Vodafone Qatar joins ICT ecosystem
Dubai, June 11, 2013
Vodafone Qatar, a telecommunications operator, has joined the ICT ecosystem of the UAE-based datamena.
Datamena is a carrier-neutral data centre, connectivity interchange and services platform in the Middle East region.
This marks a new phase of Vodafone Qatar’s presence in the region and the company will set up a consolidated Point of Presence at datamena, which will contribute to connecting its worldwide properties together, said a statement.
“We are excited to be welcoming Vodafone Qatar into datamena,” said Mahesh Jaishankar, vice president, datamena.
“This new presence further expands the diversity of the customer ecosystem in datamena as well as cements its position as a thriving carrier-neutral transit and content hub. We hope that datamena’s association with Vodafone will encourage other international carriers, regional operators and content players to come together to benefit from the open marketplace in the datamena Transit Zone.”
“We chose to be part of datamena’s growing carrier neutral ecosystem as this allows us to rapidly expand our footprint across the Middle East and offer our services to customers in the region, as a wholesale operator. As a host for our multiservice node, datamena’s ecosystem is perfectly befitting,” said Niraj Singh, business services director at Vodafone Qatar. - TradeArabia News Service
