Angola Cables announces major US partnership project

Angola Cables, the Angola-based multinational telecoms company, has announced a major partnership project in the US.

Angola Cables, the Angola-based multinational telecoms company, has announced a major partnership project in the US.

The company, which is also building the first subsea cable in the Southern Hemisphere directly connecting Brazil to Africa, has announced that US-based FiberLight LLC will provide backhaul connectivity in the US, starting with the Miami and Florida region.

This partnership will enable the delivery of Monet derived services to a wider range of clients and markets. The recently completed 10,556-km Monet cable linking Florida to Brazil is capable of delivering a minimum of 64 Tbps of capacity, providing a low-latency route to users in the U.S. and Latin America.

Angola Cables operates two fibre optic pairs within the Monet cable system, one transmitting data from Fortaleza, Brazil to US shores and the other carrying traffic to Sao Paulo, Brazil.

According to António Nunes, CEO of Angola Cables, the appointment of FiberLight offers extended advantages to local and international connectivity operators.

“FiberLight is a widely-respected fibre-optic based entity focused on supplying high performance connectivity services to multiple locations,” said Nunes.

“The link-up with FiberLight will allow Angola Cables to deliver reliable, high graded services beyond the Monet cable termination point of MI3 Equinix and the data center in Boca Raton at Equinix’s MI1 colocation facility in Miami, Florida.”
