GTT and GBI expand network connectivity across Middle East to boost regional economic growth

Thursday, 12 May 2016 08:24

GTT Communications and GBI jointly announced that they have formed a strategic relationship to provide enhanced services and connectivity in the Middle East.

As part of the agreement, GTT will be adding new points of presence (PoPs) in the Middle East, starting with the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Qatar. Through this deployment, clients will be able to leverage GTT's global network while gaining access to GBI's extensive reach across the Middle East. The agreement will also provide GBI with connectivity to the United States and Europe.

"We are very pleased to partner with GBI on this initiative," said Rick Calder, president and chief executive officer of GTT. "Our clients include some of the largest enterprises in the world. The launch of these new PoPs will enable us to extend our network reach in the Middle East, furthering our goal of connecting our clients to any location in the world and any application in the cloud."

"In addition to its alignment with our future growth plans, this expansion further supports GBI's transformation to a global multilayer service provider," said Amr Eid, chief executive officer of GBI. "GTT's leading Tier 1 IP network will broaden GBI's reach and allow us to deliver new, innovative services, both within and outside the Middle East."

GTT and GBI expect to further grow their working relationship by launching additional PoPs and services within the region.
