BringCom Incorporated, a provider of connectivity solutions says it has received new orders totaling over $2,670,000 for African-based fiber optic circuits.
The company says the first award from DITCO Europe, under a competitive procurement, includes the supply of a 100MB MPLS circuit from West Africa to Europe. The additional circuits include a 50MB MPLS circuit from Africa to Europe and a 10MB MPLS intra-Africa circuit.
The 50MB circuit will use the BringCom’s newly-established MPLS Point of Presence (PoP) in Nairobi, Kenya and its existing MPLS PoP at the Djibouti Teleport facility in the Republic of Djibouti as well as managed Network Operating Center (NOC) services from the United States and the Republic of Djibouti.
Commenting on the deal, Fabrice Langreney, President and CEO of BringCom said: “These new circuit awards reflect BringCom’s strategy to grow and expand its MPLS connectivity network across Africa with the support of local and regional telecom operators,”
“BringCom’s strategy and investment in the region, including its new ability to offer BringCom managed SEA-ME-WE 5 submarine cable capacity when available in 2017, allows us to increase our ability to competitively service the stringent requirements of diverse customers with very challenging telecommunications applications”, he adds.
According to the company, BringCom’s Djibouti Teleport continues to serve as its pan-African gateway where it has access to multiple submarine cables linking customers in Africa to Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
