New PoP Provides Enhanced Connectivity to and Throughout Major European Cities as Well as Interconnection to DE-CIX Palermo
Milan, Italy – May 15, 2017 – Enter, a leader in network and cloud services based in Italy, today announces it has expanded its reach into Sparkle Sicily Hub, a next-generation data center in Palermo. The launch marks the addition of a new European Point of Presence (PoP) for Enter and provides customers with enhanced connectivity from Palermo to and throughout Europe, including Frankfurt, Amsterdam, London, Paris, Madrid, Stockholm and Brussels. Furthermore, the PoP provides access to the lowest latency paths from Europe to Africa, Asia and the Middle East by enabling direct interconnections to 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. Customers at Enter’s Palermo location can also access Enter Cloud Suite (ECS), the first European, OpenStack-based cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution. The new PoP expands Enter’s reach in Italy as well as into Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Enter’s new Italian PoP also offers services to its neutral interconnection facility in Milan Caldera, a highly connected alternative to businesses looking to co-locate in Marseilles.
“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 & 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.”
Sparkle Sicily Hub is the leading IP gravity center in the Mediterranean region, as its unique location is positioned closer to North Africa, the Mediterranean and the Middle East than any other European peering point. It is also connected to all cable landing stations in Sicily, enabling cost-effective and high-quality connectivity services for customers.
Enter’s new PoP also enables customers to interconnect with carrier-neutral Internet Exchange, DE-CIX Palermo, delivering reduced IP Transit and network costs and improved control over routing and IP traffic flow as well as access to a growing list of networks and in-demand content providers. In addition, increased network quality allows users to effectively deliver bandwidth-intensive content for an enhanced data experience.
