Telxius launches Derio Communications Hub in EMEA
Telxius has launched its purpose-built, interconnection-rich, Derio Communications hub.
Located in the North of Spain, the new hub is situated a few kilometres away from the landing station for the MAREA cable and has been developed in response to the growing demand from communication services.
Its open architecture has been designed to ensure that every carrier, hyperscaler, cloud and content provider benefits from its offerings.
“As Interconnection has become pervasive, we are now ready to enable new business opportunities for customers drawing on the superior latency and capacity features in MAREA, our flagship transatlantic cable,“ said Rafael Arranz (pictured), COO Telxius’ cable business. “We have done this by adding rich interconnection capabilities through a purpose-built, next-generation, highly specialized communications hub in a strategic location very close to MAREA in the north of Spain. We welcome any terrestrial fibre, connectivity, digital media, cloud and/or content provider to enjoy the best IP, capacity and colocation services by joining this new communications hub.”
With 2,000sqm and up to 4MW of power, the Derio facility is carrier neutral and features Tier III specifications. The facility is a combination of an expanded cable landing station (CLS) with advanced cable transmission capabilities as well as a fully-fledged international PoP. Joining these strengths in this purpose-built, ready-to-operate infrastructure effectively means a “one-stop shop” for a wide range of cable services.
With rich interconnection as a main design feature, this brand-new infrastructure maps Spain as a strategic communications port linking the Americas, Europe as well as connecting securely and dynamically to important international hubs such as Marseille, Paris, London and Frankfurt.
Through Marseille, a major subsea cable hotspot in the Mediterranean and a gate to other relevant markets such as MENA and APAC, the Derio communications hub opens up a door into Europe.
