Dubai, 9 March 2017 – datamena, the carrier-neutral data centre and connectivity platform, partners with Epsilon, a privately owned global communications service provider, to deploy Epsilon's Infiny on-demand connectivity platform. In an industry first, datamena will be able to connect its enterprise customers directly to world-leading Cloud service providers and destinations around the world at the click of a button.
The Infiny platform enables datamena to rapidly provision a comprehensive suite of on-demand connectivity services via a web-based portal, APIs and iOS or Android mobile apps. It enables datamena`s customers to move quickly to deploy new services and connect to the Cloud while managing and adjusting services in real-time.

With Infiny, it is able to accelerate how it serves its customers while removing the complexity from global networking. Enterprises customer`s across the Middle East will benefit from Cloud-centric networking that supports long-term enterprise innovation," said Jerzy Szlosarek, CEO at Epsilon.
datamena was launched in 2012 and is operated by du. Its ecosystem supports more than 100 partners from the Middle East and around the world.
"We are the first ecosystem in the Middle East to deploy the Infiny platform and it gives our enterprise customers a flexible and reliable foundation for deploying innovative services and growing their businesses. It is great to continue to expand our long-term partnership with Epsilon and see its platform deployed in Dubai," said Hany Fahmy Aly, Executive Vice President Enterprise Business, du.
Infiny is supported with bespoke intelligent networking technology that enables it to offer guaranteed Quality of Service and experience end-to-end and around the world. The Infiny Android and iOS apps are available for download from respective app stores. Users that pre-connected to Epsilon will be able to request a login into these apps, allowing them the ability to procure and monitor services, anytime anywhere from their mobile devices.
"The Cloud is reshaping the ICT ecosystem and it demands new models for networking. The Infiny platform gives us on-demand connectivity to global hubs as well as direct Cloud access. Our customers will benefit from rapid scalability, global visibility and a platform that is ready to adapt to meet their changing needs," said Hany Aly.
Users are able to procure and manage Epsilon's services via Infiny's web-based portal, APIs, and Android and iOS mobile apps. They can use the self-service platform to procure local, regional and global port-to-port, port-to-Cloud, port-to-Internet Exchange, SIP Trunking and last mile DIA and SD-WAN services.
"Infiny is the result of more than a decade of simplifying how our partners connect and deliver services around the globe. We have taken our core set of services and made them available via a simple and powerful platform. It removes the friction from voice, data and local access services and delivers truly Cloud-centric networking," said Jerzy Szlosarek, CEO at Epsilon. "We have reduced the complexity of global networking to a mobile app and web based portal, delivering networking as a utility in the form of a fully adaptable API. This is a step change in our industry."
From the Infiny.cloud web portal, partners gain complete visibility into their service status with click-to-connect provisioning and back end automation. Partners also have the option to use the Infiny.io API to plug Epsilon's services directly into their existing platforms.
"Infiny enables users to manage global connectivity on-demand. They can see network performance and analytics while adding news services directly from a smartphone. It is that simple. Infiny puts Data Connectivity, Direct Cloud Access, SIP Trunking and Last Mile services in the palm of your hand and removes the limits from networking," Carl Roberts, Chief Commercial Officer at Epsilon. "The user is in control of their services and gains a set of services that they turn up at the click of a button."
Infiny is supported with bespoke intelligent networking technology that enables it to offer guaranteed Quality of Service end-to-end and around the world. Each service is accessible from the platform in a modular format. Epsilon's Cloud Link eXchange (CloudLX) platform will become a module of Infiny. Its SD-WAN module will enable users to connect enterprise locations globally.
"When the network is a utility, it becomes easier to innovate. Software and application developers are no longer restricted by the lack of agility in traditional networks. They can rollout services knowing the network will be able to support them and offer the flexibility and adaptability they need. Infiny supports the entire ecosystem and turns the network into a driver for innovation," said Szlosarek.
Android and iOS apps will be available for download in March 2017. Users that pre-connected to Epsilon will be able to request a login into these apps, allowing them the ability to procure and monitor services, anytime anywhere.
