Agile SP, a leading internet services provider headquartered in South Africa, needed to scale up its global connectivity infrastructure to service its growing customer base. They required high quality IP Transit to connect their customers in South Africa with Europe and Asia with high Quality of Service.
Single, scalable global solution
Agile SP wanted to be able to scale capacity into different markets as their business expanded, through a single global partnership.
Network reliability and resilience
Low latency and redundant network connectivity were essential for Agile SP to deliver mission-critical traffic reliably and securely.
High volumes of traffic
With a large volume of priority traffic needing transportation across the world, Agile needed to deliver 99.999% uptime. With a growing customer base, the solution also needed to seamlessly accommodate the increase in traffic volume.
The BICS IP Transit solution with direct, low-latency connections to Europe and Asia, enables Agile SP to support customers with highly reliable and scalable connectivity, transporting traffic via high-quality routes with built-in redundance and low jitter, to guarantee the delivery of its SLAs.
A single global partnership also means that Agile SP can streamline its own operations, with the added benefit of being able to scale up into other locations as needed.
