For delivering its services inside Egypt, Microsoft will use its latent network optimization while its network investment will boost capacity.
The newly upgraded network connectivity in the country will integrate the tech behemoth’s global network to transatlantic and trans-Arabian paths.
Apart from that, the new development will speed up connectivity in the North African region and also help to enhance connectivity to the new Microsoft cloud regions in the UAE and South Africa.
The global network of Telecom Egypt was created with the help of investments that were carried out in private international submarine cable systems and consortiums. The company has become a choice for content partners because of its reach and capacity in the international platform.
The country’s ideal geographic location across the sea has helped the company to connect over 11 cable systems from the east and 13 from the west.
