Internet Solutions (IS) and Etisalat have signed a bilateral partnership agreement which will extend the reach of both companies’ Multi Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) network coverage across the Middle East Region and Africa.
According to both companies, this partnership will enable both IS and Etisalat to increase the scope of their ICT offerings as well as provide better service to their clients across the region. Through a bilateral network-to-network (NNI), IS will access Etisalat’s network reach and Etisalat will in-turn be able to utilise IS’s Africa network.
“IS and Etisalat will share industry expertise and infrastructure, enabling both UAE enterprises and African clients to benefit from access to new technologies, faster and more cost effectively. Clients will be able to conduct business seamlessly with confidence of a reliable, secure and high performance network supporting them,” said Greg Montjoie, Executive for Connectivity, Internet Solutions.
Etisalat’s network has been connected to IS’s MPLS network through the use of network-to-network interface (NNI), offering its clients access to a global network through a single connectivity partner.
