Superloop has entered into a strategic partnership with Comscentre to deliver a suite of network, hosted and managed services.

Under the collaboration Superloop’s own metro fibre network allowed Comscentre to deliver network, hosted and managed services to its customers at speeds of up to 90Gbps and beyond.

“Our partnership with Comscentre means our customers have a single source for network, hosting and managed services,” said Drew Kelton, CEO of Superloop.

“With Superloop’s metropolitan fibre networks providing high speed capacity and ubiquitous connectivity, and Comscentre’s network, hosting and managed services, customers can expect real value, seamless connectivity, low latency, and value add unrivalled in Australian network infrastructure and managed services delivery.”

The companies claim that respective customers will have access to a “reliable, high-speed and cost-effective network with no downtime or latency issues”.

Comscentre MD Ben Shipley said by combining Superloop’s network-based infrastructure platform with Comscentre’s hosted services, comms and collaboration capabilities, his firm is able to deliver  differentiated value to its customers, “significantly reducing costs associated with legacy network infrastructure and connectivity providers.”

Superloop recently teamed up with Cisco on two deployments of up to 400G on the INDIGO West cable, from Singapore to Australia, and the INDIGO Central cable, from Perth to Sydney.
