TI Sparkle has announced that Reliance Communications’ subsidiary, Global Cloud Xchange (GCX), has expanded its reach into its Sicily Hub with a multi-service PoP.

The GCX PoP will enhance networks efficiency through a rich ecosystem and market place of multi-breed interconnected global players. It will boost coverage and increased diversity options to support the customer’s business growth in the region.

“Global Cloud Xchange latest presence in our Sicily Hub with a multi-service PoP confirms how relevant Palermo is becoming as the Hub of choice for any global player active in the Mediterranean, Africa and the Middle East”, said Alessandro Talotta, chairman and CEO of TI Sparkle.

Bill Barney, Reliance Communications and GCX CEO, added that the new Palermo PoP complements its existing capabilities in the region, while further enhancing our ability to meet the growing demand for high performance, low latency connectivity across Africa, the Mediterranean and the emerging markets.

TI Sparkle’s next generation data centre and open ecosystem Sicily Hub continues to add global players to its ranks and is attracting new eyeballs, content and interconnections to international infrastructure and a complete service marketplace.

The Sicily Hub is presently served by its tier 1-grade global IP transit service Seabone.
