Neotel said that it will benefit from the completion of Tata Communications’ round-the-world fibre optic cable network, providing it with an advantage over other South African service providers.

Tata Communications recently launched its Tata Global Network – Eurasia (TGN-EA) cable, which the company said completed the “world’s first round-the-world fibre optic cable network”.

“The cable connects Europe to India, through Egypt, bringing increased capacity, resilience and enhanced communications links to not only the Middle East, but to the rest of the world,” Tata Communications said.

Neotel said that the development allows it to strengthen its IP solutions capability, provide lower latency network solutions and offer more resilient network products.

Neotel explained that it has invested in infrastructure comprising of approximately 6,900km of fibre in South Africa, and further makes use of SAT-3/SAFE, EASSy and Seacom for international connectivity.

“With the announcement of the ring around the world, Neotel’s infrastructure seamlessly connects to 360,000km of submarine cables assets. This strengthens Neotel’s capability to seamlessly connect South African businesses to approximately 300 cities in 200 countries across 6 continents,” said Neotel.

“Neotel can assist SA businesses to expand to any market and provide ubiquitous network and voice services within South Africa. Such infrastructure also allows for higher uptimes and redundant solutions that are necessary for critical business’ needs,” said Neotel.

“We connect companies with the best possible latency and resilience that cannot be matched by other service providers. This has further strengthened Neotel’s ability to provide any network service (point to point or MPLS/VPN or Ethernet) that a customer may require to grow their business footprint in South Africa as well as anywhere in the world.”
