euNetworks to Expand Long Haul DWDM Network to Marseille

London, UNITED KINGDOM 25 February 2016 – euNetworks, a provider of bandwidth infrastructure services in Western Europe, today announced it is expanding its long haul dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) network to Marseille. The company is investing in two new fibre routes, offering diversity to Marseille with bandwidth options at 10G and 100G.

“This investment increases the capacity and reach of our network in France and compliments the development made in our Paris metropolitan network in October last year,” said Kevin Dean, Chief Marketing Officer of euNetworks. “Connectivity to Marseille was a specific request from our customers in 2015 as they continue to grow their bandwidth requirements with us. The network addition supports those 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. It also enables euNetworks to support backhaul requirements from the cable landing stations in Marseille to the rest of Western Europe. Our expansion will support growing backhaul needs as the AAE-1 and SEA-ME-WE-5 cables go live this year.”

The new routes run from Paris to Lyon and Marseille and diversely from Frankfurt to Strasbourg, Basel, Zurich, and Milan to Marseille. When the routes go live, euNetworks will offer 10G and 100G Wavelengths services from all major cities on the network to Marseille. In addition there will be a new link from Lyon to Geneva to Zurich. With direct connection to over 280 data centres in Europe and owning and operating 13 fibre based metropolitan networks, euNetworks offers a scalable, end-to-end bandwidth experience across Europe on its network.

“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 the city,” said Mike Hollands, Director Connectivity, of Interxion. “MRS1 is the interconnection gateway to Africa, the Middle East and Asia; euNetworks will provide our customers with unique solutions to efficiently handle the large increases in content that is being exchanged between European cities and these regions.”
