European Bandwidth Infrastructure Provider Deploys Fibre Network Linking London to Dublin Serving Customer Demand
16 July 2012, Dublin, Ireland – Sea Fibre Networks, owner and operator of Europe’s most advanced sub-sea telecoms network,CeltixConnect, today announced a new fibre contract with euNetworks, one of Europe’s leading bandwidth infrastructure providers. From the end of June, euNetworks’ customers have been enabled with a low latency solution connecting Ireland to the United Kingdom on a completely diverse route to existing, older sub-sea systems.
CeltixConnect, at 136 kilometres, is the shortest sub-sea network linking Ireland and the United Kingdom, providing the vital infrastructure as a foundation for low latency bandwidth solutions. The new fibre network is a completely diverse route, enabling the transport of data from Ireland across to Europe.
euNetworks owns and operates 13 fibre based metropolitan networks across Europe, connected with a high capacity intercity backbone. Prior to deployment of a fibre based intercity link between London and Dublin, euNetworks leased capacity for this connection, thus they could not deliver their full suite of bandwidth services. With growing demand for their portfolio among existing customers, euNetworks has invested in a solution that gives them an end-to-end fully redundant fibre network. This coupled with their unique fibre based meshed city network in Dublin, delivers a unique connectivity proposition to the Dublin and European market. All euNetworks metropolitan markets are now connected with long haul fibre.
Diane Hodnett, Sea Fibre Networks’ CEO, says; “I am delighted to announce euNetworks as a customer. euNetworks is a highly regarded bandwidth infrastructure provider with a strategy and a portfolio of services focused on supporting the ever-growing bandwidth needs of commerce today. CeltixConnect is a key part of the infrastructure used by euNetworks to deliver a network that now links Dublin to London and Europe.”
David Selby, Vice President of Product and Strategy of euNetworks says “This diverse link between the United Kingdom and Ireland serves euNetworks’ customers in the financial services, carrier and media segments who depend on highly reliable, scalable and low latency connectivity services. These customers depend on euNetworks for a state-of-the-art network infrastructure like CeltixConnect that supports their future ambitions.”
