Saudi Arabian fixed-line operator, Integrated Telecom Company (ITC), has signed an agreement to establish a multi-service point of presence (PoP) at Datamena, a carrier-neutral internet exchange hub in the UAE.

The PoP will allow ITC to create a network-to-network interface (NNI) with regional and international operators that also have a PoP in Datamena, including Dubai-based operator, Du. This will enable ITC to tap into tier 1 access services through Datamena.

The Saudi company said that it also intends to develop more services in partnership with Du.

Georges Jaber, VP, wholesale, business sales and solutions, ITC, 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.”

ITC, which was founded in 2005, has a 17,000 km national fibre network and datacentres throughout Saudi Arabia.
