The country is providing a meeting point for a fibre optic cable system connecting Europe, the Middle East and Asia to Africa. This new internet exchange point gives the IT industry in Djibouti a boost, and proves to be healthy competition for neighbours like Kenya.
“Collocated just meters from the new Djibouti Telecom cable landing station, the DDC offers international telecommunications carriers and content delivery network (CDN) providers neutral collocation facilities, Internet Exchange, and other enhanced services in one of the fastest growing regions in the world,” the company said.
“The Djibouti Data Center (DDC) has simplified undersea cable head access and backhaul, interconnection, collocation, and Internet access capabilities for all service providers looking to expand in Africa, one of the fastest growing regions of the world,” said Anthony Voscarides, Chief Executive Officer at the Djibouti Data Center. The DDC accomplishes this in a secure and fully redundant facility in one of the most strategic locations of the world for undersea fiber cable access connecting Europe, The Middle East, and Asia with Africa.”
