INTERXION HOLDING NV has announced that euNetworks, a provider of bandwidth infrastructure services in Western Europe, is expanding its long haul dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) into Interxion’s data centre in Marseille, France (MRS1).
Marseille is the interconnection point for 12 international subsea cables that link Europe to Africa, the Middle East and Asia. euNetworks’ presence in Marseille will enable access to its unique inventory of fibre and duct-based assets that are tailored to fulfil high bandwidth needs.
euNetworks is deploying two diverse routes to Marseille. The first route runs from Paris to Lyon and Marseille and the second from Frankfurt to Strasbourg, Basel, Zurich, and Milan to Marseille. euNetworks will offer 10G and 100G wavelength services from all major cities on its wider network to Marseille.
“Connectivity to Marseille has been a regular request from our customers as they continue to grow their bandwidth requirements with us,” said Kevin Dean, chief marketing officer at euNetworks. “This network addition will support customers/ businesses who need to connect to Marseille as a key gateway to Asia, the Middle East and the Mediterranean from cities such as London, Dublin, Paris, and Frankfurt.”
“The extension of euNetworks’ modern, resilient, and high capacity network to Interxion Marseille (MRS1) adds tremendous value to our fast-growing community of customers in this key connectivity hub,” said Mike Hollands, director of connectivity, Interxion. “euNetworks will provide our customers with unique solutions to efficiently handle the large increase in content that is being exchanged between European cities and Africa, the Middle East and Asia.”
Interxion has operated a data centre in Marseille since 2014. There are already 12 subsea cables that can be accessed from the facility. In addition, there is a community of over 80 connectivity providers colocated there, exchanging large volumes of traffic.
