FastIraq Selects Epsilon for Last Mile Connectivity

An Iraqi network operator is now providing international connectivity and local access to enterprise locations globally via Epsilon’s global telecoms network exchange. FastIraq is using the exchange to extend its network reach to new destinations, as well as leveraging interconnects with more than 450 pre-connected carriers.

By outsourcing both last mile access through the Enterprise Connect solution as well as connectivity to and between major datacentre hubs, FastIraq is simplifying its international capacity procurement processes and streamlining access to last mile connectivity. This removes the need for the operator to secure its own agreements with multiple network operators, and has the added flexibility and capability to extend its network to more than 170 countries where Epsilon has local agreements in place.  

“Iraq has seen rapid development in its telecommunications sector. Between 2010 and 2012, there has been exponential growth in Internet users and our work with FastIraq is helping to feed this demand,” says Irwin Fouwels, Chief Commercial Officer at Epsilon Telecommunications.

FastIraq’s international gateway will function as an extension of the Epsilon network in Iraq. The operator has the ability to provide local access termination for Epsilon within a notoriously hard to reach country, opening up the local market to those utilising the exchange.

“It is an exciting time for development in Iraq with oil and gas, and government sectors requiring robust telecoms infrastructure both locally and globally and in working with Epsilon we can deliver the services they need,” says Timothy Moore, CEO at FastIraq.
