IX Reach announced its network expansion into East Africa in partnership with the Djibouti Data Centre (DDC), which has been selected as the strategic hub for IX Reach’s African expansion owing to its position as the only Tier 3 carrier-neutral ecosystem in east Africa with direct access to all major international and regional cable systems connecting Africa to Europe, Middle East and Asian markets.
DDC tenants will be able to connect directly onto IX Reach’s global network, giving access via a single port to over 50 internet exchanges and direct connect into the industry’s leading cloud service providers.
Given the geographical importance of Djibouti, IX Reach will also be able to address markets in other African countries, improving global connectivity and reach. The expansion to a new continent is part of IX Reach’s global ambitions and increased investment into its network and services.
