Italian service provider Sparkle opens a new Point of Presence (PoP) in Fortaleza IX.BR to support the growing demand for international connectivity in Brazil. Second in Fortaleza and fourteenth in the country, the new PoP expands Sparkle’s network capillarity in Brazil – featuring presence also in São Paulo, Rio De Janeiro, Porto Alegre and Salvador – while consolidating its positioning as a leading global Tier-1 backbone in Latam and one of the main providers in the Americas.
The PoP is fully integrated with Sparkle’s global Tier-1 IP backbone Seabone that boasts extensive coverage in Central and South America with points of presence in Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Panama, Peru, Puerto Rico and Venezuela.
In addition, thanks to its terrestrial and submarine networks including the two “digital highways” Seabras-1 cable in the Atlantic and Curie in the Pacific, Sparkle offers four diversified routes for connectivity from South to North America ensuring complete redundancy and a top quality data experience.
At this PoP enterprises, network providers, ISPs, OTTs, Content and Application Providers can benefit from the full range of Sparkle’s IP portfolio including the IP Transit service Seabone, DDoS Protection.
The new PoP will grant customers the option to self-protect their networks from attacks – and Virtual NAP – which allows access to the main Internet Exchange Points (IXPs) without the need to build any proprietary infrastructure. A special promotion is dedicated to new clients willing to make a new Internet experience; contact the Seabone team for more information.
