Aqua Comms, a network provider offering scalable, subsea capacity-based network solutions, has selected Telehouse’s data center infrastructure to provide a European hub for its “next-generation” transatlantic fiber optic cable network.
Aqua Comms’ America Europe Connect (AEConnect) subsea fiber optic cable system, connecting New York to London via Dublin and beyond to greater Europe, went live and has been handing over commercial service to customers since January of this year.
Featuring more than 52 Tbps of available capacity, as well as the latest technology of 130 x 100 Gbps per fiber pair, it is designed to meet the exponential surge in bandwidth demand from carriers, global data centers, financial services companies, global media, and cloud and content providers that require network reliability, scalability and performance.
There are multiple diverse routes from the Telehouse London Docklands data center campus across EMEA and the decision by Aqua Comms further strengthens connectivity to New York.
“Telehouse Carrier-Interconnect, located at Europe’s leading connectivity hub, empowers our customers to connect with an unlimited number of business partners whose services align with their strategic objectives,” said Greg Varisco, Chief Operations Officer, Aqua Comms. “In addition to further enabling reliable, secure, and low latency global connections for our customers, this partnership provides Aqua Comms with a host of business opportunities on either side of the Atlantic as well as at Telehouse North Two, Europe’s most advanced data center.”
Telehouse Carrier-Interconnect is just one aspect of Telehouse Interconnect, which brings together more than 3,000 business partners such as cloud, mobile and content providers, enterprises and financial services companies. With Enhanced Connect, the new Internet optimization service launched recently by Telehouse, businesses would be able to access the Telehouse Interconnect from the remotest points of the planet in less than 300ms.
