Viatel continues European expansion plans with new points of presence added in London and Paris
Viatel announces the connection of two new points of presence to its European fibre backbone network. The demand for bandwidth across key European cities has prompted the connection of Telehouse Metro in London and Paris Equinix 4 to the network.
These new sites will enhance Viatel’s wholly owned network infrastructure which includes more than 150 points of presence and spans across Western Europe with direct reach into cities such as London, Dublin, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Paris and Zurich. The new London and Paris sites are key access points to the Viatel network and enable customers to take advantage of Viatel’s connectivity, voice, data centre and cloud services portfolio.
This investment follows a stream of recent developments at Viatel including a significant infrastructure project between Milan and Marseille. The completed network build is now ready for service and enables Viatel to provide diverse as well as protected wavelength and Ethernet services with speeds of up to 100G from Milan and Marseille.
Com Piercy, CEO at Viatel said, “The demand for bandwidth continues to drive our business and we have been working to expand our network reach and capacity significantly over the past year by opening up new routes, adding new POPs to the network and increasing network capacity by adding 100G capabilities across key network routes. This continued investment from Viatel demonstrates our commitment to meet the growing demand for high bandwidth services in London and across Europe.”
