Interoute extends pan-European next-gen network into Ireland

16 Feb 2010

Interoute, the owner operator of Europe’s largest next-generation network, today announced it has extended its pan-European network into Ireland to meet demand from multinational enterprises looking for connectivity in the region.

The company said its new Dublin point of presence (PoP), which is live and fully operational, aims to provide businesses with resilient, high-quality voice and data services and a fast and reliable bridge to the rest of Europe.

Interoute said that despite the global recession, the number of multinational companies investing in Ireland rose by 11pc in 2009, and that it had felt some of the effects of this in 2009 with orders for connected site here rising by 43pc compared with 2008.

“Ireland is a highly attractive location for businesses. Not only is it well known as a hub for innovation and technological development, but it also offers favourable financial incentives,” said Lee Myall, UK regional director at Interoute.

“Over the past 12 months, we have seen increasing demand for our services in the region and this extension of our network into Ireland further strengthens our European footprint.”

Interoute’s Dublin PoP is fully integrated into Interoute’s pan-European network and provides businesses with managed services including IP connectivity, VPN services, managed hosting and unified communications solutions.
