OADC’s newly-appointed CEO, Ayotunde Coker shares his vision for Africa’s future and the role OADC will play in the continent’s transformation

Late 2021 saw WIOCC - the leading player in the deployment of carrier-scale, future-proofed network infrastructure into Africa - announce US$200mn in funding to launch a new pan-African data centre network operator, Open Access Data Centres (OADC). 

Along with this announcement, OADC revealed its plans to invest US$500mn over the next five years. 

Just over six months later, OADC’s newly-appointed CEO, Ayotunde Coker, shares his plans to drive further development of Africa’s data centre and digital ecosytems.

Coker was appointed to guide and lead the OADC initiatives that will play a major role in accelerating Africa’s digital transformation, through construction and operation of a pan-African network of Tier III-certified data centre facilities. The organisation is also rolling out its unique core-to-edge open-access data centre ecosystem, comprising a combination of hyperscale, regional and OADC edge data centres.
