Sparkle expands its international network in Iraq

Sparkle announces its network expansion in Iraq with the opening of a new Point of Presence (PoP) in Erbil in partnership with Novel Point, an Iraqi international provider of connectivity and ICT solutions.

The PoP in Erbil employs Novel Point’s state-of-the-art data centre and Sparkle Seabone’s Tier-1 Global IP backbone (AS6762) to provide world-class Internet connectivity services to the Iraqi market and neighbouring countries.

By connecting to Sparkle’s PoP in Erbil, network operators, ISPs, OTTs, content and application providers can enjoy reliable and low latency IP transit services in scalable multiples from 10GB to 100GB. Moreover, users get a full range of IP solutions including DDoS Protection services, which allow protecting their network from attacks, and Virtual NAP, which provides virtual access to leading Internet Exchange Points (IXPs) without the need to build proprietary infrastructure.

The agreement, signed on the sidelines of the Capacity Middle East 2024 global telecommunications event, underlines both companies’ commitment to usher in a new era of innovation, connectivity and technological advancement in Iraq, positioning the nation as a hub of digital excellence.
