The partnership with a supplier like Orange strengthens this offer. Our customers are the real winners of this partnership.

Orange is a global telecommunications player offering extensive submarine, terrestrial and satellite connectivity with 450,000 km of submarine cables, 45,000 km of fiber across Europe, the United States, Africa and Asia, and more than 450 points of presence. In West Africa, Orange is very present in many countries including Côte d’Ivoire, Senegal, Mali, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Guinea and Liberia. Djoliba is the region’s first unified very high-speed network that offers seamless connectivity with improved availability through network redundancy, security and excellent quality of service.

Djoliba is also the first network to offer total security in West Africa with more than 10,000 km of terrestrial optical fiber network, coupled with 10,000 km of submarine cables, a very high speed supply (up to 100 Gbit / s) and an availability rate of 99.99%. This network covers 16 points of presence with a network of nearly 155 technical sites and offers connections with Europe, America and Asia.

Liquid’s “One Africa” network has 100,000 km of fiber backbone and covers most of sub-Saharan Africa. The network’s development plans include extending the organization’s reach to North African countries such as Morocco, Libya, Tunisia and Algeria. “We already have access to Egypt and Morocco, but now we want to close the loop, ensuring that the entire continent has access to high-speed fiber optic connectivity,” Eurin said. “Our association with a supplier like Orange strengthens the offer and supports the commercial requirements of our growing continent. We see this partnership as a real change for Africa. “
“The cybersecurity threat landscape has grown dramatically over the past year, which is true globally, and the African continent is no exception,” commented Rochas. In addition to providing extensive and reliable connectivity, Liquid’s customers will also benefit from access to Orange’s cutting-edge cybersecurity solutions, as the two organizations work in tandem to manage risk to build a more secure digital society.

Orange’s networks have been the backbone of its success in the region for more than 20 years and this partnership will strengthen its capacity to make digital services more accessible as well as its contribution to the development of the continent as a whole.
