Multinational telecoms company, Angola Cables has added additional peering points at the following international locations: IX.BR São Paulo and Fortaleza, Equinix Ashburn and Miami (formerly NOTA), and NIIX and DE-CIX in New York.

IP Product Manager of Angola Cables, Darwin Costa, said: “The new peering points will further enhance the overall performance and significantly reduce the latency for our customers globally, making our IP network (AS#37468) more robust and reliable.”

The company has existing peering activities within the following exchange points:
Angonix (Luanda, Angola), GigaPIX (Lisbon, Portugal), LINX (London, UK), DE-CIX (Frankfurt, Germany), AMS-IX (Amsterdam, Netherlands), France-IX (Marseille, France), Espanix (Madrid, Spain) and Nap of Africa (Cape Town and Johannesburg, South Africa).

The higher volume, high speed connectivity capabilities and services brought about by the recent introduction and commissioning of the Monet Cable System (Angola Cables is a consortium member) is anticipated to significantly enhance connectivity between the USA and Brazil.

Costa said, “The recent move into the Americas is part of a directed global strategy to continuously improve our IP network by connecting to dense data centers and major IX´s in USA and Brazil
region. Collectively, these initiatives are having a positive impact on the quality IP transit ecosystem, backhauling and Mpls/VPN products on a carrier-class IP network.”

“Since the implementation of our IP node in São Paulo, Brazil – and becoming a member of IX.Br, the world’s largest internet exchange point of active peering members, we have seen a rapid and exponential growth in sessions across our IPV4 and IPV6 peering base respectively.”

Angola Cables (AS#37468) doubled the V4 sessions from 1373 to 2575 sessions with 1215 active sessions being registered on V6.
