Liquid Telecom has introduced a new technology that will help in transmission of technology called Dense Wavelength Division Mutliplexing (DWDM).

According to the company this new technology will enhance internet connectivity as it can carry multiple 10Gbits/s wavelengths and can scale to support many more.

“The high-speed technology goes across the borders into South Africa through Johannesburg to link two Data Centres (Teraco and Neotel). These two data centres are in turn linked to five undersea cables, namely SEACOM, WACS, EASSY, SAT 3 and TEAMS,” he said.

Mr Makamure said this development comes at a time when bandwidth requirements are increasing for both business and homes. “Liquid Telecom has prepared itself to handle huge increases in bandwidth demand for the business and enterprise market as well for the home market,” he added.

Liquid managing director Mr Wellington Makamure said the latest technology will provide both Zimbabwe and Zambia market high capacity access to undersea cables that link Southern Africa to the rest of the world.
