Saudi Telecom Company (STC) and LINX have announced that Limelight has provided a Letter of Intent (LoI) that will take the first 100GE port on JEDIX.

JEDIX, the KSA Internet Exchange powered by LINX, is situated in Jeddah. The agreement, which is subject to finalising a commercial agreement, will also see Limelight deploy its first KSA node in STC’s datacentre MG1 (MENA Gateway) as part of forming a new partnership with STC.

“With the creation of JEDIX we believe this will help increase the flow of internet traffic within the KSA and the surrounding region. Therefore a new CDN PoP will help improve the delivery of Internet content,” said Limelight.

STC and LINX stated that they are very much looking forward to working with Limelight in support of their new node and the betterment of the KSA internet experience.
