Press release from: euNetworks

Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 19 February 2008 – euNetworks, (SGX: H23.SI), owner and operator of one of Europe’s highest capacity fiber networks and provider of mission critical infrastructure and services, today announced it has completed an agreement with NL-ix (Netherlands Internet Exchange). Under the terms of the agreement, euNetworks will provide host|nex, a mission critical integrated colocation and private fiber network solution to host and network one of the world’s largest Internet Exchanges.

NL-ix as one of the largest Internet Exchanges unites 169 International members looking to exchange IP traffic with one another. NL-ix was looking to move from a centralized single-core to a distributed multi-core network architecture via multiple datacenters in an effort to eliminate any single point of failure. They therefore demanded a solution that would meet their datacenter requirements and furthermore include high capacity connections between their multiple locations.

Based upon these criteria, euNetworks designed and deployed host|nex, a highly reliable solution consisting of secure colocation at their premium datacenter facility in Amsterdam for the hosting of NL-ix’s new core switch. This location is then connected to five newly upgraded core switches via a private fiber network, with a total initial activated capacity of 80 Gbit/s using Wave Division Multiplexing (WDM) technology. euNetworks furthermore provides dark fiber connections between the additional core switch locations, summing up to eight locations in total. In addition to the core switch, NL-ix also hosts an access switch at euNetworks’ high power density datacenter facility, enabling local customers to peer over NL-ix.

Ing. Jan C. Hoogenboom, CEO of NL-ix, commented: “euNetworks’ datacenter in Amsterdam is geographically located right in the city center which gives us extremely short and uniquely routed fiber connections to our existing datacenter locations. These short fiber distances and unique physical paths – through the city instead of just ring-shaped around the center – strengthen the existing NL-ix fiber network, reduce fiber outages and the amount of switch hops throughout the network and make implementation of WDM technology much easier. Additionally, euNetworks was one of the few providers to meet the strict power, cooling and security requirements that NL-ix demands.”

Noel Meaney, CEO of euNetworks, said: “We are proud to provide an integrated solution to one of the largest Internet Exchanges worldwide. Our unique solution enables NL-ix and their members with highly reliable and secure communications – all provided cost-efficiently under a single Service Level Agreement.”

euNetworks’ focus are large-scale, bespoke solutions designed and deployed around the fiber and datacenter infrastructure. The expansion into the Amsterdam datacenter enables euNetworks to provide best-in-class co-location services - allied to on-line storage solutions such as managed storage, on-line archiving and disk based back up for its many clients throughout Europe. The datacenter is serviced by multiple carriers, including euNetworks’ own all-fiber optic network which uniquely combines ‘long-haul’ inter-city network linking Germany, Netherlands, UK, France, and Belgium with high density ‘last-mile’ metropolitan fiber networks in Frankfurt, Munich, Berlin, Stuttgart, Hanover, Hamburg, Düsseldorf, Cologne, Paris, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, Utrecht, London and Dublin.
