Customers of Arc and Bezeq International can connect telecoms networks between Dubai, Tel Aviv and a growing number of hubs across the Middle East
Arc Solutions, a telecom infrastructure solutions provider across the region based in Dubai, has signed an agreement with Bezeq International, Israel’s leading ISP and IT solutions provider, to deploy its network in Bezeq International’s data centre in Tel Aviv. Arc and Bezeq International are creating the lowest latency route between regional hubs in datamena UAE, Global Zone Bahrain, Smarthub UAE and Israel, combining network footprints, enabling partners and customers to access a rich portfolio of destinations and services.
“Arc’s partnership with Bezeq International is a great step forward for the growing co-operation between Israel and the UAE. Our customers can now access the lowest latency routes to Europe via Israel and support users with a high quality of experience when using their applications and services,” said Mahesh Jaishankar [pictured above], CEO at Arc. “We are excited to offer this route to customers and enable them to diversify how they connect across the region. Bezeq International is a great partner, and it is great to be working with the team in Israel on this landmark initiative.”
Israel is a world leader in innovation and entrepreneurship with more start-ups per capita than any other country, making it a key market in the Middle East. As the country’s Public and Private Sector and foreign investment scale investment in infrastructure to support emerging digital technologies such as cloud, IoT, and AI, strong interconnection with regional and international networks is vital.
“There are tremendous growth opportunities for Arc and Bezeq International as we collaborate to connect digital innovation across the region. Arc shares our belief in seamless inter-regional connectivity and delivering new choice when connecting locally and across the globe,” said Ron Glav, VP Business Division & Global Alliances at Bezeq International. “The Israel–United Arab Emirates agreement has just found us ready to supply, taking advantage of Israel’s unique geographic position as a hub connecting between Europe, Asia and Africa and new Middle Eastern markets. Together, we are providing the foundation for both Bezeq International and Arc customers to extend their reach, expand their portfolio and access new opportunities in key markets across the Middle East.”
Arc is dedicated to making connectivity in the Middle East as simple as possible, with a vision of a highly interconnected Middle Eastern market that accelerates how network-centric businesses optimise, grow and innovate in cloud, content and communications.
