euNetworks, a bandwidth infrastructure and data center connectivity company with a high capacity intercity backbone covering 49 cities in 15 countries across Europe, has completed network investment projects in both Ireland and the Netherlands.
Thanks to these new investments, euNetworks’ dc connect solution is now enabled in Dublin, giving customers access to an interconnected network of “near instant” capacity between 15 data centers in the city.
Hilversum, the Netherlands, where many of the country’s media companies reside, has also been enabled with dc connect, supporting existing media clients in the region. euNetworks’ dc connect solution was already available across the Netherlands, in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Utrecht, and now also in Hilversum, with a pre-deployed capacity to 34 data centers in-country.
“We have owned and operated a fiber network in Dublin for a number of years,” said Jennifer Smith, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of euNetworks. “The acquisition of Inland Fibre in 2015 added a number of unique features to our footprint, with routes along canalways, diversity options to key data centres as well as access to business parks. Enabling dc connect in Dublin for our customers offers further service differentiation and support as the demand for rapid turn up of high bandwidth services between data centers, including hyperscale facilities, continues.”
Data Center Connect Service
euNetworks first rolled out its dc connect solution in London, in 2014. Since then, their data center connectivity solution has been added to 8 of the company’s 14 fiber based city networks including Frankfurt, Paris, Manchester, Amsterdam, Utrecht, Rotterdam, and through key sites in Switzerland. Further euNetworks data center locations in other cities would follow soon.
“Our dc connect solution has delivered strong growth since we first rolled it out,” said Brady Rafuse, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of euNetworks. “We carefully select the data centres we enable with this solution, working closely with our customers and data centre operators. With the capability to rapidly deliver capacity from 1Gb Ethernet to 100G Metro Wavelengths, we offer further differentiation in our dc connect enabled markets. We will continue to invest in the solution across our footprint through 2018 to meet the demands of our customers.”
