Batelco deploys point-of-presence in datame

datamena, the carrier neutral data centre and connectivity platform based in the UAE and serving the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region, has announced that Bahrain’s leading integrated communications’ provider Batelco has selected datamena, to deploy a point-of-presence (PoP).

Batelco has chosen datamena because it acts as a hub where regional and international carriers are present, which makes it easy to interconnect and provide different services. The deployment will serve Batelco Bahrain and the Batelco Group.

Fahad Al Hassawi, Chief Commercial Officer, du, said: “We are delighted to welcome Batelco Bahrain into datamena. As the leading integrated communications’ provider, Batelco will provide more options for reliable services to datamena customers. On the other hand, Batelco will benefit from the ecosystem of carriers, content and cloud providers to enable new services and improve end-user experience.”

Additionally, Adel Al-Daylami, Batelco’s Chief Global Business Officer, also said: “Batelco is honoured to partner with an established platform like datamena. Our new PoP guarantees that our customers will have access to more options and an enhanced portfolio of global services, as we intend to offer services like International Private Leased Circuit (IPLC), Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) layer 2 and 3, and Ethernet over SDH (EoSDH).

Furthermore, this will also enable Batelco to further develop its portfolio of modern and innovative solutions such as cloud and managed services and other data intensive services. In line with Batelco’s expansion plans, the new PoP allows Batelco easy access by facilitating further interconnectivity with other carriers, thus extending it to Batelco’s global network.
