BringCom to Acquire Uganda Privately Owned Network Service Provider, Datanet
12 May 2017
BringCom Incorporated, a leading provider of connectivity solutions to developing countries, announced that it has reached a tentative agreement to acquire Datanet.Com, LLC. Established in 1999, Datanet is a network service provider operating in Uganda and Kenya 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 (MEF-SI) 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 interconnectivities/operations and LAN extensions. More recently, the company announced its access network MEF CE 2.0 E-Access certification.
Datanet brings into the East African region MEF standardized/certified access circuits and services as well as standardized 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 international global connectivity services,” said Fabrice Langreney, President and CEO of BringCom. “BringCom’s investment in the region allows us to increase our ability to competitively service the stringent requirements of customers with challenging telecommunications applications.” Datanet will be renamed BringCom Uganda once the transaction is completed.
