TE partners with Amsterdam firm to launch internet exchange point

Egypt’s first open-access internet exchange point is live: An internet exchange built by Telecom Egypt and the Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX) went live on Friday, according to a joint statement over the weekend. The EG-IX is an open-access platform that allows large network, cloud and telecom providers to directly exchange data. The Amsterdam exchange is providing infrastructure, software, firewalls and technical support for the project, which is housed in the country’s largest data center, launched last year. The center is connected to TE’s 14 Mediterranean and Red Sea subsea cable systems, which will be increased to 18 by 2025.

ALSO- Alexandria’s Elite Hospital has partnered with US-based medical device company Medtronic to launch an advanced stroke care center (pdf).
