EuNetworks deploys 8.8 terabyte fibre-based link from London to Dublin

16 Jul 2012

Bandwidth infrastructure firm EuNetworks’ new fibre-based network from London to Dublin has gone live today. The company said this new network completes the meshing of its 13 operational fibre-based city networks into a single optical domain.

Publicly listed on the Singapore Stock Exchange, the London-based EuNetworks said that today’s deployment of the network will enable scalable connectivity and complete its service portfolio from Dublin through to London, Frankfurt and across Europe.

With multinationals, in particular, having committed to further investment in their data centre and network infrastructure in and around Dublin – think Microsoft, for instance – EuNetworks said the demand for bandwidth continues to grow.

The company said that by connecting Dublin into a national network across the UK that includes Manchester, Birmingham and Bristol and onwards to London, this network has been designed with the ability to provide optimal paths and diverse routing.

EuNetworks said it had deployed the next generation of dense wave division multiplexing (DWDM) platform in the network, enabling 10G, 40G and 100G capability.
