision (up to 100 Gbps) at a 99.99% availability rate.

The expansion of infrastructure combining the Djoliba terrestrial end-to-end fibre optic network and Angola Cables’ already established global network of WACS, SACS and MONET cables will offer clients secure, low latency connectivity - and additional redundancy options to multiple destinations in South America, the USA and Europe.
