Dennis Kahindi 

Chief Executive Officer, Liquid Telecom

Liquid Telecom is what is classified as a Carriers’ Carrier. They, in effect, provide wholesale fibre capacity to other providers. However, they also have a huge presence for Metro Service extension and ambition to get into homes. This makes them a strong partner for Raxio Data Centre since all the customers they serve will in one way or another need access to services hosted in Raxio Data Centre. Enterprises, Carriers, ISPs, Telecommunication companies and home users will all benefit from the Liquid Telecom infrastructure to connect to services hosted at Raxio Data Centre.

A network is only as good as the content it can carry, for this we are happy to complete the puzzle with Liquid Telecom
