Saudi ITC sets up multi-service PoP in datamena
Dubai, July 1, 2013
Saudi-based telecom service provider Integrated Telecom Company (ITC) and UAE-based datamena, a carrier-neutral data centre, have signed a deal to set up a multi-service Point of Presence (PoP) in datamena’s centre in Dubai.
The PoP will include many Tier 1 IP transit, carriers and content players. It will allow ITC to create a Network-to-Network Interface (NNI) with regional and international service providers which have a PoP presence in datamena, including du, said a statement.
This will also allow ITC to tap into Tier 1 access services through the datamena hub and it aims to develop more services together with du, it said.
Georges Jaber, vice president, said: “Interconnecting with major regional providers is a key step to growth and an important part of our commitment to provide superior connectivity solutions for enterprise connectivity projects with more capacity for global expansion; Carrier Neutral hubs such as datamena are a core enabler for us to meet this commitment.” – TradeArabia News Service
