Equinix and Omantel open new Muscat data centre

Monday 5 October 2020 | 09:59 CET | News
Equinix and Omantel have announced the opening of their new International Business Exchange (IBX) data centre in Barka near Muscat under the name MC1. The facility is a first world-class, carrier-neutral hub in Oman where carriers, content providers and cloud providers can colocate critical IT infrastructure. The strategic location between Asia, Africa and Europe means the new Equinix IBX in Oman will serve as a regional interconnection hub, providing ultra-low latency connection points between key global business markets.
