16 July 2012 | Kavit Majithia
euNetworks has deployed an 8.8Tbps fibre-based network spanning from London to Dublin and across to the rest of Europe.
The deployment meshes together euNetworks' 13 operational fibre-based city networks into a single domain, and allows the company to deliver its service portfolio from Dublin through to London, Frankfurt and the rest of Europe.
euNetworks cited the region’s increasing demands for bandwidth as a reason why technology companies have had a continued commitment to investing in data centre and network infrastructure in Dublin over the past 12 months. The end-to-end fully redundant network connects from Dublin in to a national network across the UK and is designed to provide optimal paths and diverse routing.
euNetworks utilises a next generation of DWDM in the network, enabling 10G, 40G and 100G capability.
“As a bandwidth infrastructure provider, our fibre assets in the metro are at the core of our strategy and business model,” said Brady Rafuse, CEO at euNetworks. “For a truly seamless and scaleable experience for our customers, we need to link all our operating metropolitan networks with fibre-based long-haul connections.”
David Selby, VP of product and strategy at the company, cited its commitment to serving “large wholesale carriers, ISPs, media companies, financial services and other high bandwidth consuming enterprises in the market”.
He added: “This network development means we are truly offering our clients a seamless experience with metro wavelengths, wavelengths, Ethernet and internet across our footprint, with good opportunity to scale.”
