Join Capacity Media, Telehouse and Orange Wholesale for a free webinar on 28th March 2024 at 2pm GMT / 3pm CET to hear about how the Marseille hub connects the world and the relationship between Telehouse’s data centres and Orange Wholesale’s international network.

This is your opportunity to gain valuable insights into the strategic positioning, connectivity ecosystems, global development initiatives, and partnership opportunities offered by Telehouse and Orange Wholesale in the ever-evolving global data center and connectivity market.

Join the webinar and find out:

  • How Telehouse has put itself at the centre of the global data centre market by establishing a presence in some of the world’s key connectivity hubs, including London, Paris, Frankfurt and Marseille. These are some of the most connected locations in Europe, with the London Docklands campus ranking first in the region.

  • Telehouse’s wide connectivity ecosystem, with direct connections to multiple cloud providers, broadcasters, media players and carriers such as Orange Wholesale.

  • Telehouse’s global development to help capitalise on terrestrial and subsea cable infrastructure. This activity included opening a new €250 million data centre in Paris and its first Thailand-based data centre, in Bangkok, where the company is aiming to make the facility the country’s first purpose-built data centre to achieve 100% power supply by renewable energy. In addition, the company announced plans for a major upgrade to its London Docklands-based Telehouse South and acquired three carrier-neutral data centres in Toronto, Canada.

  • How Orange provides robust infrastructure to reach Telehouse data centres in key markets and those in other parts of the world, with the company having a wide-reaching global network in regions including Europe and Africa.

  • Orange has a total of 450,000km of submarine cables and 45,000km of terrestrial fibre worldwide, and has been involved in multiple major subsea cable builds, including the transatlantic Dunant and Amitié cables and the 2Africa system. The 2Africa cable system, for instance, has a design capacity of up to 180Tbps and the recently launched Amitié a maximum capacity of 400Tbps. Orange also unveiled new 400G offers in December.

  • With such extensive networks and services across the world, Orange provides high-quality capacity to connect Telehouse data centres and cloud regions – making the two well-matched and with a wide footprint to offer resources to international customers.
