Staying Ahead of the Curve - Teleport Infrastructure Investment

"This is a big deal... perhaps one of the most important questions to pose to your colocation provider surrounds whether or not their infrastructure investment is sufficient to handle the rapid and exponential growth in big data requirements." Blake Mclane - President of Emerging Markets Communications.

As the first carrier neutral earth station in Africa, the Teraco Teleport in Isando, Johannesburg further enhances Teraco's open market offering. Service providers can colocate their antennae equipment in a highly connected, well secured environment with resilient power.
