AtlasEdgeWhat we do

What we do and why we do it

With our expanding reach of more than 100 sites across the continent, we’re disrupting the industry by bringing seamless, localised and ultra-low latency digital infrastructure to our customers.

Our facilities are physically located on the ‘edge’ of the network in the countries we serve – and providing proximity to this core network is critical for the technology of tomorrow.

We believe the edge is where the next wave of innovation happens, where we push boundaries and challenge convention. From the imminent rise of 5G to autonomous vehicles, to smart cities or virtual healthcare, we’re going to be there making it happen – in the most sustainable way possible.

Join us and advance to the Edge.
