London, UK; Dublin, IRELAND 16 July 2012 – euNetworks Group Limited, today announced that it has deployed an 8.8 Tbps capable fibre based network from London to Dublin. Live and carrying customer services today, this completes the meshing of euNetworks’ 13 operational fibre based city networks into a single optical domain. euNetworks are now able to deliver their complete service portfolio from Dublin through to London, Frankfurt and across Europe.

While the region continues to experience macroeconomic pressures, the demand for bandwidth continues to grow. Multinational technology companies have committed to further investment in their data centre and network infrastructure in and around Dublin over the last 12 months, with robust and diverse connections both in the city and across Europe evermore important as they continue to scale and bandwidth usage increases. euNetworks has developed an end-to-end fully redundant and owned network. Connecting Dublin into a national network across the United Kingdom including Manchester, Birmingham and Bristol and onwards to London, this network has been designed with the ability to provide optimal paths and diverse routing. euNetworks also utilises the next generation of Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) platform in the network, enabling 10G, 40G and 100G capability day one.

“We are delighted to be able to improve our capability and connection to the Dublin market,” said Brady Rafuse, Chief Executive Officer of euNetworks. “As a bandwidth infrastructure provider, our fibre assets in the metro are at the core of our strategy and business model. For a truly seamless and scalable experience for our customers, we need to link all our operating metropolitan networks with fibre based long haul connections.
