3W Infra, a fast growing global provider of ‘pure play’ IaaS hosting solutions with 4,600 dedicated servers under management and a proprietary global network, has signed a strategic cooperation agreement with the Netherlands-based A2B Internet. Under the agreement, A2B Internet will operate as an extension of 3W Infra’s own engineering teams and provide international network management & support services for 3W Infra’s global network.
The 3W Infra Global Network plays an important role in the overall Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) hosting solutions portfolio delivered by the Amsterdam-based company. This global network with SLA guarantees and ample bandwidth available (currently 160 Gigabit/sec) is serving some of the most demanding 3W Infra customers worldwide, in business segments like online gaming and cloud computing services where high-speed, low-latency and ultra-reliability are crucial elements for the network.
To further enhance management & support services for the 3W Infra Global Network while extending the range of network services being delivered, 3W Infra has now signed a strategic network management & support agreement with A2B Internet. A2B Internet is a Dutch Internet Service Provider (ISP) delivering Internet connectivity, network design, network management, and other network related engineering services in data centers in the Netherlands including Amsterdam as well as internationally.
In consultation with A2B Internet as its new network management & support partner, 3W Infra has now signed a Connection Agreement with the AMS-IX Internet Exchange while also adding two PoPs in two Amsterdam data centers, in Nikhef and Equinix AM7. By expanding the number of network PoPs in the Amsterdam area, 3W Infra customers would benefit from optimized network performance and reliability, as well as enhanced cost efficiency and faster content delivery.

High-Growth Internet Traffic
“Internet traffic in 3W Infra’s global network is growing quite fast currently, due to new customers being added to our portfolio as well as existing clients with high-growth network traffic, some of whom provide international video streaming services,” said Murat Bayhan, CEO, and founder of 3W Infra. “In anticipation of customers’ expectations, new and existing ones, we wanted to take our global network management and support capabilities to the next level. This strategic cooperation with A2B Internet greatly extends the reach of our own engineering teams, while it will help our teams continue to focus on delivering seamlessly integrated and highly customized IaaS hosting solutions to our customers.”
A2B will provide more than plain network support alone, it will also help 3W Infra make valid decisions when it comes to solving highly specialized network design challenges and optimizing network routes for its clients. “As part of this strategic cooperation, A2B will get access to our ticketing system to help meet network requirements for our customers and further enhance customer satisfaction,” added Mr. Bayhan. “A2B’s services are a welcome and knowledgeable extension to our own engineering teams and we appreciate their efforts to help us further bolstering 3W Infra’s global network services.”
