10 June 2015 |


Colt has launched a data centre interconnection solution which it claims fast tracks access to key European and Asian hubs.

DCNet will initially be available in Amsterdam, Brussels, Frankfurt, London, Madrid, Paris and Zurich.

The service has been designed to enable the rapid provisioning of 100Mbps and up to 10Gbps connections, with wholesale and enterprise customers said to be able to activate services in five working days.

DCNet is said to help enterprises and service providers expand into new markets and offers direct access to over 560 vendor neutral data centres in Europe and Asia.

“DCNet supports this goal by providing service providers and enterprises with flexibility and simplicity: the ability to choose from a vast network of data centres to best meet the business requirements while also being able to rapidly and cost-effectively connect to the ecosystem of business partners and easily upgrade bandwidth or switch routes as required,” said Zhongmin Guo, VP of strategy and business development, network services, Colt.

The first stage of the DCNet deployment will be completed by the end of June and focus on key data centres in London, Frankfurt and Paris.
