RETN Launches New Fiber Route Linking Berlin, Poznan, and Warsaw

Connectivity - Dark Fiber

RETN, an international network service provider, has announced the introduction of a new fiber route linking Berlin, Poznan, and Warsaw. The new route, which spans 780 kilometers, represents a significant addition to the company’s Central and Eastern European network, providing a unique additional diverse route and a significant capacity increase between Germany and Poland.

This new network employs dark fiber that was constructed alongside gas and hydrocarbon infrastructure, providing additional security and protection with near-perfect historical availability for the majority of its segments. The configuration would enable reduced latency services between Berlin and other cities in northern Germany and Warsaw. In addition, the inclusion of metro fiber in Poznan permits consumers to combine both existing and new routes for optimal diversity.

Existing RETN routes between Germany and Poland are among the busiest routes connecting the company’s Western and Eastern European networks. RETN has effectively doubled its capacity for future expansion and reduced latency with the addition of the new fiber route.

Tony O’Sullivan, the CEO of RETN, stated that this network expansion represents a major milestone for RETN and its clients. He continued, “With double the capacity for future growth, improved diversity, and reduced latency, we are confident that this new route will be a game-changer for our customers.”

“With double the capacity for future growth, improved diversity, and reduced latency, we are confident that this new route will be a game-changer for our customers,” said Tony O’Sullivan, CEO at RETN.

RETN’s European DWDM network is wholly based on the FlexILS Infinera Line System of the latest iteration, ensuring record-fast, high-quality service delivery. This new fiber route exemplifies the company’s commitment to expanding its network in order to meet the evolving requirements of businesses.

This new fiber route would be an appropriate response to the current condition of the European telecommunications industry. A recent report by Data Bridge Market Research projects that the European telecommunications market will expand at a CAGR of 5.6% between 2021 and 2028. In light of this expansion, it would be essential that network service providers like RETN remain flexible and responsive to their customers’ requirements.

In recent years, RETN has invested significantly in expanding its network infrastructure. The company has announced the introduction of a new fiber route between Helsinki and Stockholm in 2020, which will provide low-latency and high-capacity connectivity between Finland and Sweden. Additionally, the corporation has invested in subsea cable systems, such as the new high-speed Transatlantic cable system connecting North America and Europe.

RETN provides an extensive selection of connectivity services, including IP transit, Ethernet & VPN, Capacity, Remote interconnection to significant IXPs, Colocation, and Cloud Connect. The most distinguishing characteristic of RETN is its extensive international fiber network. It would enable RETN to have optimum control over its physical network, which is powered by prominent equipment vendors such as Infinera, Juniper, and Ciena, spanning more than 132,000 kilometers and including more than 865 points of presence.
