Paratus enhances cross-border connectivity for Mozambique

Paratus, a provider of ICT network solutions, fibre, and satellite connectivity, has launched what it calls two game-changing cross-border fibre links enhancing connectivity for Mozambique.

Paratus says it now offers an alternative to the subsea cable norm by introducing resilience with two distinct fibre routes into South Africa.

One of the fibre links traverses Swaziland. The other follows the Kamati Poort route. By adopting this dual-route approach, Paratus says it ensures unequalled stability and resilience.

As the company explains, In the event of an unexpected cable outage, the second fibre link seamlessly takes over, allowing uninterrupted communications and data transmission. This failover mechanism guarantees businesses and individuals a safer and faster connection, eliminating the downtime and disruptions commonly associated with single-path connectivity solutions.

The company sums up the benefits of the new links as: high capacity; resilience, thanks to dual routes; diversity, which eliminates single-point failure risks; and redundancy, as the failover mechanism ensures uninterrupted service.

This news comes as Paratus celebrates its sixth anniversary as a telecommunications and connectivity solutions provider in Mozambique. Country Manager Rui Costa says: “We have been connecting businesses and offering dynamic services for six years. We have expanded and opened offices in the north. And now we have established secure, fast and redundant cross-border links with the rest of the world from Mozambique.”

Paratus and its many local subsidiaries are having a busy 2023, with fibre deals, satcoms agreements and data centre plans announced or under way in a number of sub-Saharan African countries since the start of the year.
