CTG and Angola Cables have also agreed to deploy a network interconnection in South Africa, leveraging the advanced network capabilities of both companies; transmission capacity and latency between China, South Africa, Angola, and Brazil will thus be significantly improved.
According to Changhai Liu, China Telecom's managing director for Africa and the Middle East, the collaboration with Angola Cables will unlock many opportunities. “Through the current network infrastructure, and leveraging the capabilities and potential of SACS, CTG customers can enjoy the secure, cost-efficient low-latency speed of ~156 ms connecting Johannesburg to São Paulo.” ■
