Viatel upgrades key European routes to 100G

01 August 2014 |


Viatel has completed the second phase of its 100G network upgrade in Europe.

Building on the deployment of 100G from London to Paris last year, the pan-European network provider is now also operating 100G services between Paris and Amsterdam, and London to Amsterdam via Brussels.

The move is designed to support the increasing demand for high bandwidth from businesses, and is said to quadruple the operator’s capacity.

“We will continue our investment programme across the markets that we operate in and this increased network capacity will enable us to further develop our range of flexible solutions,” said Colm Piercy, CEO at Viatel.

In June, Viatel signed reseller agreements with European internet exchanges DE-CIX, France-IX and the London Internet Exchange (LINX).
