MDXi, a subsidiary of MainOne Company, continues to consolidate its position as the leading Data Centre Business across West Africa with the launch of its recent Data Centre in Appolonia City, Ghana.
In an environment where there is still a dearth of infrastructure, the company has used its affiliation with the MainOne Group, with presence in multiple countries and access to all major operators across the region to deliver the best-connected content hubs in West Africa.
Starting from its entry into the market in 2010 with the deployment of its $240 million, 7,000 kilometer submarine cable from Portugal to Nigeria, MainOne’s arrival has driven the growth of broadband access in the region.
Having attained a leadership position as West Africa’s carrier-of-carriers, the company’s investments in Connectivity, Cloud and Data Centre infrastructure continues to grow with presence in over 10 countries, including Nigeria, Ghana, Cote d’Ivoire, Togo, Benin, Senegal, Burkina Faso, Chad, Niger, and Cameroun.
The company, through her Data Centre subsidiary MDXi, a pioneer in West Africa’s Data Centre and Cloud hosting market, is providing businesses in the sub-region with world-class Data Centre services in Tier III Data Centers in Nigeria, Ghana & Cote D’Ivoire.
These infrastructural investments have led to the development of an interconnected ecosystem of Internet Exchanges, Content Providers and Network Operators across the entire region.
In Ghana, the company already operates a network connected to all the major operators, ISPs, and the Ghana Internet Exchange (GIX) where MainOne has been a member for over five years, but the addition of the Appolonia Data Center facility in Ghana was the missing piece to the puzzle.
This new Data Centre right from the onset is already interconnected via dual fiber providers on dual fiber routes through MainOne’s network to all West African regional operators.
Francophone West Africa is not left out as MainOne’s fully operational Data Center in Cote d’Ivoire is accelerating the building of the MainOne interconnected ecosystem, delivering wholesale capacity and Data Center services to institutions, Mobile Network Operators, major enterprises in the country and neighbouring, land locked countries such as Burkina Faso.
The company is not going it alone as MainOne continues to partner with leading global tech players to enrich West Africa’s tech ecosystem and as a leading player in the region, the company is also driving the conversation in international fora on recent developments in the West African Data Center market.
According to the World Bank Group, less than a third of the population has access to broadband connectivity and it will require an investment of $100 billion to achieve universal, affordable and good quality Internet access by 2030.
It is no wonder that MainOne continues to invest significantly in bringing the benefits of digital transformation to the region as witnessed with the recent investment in the Appolonia Data Center.
