Rome, July 2, 2013 – TI Sparkle, the International Services arm of Telecom Italia Group, has expanded its high speed access capabilities to its Seabone IP Transit and Lan2Lan services with two new POPs located respectively in London Telecity 2 and in Amsterdam Equinix.
The latter represents a new addition to TI Sparkle’s presence in European Telehouses for the delivery of SDH and Ethernet services, especially EoSDH (Ethernet over SDH).
TI Sparkle’s two new points of presence will provide customers with a more cost efficient access to Sparkle’s Global IP Transit backbone Seabone.
Seabone is TI Sparkle Tier1 fully IPv6 enabled global IP Transit backbone that ranks among top 10 worldwide, #3 in Europe and 1# in the Mediterranean. While consolidating its global role, Seabone is strengthening its regional positioning in Africa and Latin America where it ranks #2, as well as in Asia where it has reached position #3.
With Sparkle Lan2Lan customers can extend Ethernet technology from a local environment to anywhere in the world using Sparkle IP backbone as a transport layer. Ethernet over MPLS transport enables point-to-point and point-to-multipoint connections throughout the extensive Seabone footprint. The point-to-multipoint option allows one single port to connect to multiple locations thereby optimizing traffic and infrastructure, and further reducing the total cost of ownership.
