    Data Center da Angola Cables em Fortaleza

    Empresa interligará América do Sul, América do Norte e África com rotas alternativas, através de dois novos cabos submarinos, fortalecendo setor de data centers no Nordeste

    20 April 2017

    ...

    A Angola Cables é uma multinacional de telecomunicações fundada em 2009 cujo core business é a comercialização por atacado de capacidade em circuitos internacionais de voz e dados, através de sistemas de cabo submarino. A Angola Cables é um dos maiores acionistas do WACS (West Africa Cable System), prestando serviços para operadores em Angola e na região subsaariana do continente africano.

    Entre seus principais projetos estão, o SACS (South Atlantic Cable System) e o Monet, cabos submarinos que irão interligar América do Norte, América do Sul e África, levando em consideração o crescimento de penetração na África.

    O Data Center da Angola Cables em Fortaleza terá aproximadamente 3000 metros quadrados de construção com um design de Tier III, levando em consideração elementos como as condições climáticas da região (PUE estimado 1,6), bem como os desenvolvimentos tecnológicos esperados para o Ceará.

    O DC Fortaleza, será o primeiro data center conectado a dois cabos submarinos, o SACS que ligará Brasil a Angola (Africa ao Sul da América) com 40 Tbps de capacidade; um sistema com mais de 6.000 Km de distância e com investimento de US$ 130 milhões, e o Monet que ligará Santos, Fortaleza e Miami com 28Tbps de capacidade inicial, cabo submarino com investimento inicial de US$ 170 milhões e uma extensão de 10.500 Km.

    ...

    "Dados mais recentes apontam que somente 10% de todos os serviços de Colocation/Data Center são subcontratados ... algo que esperamos que mude a medida que o mercado ganhe mais maturidade", disse Fábio José, gestor de Produtos para Data Center & Conectividade da Angola Cables.

    Outro indicador favorável, segundo o executivo, é que 90% dos data centers no Brasil se encontram no Sudeste e nas grandes cidades, o que cria uma oportunidade para criar condições de servir o mercado do Nordeste, região que tem desenvolvido capacidades na área das tecnologias da informação. O que se torna evidente em iniciativas como o Cinturão Digital do Ceará, parques tecnológicos, também o número crescente de cabos submarinos (6 ativos e 5 previstos).

    PR: Angola Cables: Cable System connecting Africa and the Americas reaches a major milestones to create a new route for Internet traffic

    LUANDA, Angola, April 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Taking a step closer to completing a valuable new route for the global telecommunications sector, Angola Cables today announced the completion of the marine survey for the South Atlantic Cable System (SACS), as well as the start of cable loading on the Angolan side of SACS. Marking an important milestone in the development of the globally relevant project, when completed, SACS will interconnect with the Monet cable system — connecting the United States and Brazil — and WACS, the West Africa Cable System.

    SACS is a 40 Tbps cable — 6,165 km in length — with four fibre pairs that will connect Angola to Brazil, linking Africa and the Americas. (Each fibre pair is capable of transmitting 100 wavelengths with a bandwidth of 100Gbit/s.) Angola Cables is one of the 12 members of the consortium that manages WACS (and one of its largest shareholders), a cable system which provides carrier level services to operators in Angola and Sub-Saharan Africa across 11 countries. As a 14,530 km cable running from Yzerfontein (South Africa) to London (UK), WACS has four fibre pairs and includes 14 landing points, 12 along the western coast of Africa (including Cape Verde and Canary Islands) and two in Europe (Portugal and England).

    With the marine survey successfully completed, Angola Cables assures that the cable will be deployed in the best route, thus avoiding hazardous points, a crucial factor in ensuring longevity of SACS. Completion of the marine survey means that final manufacturing can be completed and any minor route and/or cable type adjustments can be fine-tuned based on the actual survey findings. With the loading of the Pre-Laid Shore End (PLSE) the construction of SACS is underway. For this aspect of the cable system, Angola Cables commissioned NEC Japan and contracted Ocean Specialists, Inc (OSI) to oversee the construction process, all to assure the highest levels of quality.

    "We have worked closely with our partners and suppliers to ensure the highest possible value of the SACS network for our customers," said Antonio Nunes, CEO of Angola Cables. "As part of our global connectivity strategy, SACS will offer the first direct, high-capacity southern transatlantic connection."

    SACS to be ready by the middle of 2018

    "These key milestones illustrate that the SACS cable is on target for completion as Angola Cables continues to build sales momentum for delivery of services on SACS by the middle of 2018. Increasingly, customers are turning to the southern transatlantic route for diversification and security. SACS, coupled with Monet and the existing WACS cable, provide unparalleled value for which we are seeing very high demand in the marketplace," added Artur Mendes, Chief Commercial Officer for Angola Cables.

    Construction commences on Angola Cables' South Atlantic Cable System (SACS) by NEC

    - First submarine cable system directly linking Africa and Latin America will help to spur international trade and economic growth in both continents

    Luanda, ANGOLA and Tokyo, JAPAN - (April 6, 2016) - Angola Cables S.A., an Angolan telecoms wholesale operator, and NEC Corporation, a leading IT system supplier, announced today that the contract to build the South Atlantic Cable System (SACS), the first subsea fiber optic cable system ever to connect Africa and South America in the southern hemisphere has come into force. SACS is scheduled to be ready for service by the middle of 2018. The project cost is expected to reach $160 million and will be partially co-funded by the Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC) and Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation (SMBC) with the support of Nippon Export and Investment Insurance (NEXI) through the Banco de Desenvolvimento de Angola (BDA).

    SACS will connect Luanda, Angola and Fortaleza, Brazil, directly linking the African continent to Latin America for the first time, spanning more than 6,200 km across the South Atlantic, enabling high speed and large capacity international data transmissions. From Fortaleza, SACS can be connected to another cable system which stretches to Miami Florida, enabling Angola and Africa to connect directly with the USA.

    SACS will feature the latest optical technologies to provide the most advanced subsea telecommunications system, coupled with a control plane based on innovative Software-Defined Networking (SDN) technology to serve bandwidth-intensive applications. SACS will have an initial design capacity of 40Tpbs (100Gbps x 100 wavelengths x 4 fiber pairs).

    "Our main objective is to improve the quality of communications between Africa and the Americas, creating a totally new route in the south hemisphere, providing term and peak capacity product offerings and support for the region's expanding data requirements of today and for tomorrow," says Antonio Nunes, CEO of Angola Cables. "SACS will be constructed using state-of-the-art technology, with 100G-coherent design for low latency, reliable delivery for even the most demanding bandwidth needs and direct data centre to data centre connectivity across the Atlantic."

    "The South Atlantic Cable System is a unique cable system that will directly link Angola to Brazil and the rest of the world, and NEC Corporation prides itself to be the system supplier and would like to thank Angola Cables for giving NEC the chance to be part of this epoch-making cable," said Toru Kawauchi, General Manager at NEC's Submarine Network Division. "We would also like to extend our gratitude to JBIC, SMBC and NEXI, for providing the much needed financial support, without them SACS would not have been realized. As one of the world's top vendors of submarine cable systems, with more than 40 years of experience constructing over 200,000 kilometers of cable systems, NEC is committed to the successful completion of SACS and to building on our relationship with Angola Cables."

    South Atlantic Cable System Construction Underway



    Rob Powell
    April 24th, 2017

    It's been in the works for half a decade or more now, but the South Atlantic Cable System is apparently finally off the drawing board and under construction. Earlier this month, NEC announced that the contract to build SACS had come into force, and late last week, Angola Cables announced that the marine survey is now complete and the loading of the pre-laid shore end on the Angolan side is underway.

    SACS will cross the Atlantic in the same way that dozens before it have, except that the path will be between two different continents - Africa and South America. It will hook up Fortaleza on the Brazilian coastline with Luanda in Angola. At Fortaleza, SACS will interconnect with, among others, the new Monet system being built up to North America. On the other end, it will interconnect with WACS, which stretches along the west coast of Africa hooking up a dozen markets.

    If all goes as planned, SACS will have an initial design capacity of 40Tbps, made up of 100x100Gbps links on four fiber pairs stretching 6200km. The price tag will be some $160M according to NEC, which seems lower than I would have expected.

    I have had my doubts that this cable system would overcome its funding hurdles and actually get built, and until it's ready for service in mid-2018 they probably won't go away entirely. After all, while there are plenty of engineering reasons why one would want such a cable making the economic case has always been rather harder. Traffic levels in South American and Africa have been rising rapidly of course, but the raw numbers have a long, long way to go to compete with the bits being transferred between the developed nations north of the equator.




    Next maybe we can turn our attention to the neglected South Pacific route between Australia/New Zealand and Chile? Just kidding, mostly...

    Angola Cables to peer at NAPAfrica – Africa’s most connected Internet Exchange

    With an aim to become a major IP transit and MPLS player in sub-Saharan Africa, Angola Cables has chosen NAPAfrica as its peering point. NAPAfrica is Africa’s largest Internet Exchange Point (IXP), with over 240 unique connected networks and 140Gbps peering traffic. NAPAfrica, which is colocated within all Teraco data centre facilities, provides peering across sub-Saharan Africa from Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town.

    21 February 2017

    Darwin Costa, IP Product Manager, Angola Cables, says that the operator, together with the Angolan government are working to build Angola into a major telecommunications hub: “It is vital to ensure that the African traffic remains within the continent, and at the same time customers are guaranteed improved Internet connectivity.” He says that another aim is to enable super-fast access to Europe from South Africa, via its main hub in Lisbon and the European ring network.

    Costa says that the decision to peer with NAPAfrica was based on its ability to offer an impressive list of international content delivery networks and carriers: “NAPAfrica is also the most complete IXP across the African continent. We believe that by combining strengths, Angola Cables, a growing telecommunications hub, will be able to provide links to and from South Africa from Angola, as well as to Brazil and the USA, once the South Atlantic Cable System (SACS) is in operation.”

    Michele McCann, business development manager, Teraco says that NAPAfrica is the perfect partner for Angola Cables and will undoubtedly increase interconnection between Angola and the rest of the world: “This is not simply about peering, the collaboration will impact Internet connectivity across several countries and improve the services of Angola Cables as well as create a platform for the country to compete on a global stage.”

    Costa says that choosing NAPAfrica was not a difficult decision as it is the main hub on the continent and best way to avoid traffic loops for inner African traffic via Europe: “Our customers are situated across the African continent and we want the best route possible for their traffic.”

    Tier 1 operators are yet to successfully focus on the African continent and Costa says that peering with NAPAfrica enables Angola Cables to reduce latency and increase bandwidth throughput. He says this will increase the overall connectivity performance on the continent: “We want to use peering as a tool to keep traffic paths local and throughput as high as possible. The majority of traffic, for and in Africa, does still travel outside the continent, and with peering we have the ability to change this in order for customers to derive the most benefit.”

    By providing customers with stable Internet connectivity, Angola Cables is able to directly impact the growth of the digital Angolan economy, as well as other countries where it is an operator. “Our experience with NAPAfrica has been excellent and has enabled us to think bigger in terms of the role Angola Cables can play in the overall improvement of the Internet across Africa.”

    He says the company, with the help of NAPAfrica, is changing the way global data flows with its connectivity from Johannesburg to Lisbon, Angola, London, Fortaleza and Florida: “We are very excited to have NAPAfrica as one of the main drivers for our in-demand new cable system.”

    McCann says that NAPAfrica is committed to assisting Angola Cables in becoming a main hub on the West-Coast of Africa: “Through our peering exchange and neutral platform we can link Angola and its neighbouring countries, as well as connecting South and North America with the hub in South Africa. This project proves that peering is not just about connectivity, it is about growing networks and enhancing business across the continent. It boosts business in Africa and that is what it is all about for the team.”

    Se você tem de um lado um presidente filho de pedreiro que governa Angola desde 1979, cuja filha prodigio no periodo se tornou a mulher mais rica do continente, e no outro um operário multimilionario e uma mulher honesta no poder, nada é dificil.

    Data center da Angola Cables irá operar em 2018


    Data center na Praia do Futuro está previsto para ser concluído no início de 2018

    A Angola Cables está investindo em Fortaleza, com incentivos do governo brasileiro, na construção de duas estações para abrigar cabos submarinos, data center e compra de equipamentos .

    O projeto da construção do data center foi aprovado no âmbito do Regime Especial de Tributação do Programa Nacional de Banda Larga para Implantação de Redes de Telecomunicações (REPNBL).

    O valor do investimento que será beneficiado é de US$ 30 milhões. Esses recursos poderão ser reduzidos com a desoneração fiscal do Imposto sobre Produtos Industrializados (IPI), do Programa de Integração Social (PIS) e da Contribuição para o Financiamento da Seguridade Social (Cofins). A redução média fica em torno de 11%, mas, dependendo do projeto, pode chegar a 25%.

    Cinco operadoras compõem a Angola Cables: a estatal Angola Telecom (51%), Unitel (31%), MS Telecom (9%), Movicel (6%) e Startel (3%).

    A desoneração será dada à subsidiária nacional da empresa angolana, a Angola Cables do Brasil.

    Fortaleza abrigará um PoP do sistema Monet (consórcio Angola Cables, Algar Telecom, Google, e a operadora uruguaia Antel), entre Santos (SP) e Miami (EUA). O Monet já foi totalmente instalado e o início das operações está previsto para o fim deste ano.

    A cidade também será um dos pontos de conexão do cabo submarino Sacs (Soth Atlantic Cable System), que irá interligar a capital cearense à Luanda, capital de Angola. O RTT previsto é de 63ms.

    Polo regional

    Os investimentos da Angola Cables são apenas os primeiros previstos para o chamado Parque Criativo e Tecnológico de Fortaleza, na Praia do Futuro, cuja área foi delimitada em 3,85 km² pela Prefeitura.

    Fortaleza ocupa uma posição estratégica, a 6 mil quilômetros de Luanda, 5 mil quilômetros de São Paulo e 7 mil quilômetros de Miami.

    A Prefeitura de Fortaleza tem parcerias firmadas para o aporte de mais quatro cabos submarinos que interligarão a cidade de Fortaleza à América Central, Nova Iorque (EUA), São Paulo, Lisboa (Portugal) e Kribi (Camarões).

    "Quando falamos de energia e conectividade, a gente começa a entender o porquê dos negócios aqui instalados. Percebemos que foram feitos grandes investimentos na rede de energia. Em 2015, o Estado do Ceará aumentou a sua produção de energia elétrica, ao contrário do Brasil. Isso na área pública", destaca o CEO da Angola Cables Brasil, Rafael Pistono, acrescentando os crescentes investimentos do setor privado no segmento, englobando principalmente a geração de energia solar e eólica.

    "Quando a gente olha para a conectividade, de 2010 para 2014 o Ceará teve a segunda maior taxa de municípios conectados no Nordeste e tem a maior rede de conexão pública do Brasil (Cinturão Digital), interligando 116 dos 184 municípios do Estado", acrescenta Pistono.

    "Mais do que baratear a conectividade, o que nós traremos para o consumidor é um serviço de mais qualidade e velocidade", destacou o CEO da empresa no Brasil.

    GU Holdings

    Telecom Review
    July-August 2016

    ...

    Monet will land in three locations: Boca Raton, Florida, Santos, Brazil, and Fortaleza, Brazil. The system will have three segments: Segment 1 from Boca Raton to a branching unit (“BU”), Segment 2 from Fortaleza to the BU, and Segment 3 from Santos to the BU. The principal portion of Monet (the “Main System”), composed of Segment 1 and Segment 3, will have six fiber pairs with a total capacity of 64 Terabits per second (“Tbps”). Segment 2 (the “Branch Leg”), will have ten (10) fiber pairs with a total capacity of 32 Tbps.

    The system will have a total length of 10,556 kilometers and an expected useful life of 25 years.

    GU Holdings (Google) is the landing party for Monet in the U.S. The landing parties for Monet in Brazil are GU Holdings (Santos landing) and Angola Cables (Fortaleza landing). The owners have entered into a United States Landing Party Agreement, a Santos Landing Party Agreement, and a Fortaleza Landing Party Agreement. Those agreements will govern the relationship between the landing party and the other Parties at each landing point. At each landing station, individual Parties may connect their capacity to the domestic network or other international cable systems.

    There are a variety of alternative facilities on existing and proposed cable systems. The systems currently serving the U.S.-Brazil route are Americas-II, GlobeNet, South America-1 (“SAM-1”), South American Crossing, and America Movil Submarine Cable System-1 (“AMX-1”). A system called Seabras-1 also is expected to be licensed and ready for service within the next two years. Cable systems running from the U.S. to other locations in South America include Pan American (“PAN-AM”), Maya-1, ARCOS, Colombia-Florida Subsea Fiber (“CFX-1”), and Pacific Caribbean Cable System (“PCCS”), which should be ready for service this year. Thus, while Monet will substantially improve connectivity between the U.S. and South America, there are alternative facilities on the U.S.-Brazil and U.S.-South America routes.

    The Monet system has three landing stations including Boca Raton Florida (USA), Fortaleza (Brazil), and Santos (Brazil). It is a trunk & branch configuration with a 6 fiber pair system with express and wave drop capabilities.

    The cable has a turnkey supply contract with TE SubCom. There are 4 Monet Purchasers including Angola Cables, Google, Algar Telecom, and Antel. The project is being actively managed day-to-day by the Expert Group (technical and commercial procurement group). The EG reports to the Executive Council with representation and oversight from each Monet Party.

    The supply contract with TE SubCom was signed 9th August 2014 with the contract in force on 8th Oct 2014. The joint build agreement between the Monet purchasers is signed and in force. Other details include:

    Cable Landing Station activities underway at all sites
    Marine Survey is complete
    Manufacturing process according to the schedule
    Marine Installation program has commenced
    Target end of construction end of 2016
    Angola Cables operation target 2017
    Angola Cables owns two of the fiber pairs

    Angola-Brazil cable targets boosting South Africa Internet

    A new subsea cable project, led by Angola, is set to provide a flood of international Internet bandwidth to countries on the west coast of Africa, including South Africa.

    Duncan McLeod
    23 October 2016

    The South Atlantic Cable System (Sacs), coupled with the already-under-construction Monet cable – which will link São Paulo in Brazil with Miami in the US next year – promises a faster and lower latency (round-trip time) Internet route to the US.

    ...


    Angola Cables CEO António Nunes said this week that the new route will cut latency between South Africa and the US in half. Currently, traffic between the countries is routed through Europe and across cables in the North Atlantic.

    Nunes said the investment in Sacs and Monet is a crucial component of Angola’s plan to wean itself off its heavy reliance on oil revenues. The collapse in the oil price in the past 18 months has hit Angola and other oil-producing nations, including Nigeria, hard. Angola has identified digital infrastructure and services as key to this plan.

    But Nunes believes the new cable will have an impact far beyond Angola. South African telecoms operators, Internet service providers and universities are expected to use the cable system to secure fast, low-latency access to the US, home to the world’s largest base of digital content and Internet services and applications.

    ...

    https://www.techcentral.co.za/new-su...-africa/69436/



    "If you today see the demand between Africa and South America, nobody wants to build a cable,” Angola Cables CEO António Nunes told Fin24.

    “So, we decided to build the cable on our own, so that it's a sound investment."

    http://www.fin24.com/Tech/News/angol...ernet-20161024



    "Well according to my general knowledge our Fibre could manage ~150ms Latency to the United States, Instead of 300-400 with extreme instability if this MONET connection could be made. A very long cable that goes from US to Africa instead of US to Europe to Africa"

    ...

    "Basically we will still get access to the reduced latency and additional capacity of the new cable, reports say that this could drop latency to the US to around 160ms at least to the East Coast, similar to that of WACS to the UK currently. "

    ...

    "The route to Angola will more than likely be serviced by WACS already in place from what I understand. "

    ...

    Everything up to Luanda is already in place.

    I am very worried about those 75ms -95ms ping times to Luanda. It makes me wonder if there isn't a wireless component somewhere between Johannesburg and Yzerfontein or the Angolan coast and the Luanda data centre.

    Add to that latency for the first of the new cables from Luanda to Brazil.

    Then, the second cable from Brazil to Florida,

    Our average ping time to London is 145ms.

    Latency is Today’s Internet currency– Insights of seven years of AfPIF participation


    WACS





    Harald A. Summa, CEO, DE-CIX

    The Internet is a fundamental driver of growth and social development and is able to improve healthcare, education and the delivery of other critical services in a country. Internet traffic is sent to submarine cables, to European Internet exchange points like London or Frankfurt and then back, leading to high latency thereby slowing the Internet. This hinders the development of applications and local infrastructure, like Voice over IP, E-Government services, hosting and data centers.

    “When we came in as sponsors to the first AfPIF meeting several years ago, we were keen to meet the African ISP community and learn more about the African interconnection ecosystem. We have learned a lot over the years; about the existing structures, challenges and equally seen a lot of positive developments but there’s still room for improvement” Said Harald A. Summa- CEO, DE-CIX

    Some of the African countries where we have seen a lot of developments include South Africa. There is increasingly good connectivity in major cities and urban centers of countries like Kenya, Nigeria, Angola, Ghana among others. However, in most countries, especially in the rural areas latency times are not anywhere near the european average of 20 to 40 milliseconds. In Africa, latency times are often higher than 300 milliseconds, and are considered normal within and between countries. Improving latency times is a very critical step in this journey.

    Often, international content providers don’t bring their content into African countries due to difficult political or infrastructural situations and a lack of peering opportunities. There are more than 30 IXPs established all over Africa, but the majority is on a low data throughput. DE-CIX opened two Internet exchanges in Marseille and Palermo in 2015 to bring international content as close to Africa as possible. Palermo is the closest European point to Africa’s eastern coast with several submarine cables which significantly reduces latency times compared to sending traffic from London or Frankfurt.

    “Our participation in AfPIF every year is to drive the development of peering and to share our knowledge of operating Internet exchange points for more than 20 years. Africa has the huge potential of having over one billion potential Internet users and they deserve better connectivity. To drive this, we assist with consultancy projects like Angonix, the Internet exchange point located in Luanda, Angola. We train engineers locally, share our BGP and peering knowledge and show ways of growing an Internet exchange point. AfPIF is the forum we use to meet the African ISP community and talk about challenges and opportunities – for a better Internet experience in Africa” Concluded Harald A. Summa

    In order for peering to be the most efficient, it is important that the exchange of traffic is kept local. There has been some improvement over the years but it is not enough.
