FRANKFURT, March 8th 2010 – Interxion, a leading European operator of carrier-neutral data centres, today announced that Bezeq International, Israel’s leading Internet and international telecommunications provider, has expanded its colocation requirements, taking space in Interxion’s FRA 5 data centre. The new agreement, which significantly expands the long-standing relationship between the companies, has been made in response to growing demand from Bezeq International’s customers for its growing range of international hosting and data services.
Bezeq International took space in Interxion’s FRA 3 facility in 2006 for termination of their European traffic and as a base for provision and expansion of their international services. Since then a strong working relationship has developed, and Bezeq has successfully developed a broad portfolio of telecom solutions as well as high-end network and security services for multinationals.
“We have developed an excellent working partnership with Interxion, and it was a natural next step to expand our European capacity with them as the Interxion facility became a core part of our backbone,” said Benny Pinhas, Operations Director, Professional Services, Bezeq International. “Our relationship with Interxion creates value for our customers and generates revenue for us. We have other providers in Europe, but Interxion is far and away the most important to our business model.”
Interxion’s five interconnected Frankfurt data centres provide highly reliable infrastructure and direct access to over 70 carriers and 80 ISPs – one of the highest carrier and network provider densities in Europe. In addition to secure, high-availability and connected infrastructure with up to 2N power backup and redundant cooling, Interxion provides customers with a wide range of optional monitoring and maintenance services and turnkey managed services.
“Our productive and growing relationship with Bezeq International underlines the added value we can bring to ambitious global service providers,” said Peter Knapp, Interxion Germany MD. “As Bezeq continues to grow, we look forward to continuing to work with them to provide an industry leading pan European connectivity solution to meet their needs.”
