Zajil Telecom, a Kuwait-based ISP and MPLS service provider, plans to expand its MPLS network with additional points of presence (POPs) in the MENA region and to further develop its managed services portfolio.
“Zajil has made major investments on establishing and upgrading the network infrastructure and developing human resources. Zajil has now network coverage of 40+ PoPs worldwide, with majority of them within the Middle East & North Africa, and we continue to invest in the expansion of Zajil network coverage in the region and beyond to meet the requirements of our customers,” said Khalifa Al-Soulah, managing director and CEO, Zajil Telecom.
Zajil is one of four consortium members behind the Middle East Europe Terrestrial Cable System (MEETS), a land-based transmission cable system linking the Middle East and Europe, and will manage the landing stations in Kuwait and Bahrain, along with telecom operator, Zain.
Last year, Zajil also established a second data centre in Kuwait and expanded its regional data centre footprint. It also expanded its cloud services portfolio in Saudi Arabia.
