PARIS 27 April 2010 – Interxion, a leading European provider of carrier-neutral colocation data centre services, today announced that China Telecom (Europe) Limited, the EMEA division of China Telecom, the world’s largest wireline telecommunications and broadband services provider, has chosen Interxion’s PAR 5 data centre in Paris as part of its operation to expand its network across Europe.
Established in 2006 and based in London, China Telecom (Europe) Limited (CTE) is committed to establishing an ‘Information Silk Road’ that not only links Europe and China but also extends across the entire EMEA region and the globe. Along with its strategic partners, CTE provides customers throughout the EMEA region with global business communication solutions and enhanced European market services.
Interxion’s PAR 5 data centre provides the latest secure, scalable infrastructure for mission-critical IT systems with a wide range of connectivity solutions including dual-fibre entry and direct access to more than 50 carriers and ISPs, including the PaNAP, FreeIX, PARIX and SFINX Internet exchanges. The facility has a 16 MVA/20 kV redundant grid supply, enabling high-density power configurations, with industry-leading service levels and availability as well as 24×7 secure access to equipment.
David Chen, Deputy Managing Director and Head of Network Department at China Telecom (Europe) Limited, said, “We chose Interxion because of its ability to provide a highly resilient infrastructure and unrivalled data centre expertise. The facts that it also has 27 data centres in 11 countries throughout Europe and that we had previously completed a successful project at its Frankfurt data centre made Interxion an ideal proposition for us.”
Kevin Dean, Chief Marketing Officer Interxion said, “This partnership is further evidence of Interxion’s expertise in supporting companies as they expand their reach across Europe. Our PAR 5 data centre offers some of the best connectivity options in Europe and houses the four leading French Internet exchanges, making it an ideal location to support China Telecom’s initial expansion across the region.”
