London – May 17, 2016 – Telehouse, a leading global provider of data center services, announces that it has been selected by Aqua Comms Limited (Aqua Comms), a provider of scalable, subsea capacity-based network solutions, to provide a European hub for its next-generation transatlantic network.
Aqua Comms’ America Europe Connect (AEConnect) subsea fiber optic cable system, connecting New York to London via Dublin and beyond to greater Europe, went live and has been handing over for commercial service to customers since January of this year. Featuring more than 52 Tbps of available capacity as well as the latest technology of 130 x 100 Gbps per fibre pair, it is designed to meet the exponential surge in bandwidth demand from carriers, global data centres, financial services companies, global media, and cloud and content providers that require exceptional network reliability, scalability and performance. Aqua Comms is the latest network provider to join Telehouse Carrier-Interconnect, which is comprised of more than 750 Carriers, Mobile providers, Internet Exchanges and ISPs.
As a leading provider of carrier-neutral data centers there are multiple diverse routes from the Telehouse London Docklands campus across EMEA. The decision by AquaComms further strengthens connectivity to New York. With Telehouse at the epicenter, it is the ideal location for companies reliant on diverse connectivity to extend their reach and accelerate performance, to host their mission critical IT infrastructure.
