Brazilian regional ISP Mob Telecom has announced an agreement with Angola Cables, a multinational operator in the fibre optic telecommunications sector, to strengthen its data centre offering.
Founded in Fortaleza, Mob Telecom is one of the main ISPs providing internet access to residential customers and companies in the capital of Ceará, one of the 27 states of Brazil, located in the north-eastern part of the country, on the Atlantic coast.
The company has been in the market for over 25 years, serving more than 15 states and over 140,000 direct customers and 900,000 indirect customers in the north, northeast, southeast and midwest of the country. It has a fibre optic network of more than 30,000 km. Recently, the company reached 1.2 Tbps of traffic between Brazil and Europe, using SACS and WACS submarine cables.
Precise details of the deal with Angola Cables were not available but, according to Glauber Luna, corporate market manager of Mob Telecom, quoted in the Brazilian press, “With this new data centre, we will serve more government projects in all states and municipalities, as well as international demands, increasing delivery in the interstate and international telecom networks.”
Among the customers using Mob Telecom's data centre are local clients such as Casablanca Turismo, Unip, Railroad and Bomar Pescados, and international clients such as Akamai Technologies and Yahoo.
In addition to Angola Cables, Mob Telecom has recently announced partnerships with Amazon and IBM , focusing on the use of cloud computing services, mainly for the corporate market. Mob Telecom also has plans to expand its fibre optic network in states in the north and northeast as well as in Ceará itself.
