Gulf Bridge International (GBI) and Equinix are building on their longstanding relationship by expanding collaboration and establishing a new deployment for GBI at the Equinix data centre in Oman.

Since 2015, GBI has benefitted greatly from connections in key European Equinix data centre locations in both Amsterdam and Frankfurt and so GBI’s new presence at Equinix MC1 International Business Exchange (IBX) in Muscat will build on this success.

Equinix MC1 IBX is a carrier-neutral hub in Oman and one of the largest in the region. It serves as a regional interconnection hub providing ultra-low latency connection points between key global business markets.

GBI IP Transit already covers the entire Gulf Corporation Council (GCC). GBI’s Cloud Connect offering provides a fully protected premium to GCC and can support network topology seamlessly.

Brendan Press, CCO of GBI, said: “Recent Equinix research shows almost two thirds (60%) of digital leaders in the UAE have accelerated their Digital Transformation plans. It’s important to be building on our relationship so we can offer customers the lowest latency access to secure cloud services in the region.”

Cengiz Oztelcan, CEO of GBI, added: “Together we are fully committed to serving our Gulf and Middle Eastern customers and the MC1 data centre will help the region thrive. We are entering a highly exciting era of connectivity and it’s amazing to be at the forefront of this.”
