euNetworks completes Dublin & Hilversum investment with more to come

26 Jul 18

Unrelenting demand has seen euNetworks initiate new network investment projects, with the latest in Ireland and the Netherlands coming to completion.

The company’s dc connect solution is now live in Dublin and provides customers with access to an interconnected network between 15 data centres within the city providing near instant capacity.

Hilversum in the Netherlands has also been enabled with dc connect to provide support for existing media clients in the region. The company’s dc connect solution has been made available across the Netherlands with pre-deployed capacity to 34 data centres connecting Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Utrecht, and now Hilversum.

euNetworks is currently directly connected into more than 350 data centres across Europe, with a subset of these facilities pre-spliced with fibre when they are dc connect enabled.

The dc connect solution first went live in London in 2014 and since then euNetworks has rolled it out to eight of its 14 fibre-based city networks, including Frankfurt, Paris, Manchester, Amsterdam, Utrecht, Rotterdam, and key sites in Switzerland.

The company has plans to enable the solution in further cities as it continues its expansion.

“We invest in our network and deploy capital to provide high bandwidth scalable connections in the markets in which we operate,” says euNetworks chief financial officer Jennifer Smith.

“We have owned and operated a fibre network in Dublin for a number of years. The acquisition of Inland Fibre in 2015 added a number of unique features to our footprint, with routes along canalways, diversity options to key data centres as well as access to business parks. Enabling dc connect in Dublin for our customers offers further service differentiation and support as the demand for rapid turn up of high bandwidth services between data centres, including hyperscale facilities, continues.”

euNetworks chief executive officer Brady Rafuse says the dc connect solution has delivered strong growth since they first launched it.

“We carefully select the data centres we enable with this solution, working closely with our customers and data centre operators,” Rafuse says.

“With the capability to rapidly deliver capacity from 1Gb Ethernet to 100G Metro Wavelengths, we offer further differentiation in our dc connect enabled markets. We will continue to invest in the solution across our footprint through 2018 to meet the demands of our customers.”
