UAE New Data Hub Offers IP Transit within Variety of Services
Recently, the United Arab Emirates looked to play host to a new content hub free of constraints at the carrier level that looked to provide a robust, secure ecosystem for the Middle East's various carriers, content providers and service providers. Dubbed the Datamena, it represents a powerful new tool in telecom provider Du's arsenal.
The Datamena system looks to provide a variety of useful services, from bandwidth and colocation services to IP transit and high-quality connections featuring top-notch reliability and much lower latency figures than many other connections. With a better infrastructure in place, it can provide a growth medium for digital businesses, both in the UAE and beyond into the larger Gulf region.
This isn't the first such effort from Datamena, however, as it’s also hosted the UAE Internet Exchange, a connection medium for content providers and network operators both regional and global alike, a recently launched service managed by DE-CIX (News - Alert) of Germany, the world's largest operator of Internet exchanges.
Osman Sultan, the CEO of Du, described the Datamena service as offering a way to not only simplify but also improve connections for both consumers and businesses alike. As more people, and more businesses, take advantage of the variety of offerings in terms of products offered online, better connections in turn are required to manage the influx of users. Sultan further said, “We help clients to expand from a location where some of the fastest-growing markets in the world intersect. The introduction of Datamena extends the UAE’s position as the region’s primary centre for people, logistics, finance and trading, to the digital space.”
Improving connection quality is a priority for most Internet users, whether they're normal consumers or businesses. The potential for profit, as well as the ability to get better access to goods and services, is plenty of impetus for users to crave a better connection. While the ability to provide that better connection is somewhat limited, there will likely be no shortage of interested users to take advantage of improved connections as they become available. Measures to improve connectivity, like those undertaken by Du, should prove well-received at the user level.
