By Telecom Lead Team: ZOL, an ISP
in Zimbabwe, has deployed DiViNetworks’ new DiViCloud service to tackle
the growing bandwidth demand.
DiViCloud is providing bandwidth capacity from the cloud by
placing a server in ZOL’s premises, on top of ZOL’s existing physical
With the help of DiViCloud service, ZOL got bandwidth
from Paris and London, which is being virtually delivered
in Harare, Zimbabwe.
The ability to virtually connect ZOL directly
to Paris and London, without anyone investing in laying cables,
enables ZOL to gain data capacity at an affordable price.
“Africa is at a tipping point, and broadband is
fueling our growth, yet the high cost of delivering bandwidth from major
European hubs into Africa is a major obstacle in broadband
proliferation. DiViNetworks’ innovative service is oxygen to ISPs
in Africa, truly changing paradigms, and enabling us to broaden our
services. DiViNetworks not only reduces our cost of delivery, but also
improves our customer experience when downloading large files and streaming
video,” said David Behr, ZOL’s CEO.
DiViCloud is the first ever virtual capacity
service. DiViCloud teleports capacity from mega Internet
junctions to any place on the globe, without need for physical transport,
merely by placing a device in the ISP’s premises.
“We are very proud having ZOL among the first customers
of DiViCloud. DiViCloud targets any ISP worldwide, in need for expanding
bandwidth at affordable prices. We guarantee serving data capacity at half the
market price,” said Dr. Yair Shapira, DiViNetworks’ VP Marketing
and Business Development.
Last year, Sercomtel, a Brazilian telecommunications company, commercially deployed
DiViNetworks’ IP traffic optimization solution – DiViLink – to its link between
Sao Paulo and Londrina.
