15 May 2017 | Jason McGee-Abe
Enter has today announced that it has expanded its reach into Sparkle Sicily Hub, a next-generation data centre in Palermo.
The launch marks the addition of a new European PoP for Enter and provides customers with enhanced connectivity from Palermo to and throughout Europe, including Frankfurt, Amsterdam, London, Paris, Madrid, Stockholm and Brussels.
“Choosing to establish our newest PoP at Sicily Hub was an easy decision, as its location and service offerings are among the best available,” says Milko Ilari, head of international business and strategy at Enter. “We’re very excited about the new opportunities this venture will bring, including the ability for customers to access DE-CIX Palermo and multiple diverse submarine cable systems for world-class connectivity.”
The PoP provides access to the lowest latency paths from Europe to Africa, Asia and the Middle East by enabling direct interconnections to carrier-neutral internet exchange (IX) DE-CIX Palermo.
As the first Italian Internet Service Provider (ISP) at this location, Enter’s presence at Sicily Hub offers consumers and businesses enhanced access to enterprise-grade internet and network services, including Ethernet access and transport to Europe, MPLS and IPSec Virtual Private Network (VPN), and demux services.
