Angola Cables has added new peering locations as part of its global expansion to have more net coverage. The new peering points are at following international locations: IX.BR São Paulo and Fortaleza, Equinix Ashburn and Miami (formerly NOTA) and NIIX and De-CIX in New York.
Speaking on the development, IP Product Manager of the company, Darwin Costa, disclosed that the new peering points will further enhance the overall performance and significantly reduce the latency for our customers globally, making AS#37468 more robust and reliable.
Angola Cables, a multinational telecoms 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).
According to Costa, the recent move into the Americas is part of a directed global strategy to continuously improve the company’s 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 base respectively, ” he said.
Angola Cables (AS#37468) doubled the V4 sessions from 1373 to 2575 sessions with 1215 active sessions being registered on V6.
