BringCom Completes Acquisition of Uganda Privately Owned Network Service Provider, Datanet


BringCom Incorporated, a leading provider of connectivity solutions to
developing countries, announced that it has completed the acquisition of
Datanet.Com, LLC in Uganda after receiving final approval from the
regulatory authority (Uganda Communications Commission). Established in
1999, Datanet is a network service provider operating in Uganda and
offering corporate network connectivity as well as secure and reliable
wholesale access services. Datanet was the first company in the East
African region to enroll in the MEF Services Interconnect program with
the aim of establishing standardized Carrier Ethernet access services
and networks. It also launched EP-LAN service over its Carrier Ethernet
network between Uganda and Kenya powering multi-branch
interconnectivity/operations and LAN extensions. More recently, the
company announced its MEF CE 2.0 E-Access certification. Datanet
provides the East African region MEF certified access circuits and
services as well as ENNI interconnections to expand further the global
reach of standardized Carrier Ethernet services. "Datanet's acquisition
reflects BringCom's strategy to expand its pan-African Carrier Ethernet
network and global connectivity services," said Fabrice Langreney,
President and CEO of BringCom. "Our team is excited to formally welcome
our new colleagues to the BringCom family." Datanet will allow BringCom
to test its next-generation SDN/NFV platform in Uganda before the
planned global rollout. BringCom's SDN/NFV platform will improve its
ability to support international carriers' connectivity within Africa
and competitively service the requirements of enterprises in the region.
