Next-Generation Connectivity

Integrated cable landing stations (CLS) and internet exchange points (IXP) allow you to connect from wherever you are, to wherever you need to be, through high-capacity, low-latency, secure connections. We connect between cities, metro areas, countries and continents.

OADC data centres are 100 per cent open access and carrier neutral to any metro network operator, internet service provider or telecom operator.

Our clients have direct access to 100Tbps+ of international capacity via new subsea cable systems led by Google (Equiano), launching in 2022 and Facebook (2Africa consortium), planned to be operational 2023/2024. CLS PoPs will be hosted directly in our key data centres.

Each of our data centres will have independent IXPs for the exchange of internet traffic via multi-layer and bi-lateral Layer 2 peering, advancing the development of Africa’s internet ecosystem by reducing latency and making the internet more affordable.  To maximise options for network diversity, there will be Day1 connectivity to other in-country data centres, CLSs and IXPs.

OADC clients have instant connectivity to cloud services through locally-hosted, global cloud platforms – seamlessly connecting their IT infrastructure to public or private cloud resources. Our data centres provide fully-redundant networking, delivering the privacy, reliability and control that our clients expect from high-performance, hybrid cloud architecture.

Dedicated low-latency international links between our data centres also enable services such as disaster recovery and multi-national corporate operations.

We are constructing a pan-African, carrier-neutral data centre footprint to support cloud providers and wholesale clients in extending their businesses across Africa. We are able to deliver the scalability and flexibility they require, together with unparalleled levels of client interaction, expert assistance and partnership in tailoring solutions that match their needs.
