Bandwidth provider euNetworks is investing in two new, diverse fibre routes across Europe to Marseille, France.
The network extension supports those who need to connect to Marseille as a key gateway to Asia, the Middle East and the Mediterranean from cities such as London, Dublin, Paris and Frankfurt.
The new routes also enable euNetworks to support backhaul requirements from the cable landing stations in Marseille to the rest of Western Europe. The expansion will support growing capacity needs when two new submarine cable systems, AAE-1 and SEA-ME-WE-5, connecting Asia to Europe go live later this year.
“Connectivity to Marseille was a specific request from our customers in 2015 as they continue to grow their bandwidth requirements with us,” said Kevin Dean, chief marketing officer of euNetworks.
The new routes run from Paris to Lyon and Marseille and diversely from Frankfurt to Strasbourg, Basel, Zurich, and Milan to Marseille. In addition, there will be a new link from Lyon to Geneva to Zurich.
When the routes go live, euNetworks will offer 10G and 100G wavelength services from all major cities on the network to Marseille.
Mike Hollands, director of connectivity, Interxion, commented: “The extension of euNetworks’ modern, resilient, and high-capacity network to Interxion Marseille (MRS1) adds tremendous value to our fast growing community of customers in the city. MRS1 is the interconnection gateway to Africa, the Middle East and Asia. euNetworks will provide our customers with unique solutions to efficiently handle the large increases in content that is being exchanged between European cities and these regions.”
With direct connection to over 280 data centres in Europe and owning and operating 13 fibre-based metropolitan networks, euNetworks offers a scalable, end-to-end bandwidth experience across Europe on its network.
