Sparkle expands reach in north Africa with new point of presence in Morocco

29 April 2020

Sparkle, the Italian international service provider, has opened a new point of presence (PoP) in Casablanca, Morocco, as part of its drive to provide connectivity services to multinational enterprises.

Located at Orange Maroc open data centre, the new PoP will offer corporate communication services at giant companies looking to gain traction in the north African nation.

Political stability and economic growth in Morocco is attracting investments especially from Italian and European multinationals that are increasingly establishing offices and industrial sites in the country. At the same time, Morocco has strong and consolidated trade relations with several countries in West Africa, thus positioning itself as a commercial hub from Europe to the Sub Saharan African region.

Sparkle will offer to Italian and European multinationals ethernet and virtual private IP-VPN networks to connect their headquarters with their branches in Morocco and thus enable intracompany communication. Carrier MPLS, that extends connectivity services to other operators, and Cloud Connect, which offers private and secure connection to global cloud environments, complete Sparkle’s portfolio of services offered via the new PoP.

The PoP in Casablanca completes Sparkle’s presence in north Africa, stretching from Egypt to Morocco.
