Liquid Dataport is the first African company to launch a Pan-African SDN service. The new project can be scaled and developed to meet the needs of any business.
Liquid Dataport, part of Cassava Technologies, is the first African company to launch a Pan African Software-Defined-Network (SDN) service. Dataport is a client-controlled network that can be scaled and customized to suit the needs of all individual businesses.
This makes Dataport the most extensive ‘One Africa’ digital network and empowers customers to take control of their network, tailor-making it to suit all of their connectivity requirements, app usage and costs.
Liquid Dataport: Improved visibility
The improved visibility allows users to define secure network pathways and offers customers better control than most other network options. “If African businesses were to level the playing field against their counterparts in more developed economies, SDN is the answer,” says David Eurin, CEO of Liquid Dataport.
“How we work has evolved, and our customers now expect to pay for services as they consume them. The flexibility we have brought customers through this solution allows them to select and scale their network requirements according to their individual needs and only pay for what they use,” explains Eurin.
The offering will be deployed in South Africa, Kenya, Nigeria and Tanzania and the United Kingdom and France in its first phase, with more countries and Points of Presence to ensure increased coverage in the future.
Users have complete control over their operations through an efficient, easy-to-use web portal, from choosing destinations, speed and bandwidths, managing traffic demand, checking costs, and more. With Dataport, customers have complete oversight of services provisioned at their fingertips.
One of the most significant benefits of customers partnering with Liquid Dataport is that the SDN solution is deployed on its owned network. Customers can thus break away from the traditional approach of siloed networking and even take advantage of the company’s extensive fiber backbone across the continent. This underscores the business’ overall commitment to providing extensive infrastructure and building on a digitized network in Africa and beyond.
