DUBLIN, Ireland, March 4
euNetworks (SGX: H23.SI), owner and operator of one of Europe's highest capacity fiber networks and provider of mission-critical communication infrastructure and services, today announced that it has expanded its IP|nex product range. The expansion will bolster the redundancy of its next generation suite of scalable, high-performance, Internet Protocol (IP) solutions through IP Transit provided by Global Crossing (Nasdaq: GLBC).
The industry-wide shift to all IP communications, whether for voice, video or data communications, has created a huge challenge to deliver scalable, high-performance IP access, in a redundant, zero-downtime environment. IP|nex enables corporates, carriers and service providers to harness the power of IP for rapid, low-cost and high-performance access to information and connect regions, customers and partners.
IP|nex simultaneously consolidates multiple IP Transit providers through one connection to the client. It taps into Tier-1 global IP providers including Global Crossing, among others, depending on the client's requirements. It also delivers real-time optimization of traffic routing for maximum performance and minimal latency through its more than 10,000 peering relationships and customers can enjoy a single service level agreement (SLA), centralized control management, one bill and one point of contact for global IP solutions.
euNetworks can deliver IP|nex door to door through its wholly-owned, low-latency pan-European network. Constructed at a cost of euro 1.3 billion, euNetworks owns and operates one of Europe's highest-capacity fiber-optic networks that combines "long-haul" fiber networks (Germany, Netherlands, United Kingdom, France and Belgium) with "last-mile" (Frankfurt, Munich, Berlin, Stuttgart, Hanover, Hamburg, Dusseldorf, Cologne, Paris, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, Utrecht, London and Dublin). In addition IP|nex will be offered via the recently announced euro-one alliance - a collaboration of Europe's leading fiber-optic network providers to deliver infrastructure and next-generation networking solutions connecting Central, Eastern, Western Europe and North America, connecting more than 350 cities through more than 1,000 points of presence.
IP|nex suite of services include IP Transit for the fastest, most redundant Internet transit and VPN|nex for fully managed, highly secure, global VPNs.
Global Crossing is one of the leading providers of IP solutions worldwide and operates an integrated global IP-based network, connecting more than 390 cities in 30 countries around the globe. Consequently, customers are not only enabled with euNetworks' extensive pan-European all-fiber network, but also allied to a secure global IP platform, providing scalable, high performance IP transit connectivity with minimum hop, minimum latency and minimum packet loss - all under the highest industry service level agreements.
Anthony Christie, managing director, EMEA for Global Crossing said: "As operator of the world's largest, wholly owned, fully converged native IP network, we're uniquely positioned to deliver to the most exacting requirements demanded by euNetworks and their expanding customer base. We're delighted that euNetworks has selected Global Crossing as provider of reliable IP Transit."
Albrecht Kraas, chief technology officer at euNetworks said: "As communications and applications converge, the ability to guarantee high availability becomes critical. euNetworks, through its ownership of an all-fiber network in Europe, is now allied to a multi-homed, highly redundant IP platform delivered by a select blend of Tier 1 providers under a single SLA."
euNetworks owns and operates one of Europe's highest capacity fiber networks and provides mission critical communication infrastructure and services to large corporations, carriers, and service providers. Constructed at a cost in excess of euro 1.3 billion, euNetworks' all-fiber optic network uniquely combines "long-haul" inter-city network linking Europe's largest economies, with high density "last-mile" metropolitan fiber networks in 15 of Europe's leading cities. euNetworks was recently awarded the prestigious title of "Best New Entrant" by leading telecommunications publication, Capacity Magazine. The award was granted to euNetworks following their acquisition of a pan-European fiber network thus extending their unique proposition of delivering private fiber networks - an offering the judges felt is of immense value to large corporations and carriers alike. euNetworks is a member of euro-one -- a unique collaboration fiber-optic network providers to deliver infrastructure and next generation networking solutions, connecting Eastern, Central and Western Europe and North America (www.euro-one.com).
