Interoute has been selected by a global social media networking company to provide over 4,000 kilometres of dark fibre in Europe.
This will see Interoute deliver diverse long-haul dark fibre
routes in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy,
Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland and the UK.
David James, practice leader of wholesale telecoms, said:
"OTTs are accomplished fibre buyers. They only work with
carriers who are able to provide diverse, resilient, and
cost-effective solutions and services. Interoute has deep
network assets across Europe and has a reputation for
delivering innovative solutions for both its wholesale and
large enterprise customers."
Services to consumers and businesses provided by
over-the-top (OTT) providers are a key driver for the
exponential growth in traffic across Europe. The new fibre
routes provided by Interoute will enable the social media
networking company to service increasing user demand by adding
diversity and resilience to its backbone capacity.
Jonathan Wright, VP of commercial operations at Interoute,
added: "We are proud to be the first choice for OTTs and
internet companies to enable their European growth. This is a
great endorsement of the technical expertise that underpins our
transport and infrastructure services as we continue to
innovate across our footprint."
