$4.5 Million C&W Investment in Panama

Cable & Wireless (C&W) will set up its new data center in the Panama Pacifico Special Economic Area (AEEPP in Spanish), located in Howard.

Monday, September 6, 2010

José Quintero, C&W Executive Director of Technology, indicated that the development of the company's new data storage center will increase its capacity to supply application hosting services.

"The decision to locate this data center in the AEEPP is due to the location there of a fiber optic cable crossing Panama's "Bridge of the Americas" ("Puente de las Américas" in Spanish) that enables high speed transfer of information in both directions," Quintero told Panamá América.
