EASSy is interconnecting with multiple international submarine cable networks at Mtunzini, Mombasa, Djibouti and Port Sudan via agreements with a variety of international cable operators. This enables us to take advantage of a variety of international routing options, ensuring diverse, seamless onward connectivity to Europe, the Americas, the Middle East and Asia.
In a related project, investors in the EASSy system are constructing and interconnecting terrestrial fibre backhauls to link the land-locked countries of the region to the cable. This is enabling customers to take advantage of high-speed international connectivity from a wide variety of locations across the eastern and southern half of Africa.
This comprehensive mesh of onward connectivity enables African and international telecommunications service providers to interconnect and to deliver ICT services that spur development and growth across the region.
