Zain Group increases capacity at DE-CIX and UAE-IX

02 March 2016 |


Zain Group has increased capacity at DE-CIX’s internet exchanges in Frankfurt, German, and Dubai, UAE.

The move is said to support growing demand for internet traffic across the Middle East.

Zain first joined DE-CIX in March 2013, and also uses the internet exchanges to connect to additional networks.   

“The massive data growth projections for the Middle East have prompted a rethink of the industry’s business model, with Zain focussed on ensuring Internet traffic is transported and managed across a reliable, diverse and secure network,” said Henri Kassab, MD of international wholesale and roaming at Zain Group. 

“That is why DE-CIX and UAE-IX are key elements to our strategy in providing greater value and a better internet experience to our partners and the whole value chain.”
