du has extended its existing partnership with Epsilon to offer end-to-end connectivity between the UAE and major data centres in the US, Europe and Asia.

This was announced on the sidelines of Capacity Middle East 2018, being held 6-8 March in Dubai. 

du and Epsilon will create a simple, effective and seamless ‘one stop shop’ for capacity and backhaul services, allowing cost-effective access to datamena -  an EITC entity, and the UAE Internet Exchange (UAE-IX) from global data centres. Carriers, enterprises,content and cloud providers will be able to take advantage of the Infiny by Epsilon on-demand connectivity platform, which allows click-to-connect provisioning of Ethernet speeds from 100M up to 5G.

In addition, Epsilon will also provide STM1, STM4 and STM16 capacity. As part of the agreement, Epsilon will act as the global sales channel for the partnership. 

In early 2016, Epsilon deployed its infrastructure in EITC’s datamena colocation facility enabling it to bring its services closer to its partners in the Middle East. In 2017, du partnered with Epsilon to deploy the “Infiny by Epsilon” on-demand connectivity platform to connect its enterprise customers to world-leading cloud service providers via its online portal and APIs.

“This commercial partnership seamlessly connects datamena in the UAE to all major data centres in the USA, Europe and Asia. Epsilon has over 500 Carriers connected to its network who can now manage their connectivity requirements to datamena via Epsilon’s online provisioning portal.  This will significantly reduce the current lead time to provision capacities and further enhance the customer experience in datamena,‘’ said Ananda Bose, chief wholesale and corporate affairs officer, EITC.

“We look forward to continuing to develop our relationship with Epsilon to jointly serve our customers and grow together locally, regionally and around the world”. 

“du’s colocation facility, subsea and terrestrial capacities together with Epsilon’s Infiny platform and network reach, will allow us to offer enterprises, carriers, cloud and content providers the simplest and most efficient way to connect sub 10G network services to the Middle East,” said Jerzy Szlosarek, CEO at Epsilon.

“Through a single relationship with us, and in partnership with du, customers are able to leverage our extensive network reach, local expertise, experience and relationships to gain fast and efficient connection between the USA, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.”
