Angola Cables launches plan to expand channel partner ecosystem
Multinational ICT and connectivity solutions provider Angola Cables has launched a Sales Partnership Programme to bolster its channel partner ecosystem and offer service providers and vendors the opportunity to market a range of products and services such as IP Transit, Remote Peering, Cloud Solutions, IP Gamer and others in the rapidly expanding global ICT market.
The company references research from the Synergy Research Group which stated that last year, spending on cloud infrastructure and services surpassed the US$130-billion mark for the first time, demonstrating the potential to expand IT services and solutions across multiple markets.
Partnership arrangements are available across three categories of the Sales Partner Programme:
Referral: Individuals with high visibility and experience in the industry can recommend the company as a solution;
Sales representative: Open to individuals or companies that possess insight and knowledge of the industry, especially within the wholesale sector, and who are able to identify and convert leads into tangible business opportunities;
Reseller: Existing partners or clients with the financial and resource capacity and plans to expand their business through the product solutions and services offered by Angola Cables.
According to Angola Cables, within the programme, qualifying business partners will be responsible for managing the purchasing process and post-sale payment arrangements, while Angola Cables will manage all aspects of customer service and provides ongoing sales and technical support.
Angola Cables was established in 2009 as a wholesale carrier and has since evolved into an international telecommunications company with an advanced low-latency subsea cable network providing network and connectivity solutions to enterprises and business across the world.
The company has more than 4500 peering agreements worldwide and more than 20 Points of Presence (PoPs) in Angola, South Africa, Nigeria, Ghana, Portugal, England, Spain, France, Germany, Brazil and the USA.
It is currently ranked #35 by the Centre for Applied Internet Data Analytics (CAIDA) for internet providers.
In August 2020 the company introduced IP_Flex, a ‘pay-as-you-go’ option designed specifically for ISPs to meet the escalating demand for data and IP transit services.
Fanie Pretorius, Regional SA Director of Angola Cables said continuous connectivity to IXPs and datacentres, peering points and cloud services is critical – especially in this current period and with lockdown measures resulting in more and more enterprises and people having to work remotely.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in record statistics in terms of data traffic. This can result in congestion over certain IP transit nodes, however with IP-Flex, customers are guaranteed connections without disruptions,” said Pretorius.
