Angonix Forum 2016
Economy & Connectivity, Luanda/Angola

Welcome to angonix

angonix is a neutral Internet traffic exchange platform situated in Luanda, the capital of Angola, West Africa.

It interconnects global networks, network operators and content providers to keep local traffic local and offers international content providers and networks a basis for peering on the African continent. 

angonix is a carrier- and data center neutral IXP that will change the African Internet landscape. By late 2016, the South Atlantic Cable System (SACS), also known as the Angola-Brazil-Cable, will link Luanda, the capital of Angola, with Fortaleza, Brazil. It is designed to provide low latency routing between Africa and Asia in the East and the Americas in the West.

With angonix being positioned in Luanda, it is the perfect location to peer Internet traffic away.

“Data traffic is on the rise on the African continent,” says António Nunes, CEO of Angola Cables. “The Internet’s infrastructure in Africa will grow exponentially in the next few years, and to make the best of it, data have to travel shorter distances to get to users. angonix will contribute to the Internet landscape by providing an Internet Exchange Point for all kinds of networks to exchange traffic for free and be closer to the West African users.”
