du has extended its existing partnership with Epsilon to offer end-to-end connectivity between the UAE and major data centres in the US, Europe and Asia. Customers in du’s data centre can rapidly connect to the world’s data centre and cloud hubs with on-demand connectivity.
“This commercial partnership seamlessly connects datamena in the UAE to all major data centres in the USA, Europe and Asia. Epsilon has over 500 carriers connected to its network who can now manage their connectivity requirements to datamena via Epsilon’s online provisioning portal. This will significantly reduce the current lead time to provision capacities and further enhance the customer experience in datamena,” said Ananda Bose, chief wholesale & corporate affairs officer, Emirates Integrated Telecommunications Company.
“We look forward to continuing to develop our relationship with Epsilon to jointly serve our customers and grow together locally, regionally and around the world.”
Epsilon has had a long and successful relationship with du. In early 2016, Epsilon deployed its infrastructure in EITC’s datamena colocation facility enabling it to bring its services closer to its partners in the Middle East. In 2017, du partnered with Epsilon to deploy the “Infiny by Epsilon” on-demand connectivity platform to connect its enterprise customers to world-leading cloud service providers via its online portal and APIs.
“du’s colocation facility, subsea and terrestrial capacities together with Epsilon’s Infiny platform and network reach, will allow us to offer enterprises, carriers, cloud & content providers the simplest and most efficient way to connect sub 10G network services to the Middle East,” said Jerzy Szlosarek, CEO at Epsilon.
