BringCom completes African fibre ring

BringCom Incorporated, a provider of connectivity solutions in Africa, has announced the completion of its pan-African fibre ring network.

The company says that its new fibre ring network will link BringCom’s points of presence (PoPs) in East and West Africa to its European hub in London, providing BringCom customers with protected and reliable connectivity services.

BringCom Incorporated, headquartered in Sterling, VA in the US, has built pan-African Ethernet and MPLS networks with its own PoPs in Sterling, London, Djibouti, Nairobi, Kampala and Lagos.

This pan-African fibre ring not only offers the company’s corporate and government customers seamless connectivity and increased redundancy in Africa but, the company says, BringCom customers’ international traffic can also be interconnected via numerous cable landings to the networks of its local partners.

BringCom’s provision of reliable domestic last-mile circuits in Africa is now enhanced, the company adds, by the additional protection built into its continent-wide backhaul network.

This network expansion initiative is part of BringCom’s growth strategy in Africa to add secure, reliable, and diverse connectivity routes while providing innovative services such as SD-WAN, SASE (secure access service edge), and edge cloud services.

BringCom says that its enterprise SD-WAN services will lower costs, increase business agility, and improve multi-cloud applications performance. BringCom’s SD-WAN platform also acts as a cloud connect service to deliver complete solutions for afriQloud.

afriQloud is BringCom’s local and distributed cloud services platform providing digital infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) for virtual data centre and virtual machine (compute) needs in East Africa.
