Altech Technology Concepts, a subsidiary of the JSE-listed Altech Group, has signed a partnership agreement with London’s Telehouse to manage its data centres.
Telehouse is a subsidiary of Japanese telecommunications business KDDI and has offices around the world, including in Cape Town and Johannesburg.
As part of the deal, Telehouse will facilitate communication and connectivity from Technology Concept’s point-of-presence (POP) in Telehouse London to the rest of the world.
Technology Concepts will be the local provider for connectivity and managed networks in Southern Africa, with a focus on provision for international companies linking into SA. CEO Wayne de Nobrega says it “makes sense to have a partner who can manage our data centres while we focus on the network, and the products and services provided on top of that foundation”.
Earlier this year, Technology Concepts launched business- and consumer-focused capped and uncapped broadband products on the back of its multimillion-rand investment in network infrastructure. — Staff reporter, TechCentral
