03 June 2016 | Jason McGee-Abe


Zayo has been selected by Link11, a German infrastructure provider and CDN specialising in DDoS protection and server hosting, to provide an Ethernet solution and provide a flexible, low-latency network.

Zayo’s E-LAN solution will provide Link11 with a multi-point to multi-point configuration, consolidating fragmented elements into a unified, high-performance network. Customers will benefit from increased flexibility to move data allowances within the network to accommodate fluctuating demand.

Alastair Kane, managing director, Northern Europe at Zayo, said: “For global companies like Link11 that are looking to connect multiple sites to their network, our E-LAN multipoint-to-multipoint service is an ideal solution. Our new network assets, acquired from Viatel and Allstream, have significantly expanded our footprint across Europe and Canada, providing customers with lower latency and better application performance.”

“We pride our network on three attributes: availability, performance and security,” added Jens-Philipp Jung, managing director at Link11. “With more than 500 Gbps bandwidth capacity worldwide, Link11 has one of the largest networks as an anti DDoS solution provider in operation in Europe.”

The Link11 network will span London, Frankfurt, Miami, New York and Los Angeles and will leverage the recently acquired Viatel assets.
