Interoute introduces new Marseille PoP and SDN carrier services at ITW
May 2017 by Marc Jacob
Interoute has opened another Point of Presence (PoP) in Marseille, in InterXion MRS2. Interoute has had a presence in Marseille for over 15 years with its own DC, as well as InterXion MRS1 and the Jaguar DC. Combining this new PoP in the region with the recently activated Open Hub Med (OHM) and Sicily Hub data centres in Palermo, Sicily, allows Interoute to connect digital traffic from Africa, Asia and the Middle East to Europe from the new Subsea systems landing there.
In addition to the new PoP, Interoute will enable users to make quick and easy network changes that provide greater network flexibility. Interoute will offer SDN carrier services, including instant SD-WAN capabilities that allow organisations to manage applications and data locally. Through this new service, users can optimise network performance, minimise latency and improve time to market.
As the owner operator of one of Europe’s largest networks Interoute can provide increased network availability and a range of comprehensive commercial offerings for customers. Interoute directly connects 126 cities in 29 countries. It also has extensive network partner agreements and connectivity to additional 206 third-party data centres, to support customers across the globe.
