UAE-IX will be connected to Mumbai and Marseille soon

UAE-IX in Dubai will be connected soon to the DE-CIX Internet Exchanges in Mumbai, India, and Marseille, France. This connection will enable remote peering between these three major hubs in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia, and is enabled by datamena’s recently launched global interconnect ecosystem, creating interconnection between major cloud and content hubs around the world. Its first digital infrastructure hubs in Mumbai and Marseille have been launched in partnership with DE-CIX.
