Teraco Boosts Regional Interconnection With MÉTISS Cable

MÉTISS

Teraco, Africa’s largest and most interconnected data centre operator, has become an integral node to the Meltingpot Indianoceanic Submarine System (MÉTISS)

MÉTISS is a 3,200 km subsea fibre optic cable system connecting South Africa to the Indian Ocean islands of Madagascar, Reunion and Mauritius. The MÉTISS consortium comprises Canal+ Télécom, CEB Fibernet, Emtel, Zeop and SRR (SFR) Telma. The MÉTISS cable lands in Amanzimtoti and is backhauled by Liquid Telecoms to Teraco’s data centre in Durban (DB1).

With MÉTISS consortium members having infrastructure in both the Teraco Durban (DB1) and Johannesburg (JB1)data centre facilities, the Indian Ocean Islands have direct access to Teraco’s ecosystem of over 300 networks, 130 IT service providers, 50 global content providers, and the key global cloud providers says Michele McCann, Head of Interconnection and Peering at Teraco. The availability of a new cable servicing the Indian Ocean Islands region widens the addressable market for content and cloud providers in South Africa. It adds new resilience to the existing telecommunications infrastructure.

MÉTISS provides global telecoms organisations, multinationals and enterprises with interests in the region with the reliable services and capacities to empower their digital strategies.

Situated on Durban’s north coast, Teraco DB1 is a strategic interconnection hub on the African subsea cable map with access to MÉTISS and the cable systems of Seacom and EASSy that are already accessible from the facility. Teraco’s DB1 facility is connected to the JB1 Campus in Isando, Johannesburg through a wide choice of carriers, via diverse regional fibre routes. It will allow clients to increase the number of partners they connect with and expand their reach into new markets. Teraco’s DB1 facility offers clients secure colocation and interconnection services, as well as the ability to leverage Teraco’s digital hubs in DB1 and JB1 directly.

“The cable brings connectivity across regions that were previously hard to reach. Through Teraco, access to this cable is an interconnect away and in keeping with our tagline, ‘the world connects here’, we are very proud to play such a pivotal role in the success of this cable system,” says McCann. Peering at Africa’s largest Internet exchange, NAPAfrica, is now also possible for the island region and brings many benefits: reduced latency; network fault tolerance; reliable exchange of traffic; increased routing control; and improved network performance.

Interconnection and peering successfully addresses a growing need for more bandwidth but at the lowest possible latency. This also needs to be done cost-effectively. The MÉTISS cable system will enable further interconnection within the Indian Ocean Islands region and the growth of its digital economy. Teraco makes it easy and accessible for everyone to connect within the data centre and immediately benefit.

As the first provider of highly resilient, vendor-neutral data environments in sub-Saharan Africa, Teraco brings global content closer to the digital edge.

We are excited to announce that the European Union co-funded UNDPCEDRO 5 project, is taking an additional step to support Lebanon’s Clean Energy Transition, by joining forces with Nucleus Ventures in their upcoming program, the Energy Innovation Hub.

The programme offers startups and SMEs access to funding to elevate ideas off the ground, access to new markets, buyers, and business partners, as well as skills and knowledge development through the program’s intense activities and entrepreneurial education.

Throughout their journey, Energy Innovation Hub entrepreneurs will be accompanied by mentors and industry experts for coaching. As well as local and international partners to support their global scaling efforts towards regional and global markets, and most importantly potential clients to validate their innovative ideas and solutions.

By the end of the acceleration program, five start-up teams will be selected and awarded grants to further develop their innovative solutions. These companies, along with other start-ups joining the program, are expected to contribute to the overall use and adoption of Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency technologies in Lebanon, eventually boosting job creation in the sector.

A Clean Energy Transition

As part of the European Union (EU) support of innovation and entrepreneurship in Lebanon’s clean energy transition, the Energy Innovation Hub will be paving the way for:

  • Alleviating the financial and the economic burden of the current energy system on the various sectors and sub-sectors of Lebanon
  • Facilitating access to financing

  • The programme is part of the UNDP CEDRO 5 Project and is co-funded by the European Union. The CEDRO 5 project is implemented in partnership with the Association of Lebanese Industrialists (ALI), The Lebanon Green Building Council (LGBC), and the International Renewable Energy Certificates (I-REC) Institution.

Additionally, Nucleus Ventures is partnering with the Lebanese American University (LAU) and Ovation to implement the Energy Innovation Hub programme:

  • The Lebanese American University (LAU) will support the program teams in all areas related to research, development of cutting-edge technologies, and a simulation sandbox of the identified solutions.
