Integrated networking solutions provider, Arc Solutions signed an agreement with on-demand connectivity, data centre and cloud provider in APAC, DCConnect, to radically simplify how users around the globe connect across the Middle East. With this agreement, Arc joins DCConnect’s ecosystem of more than 1,000 points of presence (PoPs) globally and will present its services via DCConnect’s global platform.
This integration between both companies will create a seamless connectivity across their territory. DCConnect can now expand its reach in the Middle East through Arc’s terrestrial and low latency network, and integrate Arc’s services into its platform for full end-toend automated service delivery. DCConnect offers two-way inter-carrier software-defined network (SDN) orchestration through API integration and a data centre interconnection (DCI) marketplace.
“It is exciting to see connectivity to key digital hubs in the Middle East offered on-demand to users across the globe. Together with DCConnect, we’re making it simple, efficient and fast to connect across the region and roll out applications and services. We share a vision for friction-free connectivity delivered via the web or API with no barriers between networks. DCConnect’s orchestration capabilities mean that users can build the networks they need with a model that puts them in control of their services,” said Mahesh Jaishankar, CEO at Arc. “We are looking forward to working together and delivering world-class networking for customers around the world.”
With this partnership Arc’s customers can access over 1,000 data centres and major public cloud players across Europe, North America and APAC.
“There’s a tremendous opportunity in offering simplified access to key hubs across the Middle East. For example, an enterprise in Singapore can now rapidly turn up services and roll out applications across digital hubs in the Middle East with a simple but powerful networking model. Our partnership with Arc enables more organisations to experience our platform and see how simple it can be to connect and grow across the globe. This is a win-win for both of our businesses, and I look forward to growing together with Arc,” said Henry Lam, CEO at DCConnect.
By combining both companies’ expertise, network capabilities and visions, Arc and DCConnect are jointly developing further innovative solutions for customers in the Middle East and beyond. Arc and DCConnect customers can now benefit from wider coverage, faster speed to market, higher cost-efficiencies and rapid provisioning from a single provider.
