Orixcom, the leading provider of managed IT, cloud and international connectivity services across the Middle East and Africa and the UAE-IX Internet Exchange, powered by DE-CIX, today signed a deal to double Orixcom’s port capacity on the Dubai based UAE-IX.  

Andrew Grenville, Chief Executive Officer of Orixcom, commented: “Orixcom were one of the earliest players to connect to the UAE-IX back in 2013, and since then have been excited to see the continuous growth of the facility. This doubling of our current capacity ensures we can meet the tremendous demand we’re seeing from our customers for improved IP network resilience and routing efficiency. The net result of all this is a marked increase in the Internet end-user experience around the Middle East region.”  

Ivo Ivanov, Chief Strategy and Business Development Officer at DE-CIX said: “We’re delighted to work with companies like Orixcom, who understand the value UAE-IX brings to the region. Orixcom’s knowledge of the complexities of the Middle East market is unparalleled and is hugely beneficial in helping customers achieve optimal business results. UAE-IX as the data center and carrier-neutral IX for the Middle East drastically reduces latency in the region. The exchange will be upgraded soon to the world’s leading DE-CIX Apollon platform, enabling 100 GE technology, and we look forward to growing further with our customers.”
