Relined Fiber Network (Relined) has announced that it is connecting CyrusOne’s brand-new data centre, Amsterdam I, to its dark fibre network, the preferred fibre carrier in the Netherlands. Relined has 30,000 kilometres of high-grade fibre optic infrastructure resulting in nationwide fine-meshed dark fibre networks in both the Netherlands and Germany. Dark or unlit fibre is the foundation of fibre-optic communications used for high-capacity and high-speed networks around the world.
Since the establishment, Relined Fiber Network has been focused on entering into an infrastructure partnership to connect as many carrier-neutral data centres as possible. One such cooperation is with a premier global data centre real estate investment trust (REIT), CyrusOne, which has a significant European portfolio totalling nearly 150 megawatts of operational facilities and sites under development across Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam and Dublin.
“As a major European data centre hub, Amsterdam I is critical to CyrusOne’s strategy to expand its colocation presence in Europe,” says Matt Pullen, EVP Managing Director Europe, CyrusOne. “Our partnership with Relined Fiber Network reinforces CyrusOne’s commitment to providing agile and scalable high-capacity connectivity to enterprise customers worldwide, enabling them to extend their existing networks or expand into new markets.”
