Submarine Cable Connectivity

FibreCo is in a unique position to provide capacity across its national terrestrial fibre-optic network using bespoke optical transmission system configured optimally for the purpose of interconnecting the submarine cable-landing stations on the East and West coast of South Africa.

This product will provide owners of submarine cable capacity on the WACS, Seacom, EaSSY, SAT3 and SAFE systems with a faster, low-latency and more economical route around the southern tip of Africa to create:

  • A much shorter route between East and West Africa than is currently available through Europe

  • An alternative intercontinental route between Asia and Europe/the Americas to the existing route through Egypt and Eastern Europe.

Given FibreCo’s carrier-neutral, open-access model, it can offer access to this bespoke system on the basis of true-ownership economics with associated infrastructure-ownership benefits.   

FibreCo’s pricing and product configuration are specifically tailored to suit international carriers wanting to bypass the South African market, although drop-off options into Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban and other cities can be catered for on the core DWDM FibreCo Network.

The ring architecture is a highly resilient system which mitigates any risk of downtime on the terrestrial system.

NAPAfrica

In today’s broadband market of exploding traffic volumes, networks, ISPs and content providers peer to exchange their traffic in order to achieve cost and latency efficiencies. NAPAfrica is a neutral, layer 2 Internet eXchange (IX) point, located within each Teraco data centre facility in South Africa.

Instead of costly multiple direct links to different providers, a single peering point allows multiple networks and ISPs to interconnect using an exchange environment.

Together

FibreCo’s state-of-the-art network is capable of transmitting ultra-fast broadband capacity from any of its 52 county wide points of presence to any of the NAPAfrica Internet exchanges (IXs) across the country, allowing peers to exchange their traffic and achieve:

  • Reduced costs in local bandwidth;
  • Reduced latency with simplified routing and direct interconnects;
  • Improved performance by bypassing potential traffic bottlenecks;
  • Increased resilience by offering convenient multiple network connection options;
  • Access to global content from Akamai, Cloudflare, Google, Microsoft and Netflix to name just a few
  • Direct access to NAPAfrica as part of the FibreCo solution

These benefits are realised without additional capital outlay at the Internet exchange. Connectivity options and content demands within South Africa, Africa and the rest of the world are growing. Network and Content Providers are reaping the benefits of exchanges where traffic can be exchanged easily.
