Ethio telecom, Huawei Launch Data Centre

May 23 , 2021


Huawei, the Chinese ICT giant, and Ethio telecom launched a Tier III Data Centre in the capital's Gola neighbourhood last week. The facility has the capacity to reach over 800 servers, and the state-owned telecom operator plans to use it to accommodate mobile money and business support systems initially and then expand to include cloud services in the future. The centre, which was deployed in two and a half months, will soon be joined by four other Tier III data centres currently under development at the Addis Abeba ICT Park. Wingu.africa, the Raxio Group, and RedFox Solutions have already broken ground on the construction of their facilities at the Park, with the latter two expected to go online by the end of this year.
