Sparkle, the international service arm of TIM Group and among top 10 global operators, has entered into a partnership with NetIX, the Sofia based Internet Ethernet Exchange. Through this partnership Sparkle will be offering its Seabone IP Transit service to NetIX’s members and an enriched VNAP solution to its customers.
By leveraging on its global Tier-1 IP Backbone, Sparkle will be able to attract new customers among NetIX members and to extend its VNAP customer base by reaching NetIX hub sited in Sofia where customers can peer with any other member.
Sparkle’s Virtual NAP will provide customers with a "virtual presence" in NetIX without deploying IP equipment nor implementing and managing complex proprietary international infrastructure. Outstanding performance is guaranteed with Sparkle’s state-of-the-art MPLS backbone.
