By Raju Shanbhag
CeltixConnect from Sea Fiber links into its own exchange at Halmer End called the Staffordshire Gateway (News - Alert), making use of the Welsh Government's open access network Fibrespeed. This highly strategic gateway allows dark fiber connections northwards to Manchester, directly southwards to London or onwards to Europe over various third party dark fiber providers through SFN’s Partner Network Program.
Recently, Sea Fiber Networks announced a new fiber contract with euNetworks, one of Europe's bandwidth infrastructure providers. Connected with a high capacity intercity backbone, euNetworks owns and operates 13 fiber based metropolitan networks across Europe, the company stated in a press release.
euNetworks' customers have been provided with a low latency solution that connects Ireland to the United Kingdom on a wholly diverse route to existing, older sub-sea systems from the end of June. At 136 kilometers, CeltixConnect is the shortest sub-sea network linking Ireland and the United Kingdom and offers the important infrastructure as a foundation for low latency bandwidth solutions. Allowing the transport of data from Ireland across to Europe, the new fiber network is a completely diverse route.
David Selby, VP of Product and Strategy of euNetworks stated, "This diverse link between the United Kingdom and Ireland serves euNetworks' customers in the financial services, carrier and media segments who depend on highly reliable, scalable and low latency connectivity services. These customers depend on euNetworks for a state-of-the-art network infrastructure like CeltixConnect that supports their future ambitions.”
Recently, TMC (News - Alert) reported that the company provided a 100 Gigabit (G) capable network to market by upgrading its European long haul transport platform. The upgraded platform, combined with a dual gateway strategy and unique mesh based fiber city networks, offers unique proposition to the market.
