Manchester benefits from high-density fibre network18/08/17Science & Technology
Bandwidth services provider euNetworks has constructed a new high-density fibre network in the city of Manchester, UK, covering a more than 40 kilometre route.
The move expands euNetworks European footprint and enables a network experience from London through to Manchester and Dublin, Ireland, and onwards to Europe.
This new network was designed for resilience, and euNetworks undertook a combination of new construction and duct acquisition to complete it, with duct and sub-duct acquired from fibre networks, The Loop and CityFibre.
Ashley Griffiths, managing director of The Loop Manchester, said: “We are delighted to have been selected by euNetworks to provide parts of this important network development for Manchester.
“euNetworks is a bandwidth infrastructure company that continues to support the growing connectivity requirements of businesses both in the UK and across Europe. They are a great compliment to The Loop’s activity in Manchester, with an impressive approach to supporting their customer’s demands.”
The implementation gives customers access to an interconnected network of 12 data centres using pre-spliced fibre.
Brady Rafuse, chief executive officer of euNetworks, said: “We invest in our network to provide high bandwidth scalable connections in the markets in which we operate.
“Data centre connectivity remains critically important to business today, enabling the agility and flexibility customers seek in response to dynamic market conditions and cost-efficiencies.
“Manchester is a significant UK growth market and our investment in constructing a new fibre network and rolling out DC Connect in the city is in response to the demand we see from our customers here.”
