Telxius partners Interxion to interconnect Dunant subsea cable
Interxion has entered into an agreement with Telxius to enable direct interconnection for the Dunant subsea cable at Interxion Paris, France.
Specifically, Telxius’ capacity on the 6,400km Dunant will extend the reach and capacity of PlatformDIGITAL, Digital Realty’s global data centre platform.
“Ensuring our customers can easily access the services we provide over Dunant is key for us. By extending the Dunant capabilities directly into Interxion in Paris, we make it more efficient and simpler for customers to interconnect onto the system, while at the same time integrating it with the internet highways connecting Paris to Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Madrid and Marseille,” said Carlos Casado (pictured below), head of EMEA sales of Telxius’ cable business.
“Telxius also provides direct Marea backhaul capacity from its Derio Communications Hub in Bilbao to Paris, Madrid and Virginia Beach. It means that, in combination with our existing transatlantic capacity on the Marea subsea cable system, Telxius now supports customers with state-of-the-art, diverse routes across the Atlantic.”
Through the new direct connection between Northern Virginia and Paris gives enterprises greater resiliency, flexibility and performance as they look to interconnect workflows globally and deploy hybrid IT solutions at these key centres of data exchange.
“The next-generation connectivity that Telxius offers to our customers via Dunant will greatly enhance the ability of PlatformDIGITAL to help enterprises overcome the trans-Atlantic data gravity barriers inhibiting their digital transformation goals,” added Fabrice Coquio (pictured at top), managing director of Interxion France.
“Telxius’ ultra-high capacity services, improved communication reliability and faster network performance to the US are now available directly from our Paris digital business hub.”
Interxion’s Paris campus is comprised of seven data centres and is currently undergoing major expansion with the construction of the Interxion Paris Digital Park. Through this partnership. Interxion customers in all existing and planned data centres can interconnect to Telxius’ network capacity on Dunant.
