Sparkle, the International Services arm of TIM Group announced the expansion of its global IP Tier-1 backbone with a new Point of Presence at MDC Data Centers in El Paso, Texas. 

The new PoP in El Paso adds to the existing Points of Presence in McAllen, Dallas and Laredo, strengthening Sparkle’s reach on the US-Mexico border as well as the performance of its global IP Transit service Seabone.

Located at MDC’s carrier-neutral data center, a strategic interconnection hub for networks and content providers along the US border with Mexico, the new PoP in El Paso allows Sparkle to provide to OTTs, ISPs, Content and Application Providers located in Central America high-quality Seabone IP Transit service, with maximum diversification and redundancy, lower latency and improved traffic routing capabilities globally.

DDoS Attack Mitigation which grants customers the option to self-protect their network – and the Virtual NAP solution - which lets customers access the main Internet Exchange Points without the need of building any proprietary infrastructure - complete Sparkle’s portfolio of services offered via the MDC El Paso PoP.

Sparkle claims that it operates one of the most interconnected networks in the world and has consistently ranked as one of the top ten IP Transit providers worldwide and #1 in America. Additionally, Sparkle is the only Tier-1 backbone able to offer a real diversification from South America to the US via the Seabras-1 cable, ensuring complete redundancy and reliability.
