Our interconnected future

Our first data center, the award-winning Djibouti Data Centre (DDC), was established in 2012. Since then, we have expanded into strategic, neighboring countries to create a network of open access and carrier-neutral landing options for new cable projects.

wingu’s coastal sites in Somaliland, Tanzania and Djibouti have cable landing facilities that provide interconnected, carrier-neutral data centers and cable landing stations. This enables regional operators to have better access at lower costs, driving increased data volumes and improved end-user experience. IX platforms in our regional IX fabric are interconnected, providing access to our unique ecosystem of content and services.

Our data centers are specifically designed to be interconnected using several cable suppliers, allowing our customer’s redundant access to the entire region and any of our existing customers from any of our facilities. Located in the regional cable hub, wingu Djibouti boasts the most connected data center in East Africa, with access to 11 cable systems and a well-established blue-chip ecosystem of customers. wingu’s operations have been enhanced by an additional data center, sited at Djibouti’s new carrier-neutral landing station.
