Staffordshire Gateway Launch Offers Customers Wider Choice to Suit their Requirements
By Meenakshi Shankar
Sea Fiber Networks, a sub-sea telecom provider and operator of CeltixConnect, Europe’s most advanced sub-sea telecoms network, launched its new Staffordshire Gateway (News - Alert). This newly constructed Dublin to London route satisfies demands for capacity and low latency driven by digital services and online gaming industries typically requiring shortest route connections and extreme speeds.
This Gateway is noted to be an unrivalled interconnection point made possible by constructing a high fiber count terrestrial network from Balterly to Halmer End.
“In the past, customers rarely had a choice in backhaul provider at this location. However the addition of the Staffordshire Gateway ensures the customer is at the centre of the solution and can design a network bespoke to their requirements such as low latency (length), cost, existing relationships, or scalability,” Tom McMahon, chief technology officer at Sea Fiber Networks said in a statement.
McMahon also mentioned that Staffordshire Gateway customers can access a range of six fiber providers enabling customers with a choice of route, Service Level Agreement and cost efficiencies.
Sea Fiber Networks delivers the innovation and flexibility businesses need to stay ahead in the market place. It provides network solutions tailored to specific needs with the most efficient service. By constructing the Staffordshire Gateway, SFN bypass a longer (158km), more northerly route to London increasing diversity and lowering costs for customers.
The launch of Staffordshire Gateway demonstrates SFN’s commitment to carrier-neutrality. This also minimizes dependency on single operators and ensuring the customer is always at the forefront of choosing the best suited solution design for their requirements.
