VueTel USA has activated a new data centre in New York to connect the two continents

VueTel, specialized in international telecommunications services, can now provide high quality and secure voices and data services, thanks to the reliable and flexible infrastructural network of NOC, Pop and hub in New Yok, London, Paris, and more than 11 African countries and 350 million internet users.

The technology infrastructure is set up to offer international Internet Transit Services (IP Transit), International dedicated lines (IPLC), devoted Ethernet circuits (EthLink) and virtual private networks (IP VPN) in addition to international voice transit services.

The USA VueTel headquarter is located in Holmdel, New Jersey, in the refurbished building that historically housed the Bell Labs, while the technology infrastructure is located in New York, in the prestigious 60 Hudson Street venue.

"With the new AfCfta agreement, the intra African market can grow up to 52% before 2022 and open a market of 1,2 billion people and a 3,4 billion dollar gross domestic product. Our focus is now to provide large companies and corporations in the USA with dedicated data services to connect them to this great opportunity”, says Emanuela Bevilacqua, Vice President of VueTel USA. “We operate in a market dominated by large carriers that have developed global network. Most of them, however, do not directly provide services to African countries. On the contrary VueTel have significant knowledge and remarkable experience in these territories where we have been physically present and active for several years."

With the activation of PoP in New York, after the main nocs of London, Paris, Marseille, Milan, and Palermo, VueTel is consolidating more and more as an international benchmark for the wholesale market providing data to the African continent.

VueTel USA is then making its way into the vast world of industry 4.0., aiming to develop advanced telecommunications services based on artificial intelligence and Machine Learning. "For VueTel, which has a history of deep technological know-how", comments Emanuela Bevilacqua, "it becomes extremely stimulating to operate in a sector among the most competitive in the United States".

Data Scenario

From 2000 to the present day, Africa has experienced a strong increase in both fixed and mobile connectivity. According to data from the Internet World states, the continent's internet users grew from around 4.5 million in 2010 to nearly 350 million in 2017. The current level of penetration is around 28%, slightly more than half of the rest of the world, but an exponential growth is expected to bring the African continent to comparable levels with the world average by 2020. According to the GSMA, by 2020 there will be more than 700 million mobile connections in Africa, more than twice the forecasts regarding North America

In addition, the data services market is constantly expanding, with significant growth rates. According to MEF's estimates, the Metro Ethernet Forum, the global Carrier Ethernet services market will reach approximately $63 billion globally in 2019.

With regard to the African countries in which the largest number of American companies are present, there are: South Africa, Egypt, Morocco, Kenya and Nigeria. The sectors in which they operate are largely: energy, technology, Food & beverage, Agriculture, oil & gas.

Voice Network

The VueTel group is present with its network in London and Paris, a geographic cluster for TDM and VoIP, and in New York with a single full VoIP node completely redundant with the European cluster.

Data Network

The backbone connects the most important connectivity centres between Europe and Africa in ring-protected mode: London, Paris, Milan and Palermo, as well as Marseille and Lisbon, strategic points of arrival for submarine cables from Africa, the Middle East and the Americas. The offer is expanded with the new New York knot.

The offer for the business market includes internet and connectivity services for the creation of dedicated networks and VPNs. The data network provides quality performance and signal latency through the use of last-generation network and access technologies, a fully redundant high-capacity backbone, and nodes that connect the main landing stations of submarine cables With fiber-optic terrestrial networks.
