Interoute to support global social media company’s European expansion
21 May 2018 | Natalie Bannerman
Interoute has been selected by a global social media networking company to provide over 4,000 kilometres of dark fibre in Europe.
This will see Interoute deliver diverse long-haul dark fibre routes in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland and the UK.
David James, practice leader of wholesale telecoms, said: “OTTs are accomplished fibre buyers. They only work with carriers who are able to provide diverse, resilient, and cost-effective solutions and services. Interoute has deep network assets across Europe and has a reputation for delivering innovative solutions for both its wholesale and large enterprise customers.”
Services to consumers and businesses provided by over-the-top (OTT) providers are a key driver for the exponential growth in traffic across Europe. The new fibre routes provided by Interoute will enable the social media networking company to service increasing user demand by adding diversity and resilience to its backbone capacity.
Jonathan Wright, VP of commercial operations at Interoute, added: “We are proud to be the first choice for OTTs and internet companies to enable their European growth. This is a great endorsement of the technical expertise that underpins our transport and infrastructure services as we continue to innovate across our footprint.”
