Global Voice And Hosting365 Announce Multi-Year Contract For Private Fiber Network In Dublin

13th March, 2006 – Global Voice Group Limited (GVG) (SGX: H23.SI), owner and operator of metropolitan fiber networks across Europe, has today announced that it has been awarded a multi-year contract to provide a dedicated private fiber network to leading Internet Services provider Hosting365.

Exploiting Global Voice’s Dublin metropolitan network to provide the service has enabled Hosting365 to deploy a Gig-e (1,000Mbps) solution over dedicated fiber facilitating the replacement of the existing Fast Ethernet (100Mbps) service and resulting in a 10X increase in performance.

Hosting 365’s dedicated Gig–e circuit securely and redundantly connects five major datacentres in Dublin ensuring the highest availability of service at all times. Global Voice owns and operates Dublin’s most advanced and meshed networks thus affording Hosting365 the resilience it demands in order to service their clients.

Hosting365 is a specialised Internet services hosting provider dedicated to delivering the highest levels of quality and service for medium and large corporate enterprise alike. To provide such a premium quality service security, resilience and speed are mission critical. Global Voice’s private fiber based Gig-e solution now fulfils these criteria, supporting Hosting365 as they consistently strive to better the services they in turn offer to their clients.

“We are confident that the choice of Global Voice’s Private Fiber Network for Hosting 365 will provide our customers with an even more highly resilient service which is also future-proofed to mirror the growth in demand for our services.” says Stephen McCarron, Managing Director, Hosting365.

Noel Meaney, Chief Executive Officer of Global Voice Group, added: “Being selected by a leading Internet services company such as Hosting365 signifies that the much-heralded demand for fast, secure and scalable solutions delivered on fiber has arrived. Global Voice’s networks are designed to securely connect all strategic business locations in each of the cities in which they were built. The core strength of our network is the fiber which is the only medium that can scale to meet the demands of corporates, ISPs and telcos alike.”

“Very few telecoms operators have the capacity to provide bespoke solutions on dedicated, private, fiber due to the limitations of their network. Global Voice is uniquely positioned to provide dedicated, unmetered and secure solutions so that Hosting365 can continue to provide a very high quality of service while meeting growing demands of their customers.”
