GBI, a service provider that owns and operates a multilayer carrier neutral network connecting the world to the Middle East, has joined the Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX). As part of this, GBI has become an official reseller of AMS-IX.
On the occasion of the agreement, Amr Eid, Chief Commercial Officer of GBI, said: “Joining the AMS-IX Partner Program allows us to provide more enhanced capabilities to our customers in the Middle East region who are seeking efficient interconnectivity options and better network infrastructure expansion.’’
Mark Cooper, CCO of AMS-IX said: “We are very happy that one of the largest network operators in the Middle East has joined our Partner Program.” Cooper added: “With their large and robust network that connects Europe with most of the Middle East, GBI can offer its customers high-quality access to AMS-IX and at the same time help us to increase the diversity and size of our ecosystem.”
