Enet agrees partnership with EXA Infrastructure to deliver high bandwidth inter datacentre connectivity between Ireland and cities in Europe and across North America
Mar 11, 2022
Enet, Ireland’s largest open access telecoms network provider, has today completed a partnership agreement with EXA Infrastructure, the largest dedicated digital infrastructure platform connecting Europe and North America. The move will enable new high-speed datacentre to datacentre optical network connections between Dublin and datacentres in Europe and across the North Atlantic.
Enet’s new service, entitled ‘International Wave’, will utilise EXA Infrastructure’s backhaul network to deliver price competitive, secure, high-speed and transparent inter datacentre connectivity and assure capacity for demanding applications now and as traffic volumes grow.
The partnership covers over 40 key priority datacentres in Europe including Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam, Paris, Marseilles and Milan as well as a variety of North American routes on the EXA Infrastructure network, which is now the largest dedicated digital infrastructure platform connecting the two continents. Importantly, this exciting new service from Enet facilitates the delivery of large volumes of data for datacentre workloads, including ultra-high-definition video content, Internet of Things applications and the continual rise in the usage of cloud-based applications.
The new International Wave service will utilise EXA Infrastructure’s wavelength services to provide 10Gbps and 100Gbps circuit capacities. These services provide low latency and guaranteed bandwidth as there will be no sharing of connections.
International Wave will be a key connectivity product for enterprises and carriers to facilitate the expansion of reach and capacity as the industry works to facilitate growth in bandwidth demand across the globe. With advances in technology driving flexibility and affordability, wavelength services are now a key part of mission critical networks.
Enet customers can get quotations and place orders for their selected datacentre to datacentre connection on Enet Connect, Enet’s customer self-serve digital platform.
Enet also offers carriers a wide and innovative range of world-class fibre and wireless wholesale products and services, ranging from Managed Connectivity, Infrastructure Access, Direct Internet Access and white label broadband.
Cormac Ryan, Commercial Director of Enet, said: “We’re delighted to announce this new partnership which enables us to deliver the highest quality bandwidth connections from Dublin to a host of major cities across Europe and North America. Ireland is a prime location and ideal hub for an ever-increasing number of organisations looking for a European base and providing this high capacity, data connectivity into and out of Ireland is key to serving the incredible growth in demand for secure international data connections. We’re excited to be able to provide our customers with solutions that enhance international data access given the rise in need for capabilities in datacentres and cloud-based applications.”
Ciaran Delaney, Chief Operating Officer of EXA Infrastructure, said: “The quality and resiliency of long-haul networks connecting datacentres across countries and continents has become absolutely critical as digital workloads increase, and where and how we work continues to evolve. Our close collaboration with Enet allows its Irish customer base secure access to the EXA high-capacity network where they most need connectivity, predominantly into Europe in line with the increased growth and bandwidth demands we are seeing in today’s market. We are committed to partnerships that enable customers to access to our expansive network, and are also committed to investing in strategic expansions and further optimisations and enhancements of our critical Subsea and terrestrial infrastructure.”
