MENA-based integrated networking services provider Arc Solutions has expanded its network footprint to Oman with a presence in Equinix’s International Business Exchange(IBX) data center in Muscat.
Arc said the move demonstrates how it is utilising the growing opportunities in partnering with like-minded service providers to develop a gateway to the region’s evolving ecosystem, simplifying access to service providers and partners across the Middle East.
Equinix’s Muscat IBX data centre (MC1) and Internet Exchange are strategically located connecting Asia, Africa, and Europe. This confluence of cable systems with carrier-neutral colocation, interconnection, and peering has accelerated the growth of digital corridors linked with Oman between 2016-2020.
“Working with partners in the Middle East is the foundation of our ability to deliver leading ICT solutions across the region and beyond. We are excited to be working closely with the Equinix team to enable accelerated innovation in the Middle East,” said Mahesh Jaishankar, CEO at Arc.
Kamel Al-Tawil, Managing Director, Middle East , and North Africa, Equinix said: “Arc joins a growing list of Network, Cloud and Content service providers that are choosing Oman as they expand and unlock opportunities in the Middle East region, increasing their digital presence and interconnecting with important locations, cloud services, and data that matter most to their businesses”
