In order for edpnet to establish a strong European presence, connectivity was key. Telehouse’s data centre is a key transport hub for all fibre optics coming in and out of Europe. By setting up a PoP within Telehouse’s data centre based in the heart of London Docklands, edpnet has access to over 400 carriers, ISPs and ASPs, all of which are currently colocated at Telehouse.
Edpnet also has connectivity to major telecoms and network service providers, while being connected to all Telehouse data centres and its associated networks.
“When it came to identifying a suitable data centre, we had to be sure whoever we chose had the capacity for future expansion as well as the ability to grow with our needs,” said Deutz.
“In terms of location, Telehouse was ideally placed to meet our need of providing a significant offering into European markets. We can connect to all its London sites as well as having access to an extensive range of carriers, ISPs and ASPs, which we can select to find the one that best fit our business needs. In addition, the cost and rates being offered were incredibly competitive, and represent real value for money for us. After assessing all these points as well as meeting them, it was clear their passions aligned with ours.”
In addition to providing a PoP into European markets, edpnet will also be provided with secure site access with 24x7x365 operational control, monitoring and preventative maintenance, as well as skilled engineers providing 24-hour technical support.
