ICT solution and service provider aamra companies established network point of presence (PoP) at Interxion's data center in Marseille, France. aamra is the first Bangladeshi company to establish a PoP in Marseille. The company expanded its network to accommodate the growing demand in traffic between Bangladesh and Europe through Interxion, the European provider of carrier and cloud-neutral colocation data center services. As Marseille is a gateway between Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia, aamra ensured network presence in the city.
On January 2019, aamra established PoP within Interxion's Marseille campus to provide connectivity to a pair of submarine network systems on the city's shore. Interxion Marseille campus, the gateway to Europe has a significant connectivity legacy. It houses 140+networks, 30+ backhaul providers, 80+ International networks, 14 Submarine Cable systems, 11 CDN and Content Platforms and 4 Internet Exchanges. It has 160Tbps potential capacity connecting 43 countries around the world.
By entering West through Marseille, this network PoP will enable aamra to provide carriers, content and cloud providers with diverse connectivity choices and added network redundancy. The SEA-ME-WE 5 (Southeast Asia, Middle East, West Europe), a 24TB system will now pass the direct traffic from Asia (Bangladesh) to European networking hubs (West), including London (UK) and Amsterdam (Netherlands).
With SEA-ME-WE 5 submarine cable systems from Bangladesh landing directly in Marseille, aamra expanded the network presence. The large and growing community of network and content providers available to partner with in Marseille shall accelerate aamra’s ability to cater to the burgeoning demands of clients.
