Sparkle, the international service arm of TIM Group and among top 10 global operators, announces that Zajil, a Kuwaiti based leading Information and Communications Technology Service Provider in the Middle East & North Africa, has opened a new PoP in Sparkle's Sicily Hub in Palermo.
Through the new PoP, Zajil shall be able to provide both its enterprise and wholesale customers with best performing connectivity to North Africa and Europe. At the same time Zajil's banking, finance and media customers will experience improved latency and application performances from their HQs in the Middle East and Europe.
Sparkle's open ecosystem and rich marketplace Sicily Hub, thanks to its unique location in the Mediterranean closer to North Africa and the Middle East than any other European peering point, which makes it the crossway of most international cable systems connecting Asia and the Middle East to Europe, is becoming the best choice in terms of peering point and open marketplace for many service providers operating in the MENA region wanting to expand their reach in Europe.
With its ever growing presence of multi-breed global players, Sicily Hub continues to grow by attracting new content and interconnections configuring itself as a rich marketplace where service providers, content and media players and system integrators have an opportunity to grow their business.
