LONDON, 4th March, 2010 - Interxion, a leading European operator of carrier-neutral data centres, today announced that FibreSpan, a network carrier specialising in dark fibre and ultra-high-bandwidth services, has successfully connected its network to Interxion’s London City data centre. The addition of FibreSpan’s dedicated dark fibre network to Interxion’s London City data centre brings its total portfolio of carriers to 32, offering Interxion’s customers an even wider range of connectivity options. In addition, FibreSpan’s customers are now able to locate their mission-critical systems in one of the most desirable colocation facilities in the UK.
FibreSpan specialises in the design, construction, and maintenance of bespoke dark fibre and ultra-high-bandwidth managed networks. It was one of the first to pioneer the delivery of dedicated dark fibre to multiple customers – consisting of digital media post production houses, financial organisations, local authorities, hospitals and universities – connected to its bespoke point-to-point networks.
Interxion’s data centre, located in the heart of the City, offers some of the lowest latency on the market and provides a highly secure physical location with advanced infrastructure for mission-critical applications. High-density power configurations from 5 kW up to 30 kW are available as standard, with industry-leading service levels and availability and 24x7 secure access to equipment.
“Interxion’s central city location was a critical factor in our decision-making process because everything we do is focused on low latency”, said Robert Bicket, Chief Executive Officer at FibreSpan. “All of our financial and digital media customers look to us to provide them with the lowest latency possible, so we always ensure our networks are designed to deliver just that.” “FibreSpan is another excellent example of the successful execution of our segment strategy which focuses on bringing together communities of interest that can benefit from close proximity to one another,” said Kevin Dean, Chief Marketing Officer Interxion. “With the addition of FibreSpan to our roster of connectivity partners, we are particularly excited about being able to enhance the low-latency connectivity options available to financial services and digital media customers,” concludes Dean.
