BENEFITING: All For Africa
MCN Consulting, Co. Ltd., a Tanzanian corporation, has engaged with Terremark Worldwide, Inc. (Terremark) to cooperate in the development of the NOA project. Terremark is a leading operator of NAPs around the world. Terremark has successfully enhanced the traditional concept of a NAP by adding high-end, carrier-grade data center space and making their locations “virtual marketplaces” – vendor-neutral physical and logical points where telecommunications carriers, content providers and enterprises meet to do business among themselves.
The development of NOA will help position Tanzania to become the ICT Hub of the East Africa region. The NOA, together with the construction of new submarine cables that have provided unprecedented connectivity to Tanzanians and the construction of its National Fibre Network, are critical pieces of the ICT infrastructure of the country that will help propel Tanzania to a regional leadership position in ICT technologies.
