Paris-based technology solutions and multimedia content provider Summview has announced it will host its services in Rack Centre, the Nigeria-based, carrier neutral Tier III Constructed Facility Certified datacentre centre offering colocation, content distribution, interconnect and cloud services.

Summview has deployed a multi-service digital platform and two hubs, one in Europe and another one in Africa.

The company says this infrastructure enables the acquisition and routing of TV, radio channels and channels packages. Additionally, leveraging on its hub in Africa, Summview also proposes Virtual Private Services (VPS).

Denis Pagnac, Managing Director and CEO of Summview said, “Summview has great plans for expanding its product portfolio and adding additional value onto services it provides for our existing and new clients, in particular enabling the acquisition and routing of TV, radio channels and channels packages from Africa to the rest of the world and vice-versa.”

“We chose Rack Centre to expand our business in Africa since we needed a company that matches our levels of customer service and understands the need for reliability. We investigated the market and Rack Centre has proven superior customer service and commitment to excellence.”

Dr Ayotunde Coker, Managing Director of Rack Centre says “We will be providing Summview Tier III Constructed Facility Certified quality with a direct connection to the Internet Exchange Point of Nigeria, over 35 of the major carriers and ISPs and all five undersea cables serving the South Atlantic coast of Africa. With every country on the Atlantic coast of Africa directly connected we offer Summview and its customers' unequalled low latency connectivity and performance in the region."

In early May 2020, ITWeb Africa reported that according to the latest market report released by the African Data Centre Association (ADCA), in conjunction with Xalam Analytics, with more datacentre facilities opening across Africa, colocation and local hosting is expected to double by the end of 2020.

An excerpt from the report reads: “The expansion of global content, network and cloud providers into Africa has been another catalyst of demand for datacentres. Global providers are leveraging local facilities to bring their content and services closer to the African customer.”
