Network services given optical boost

Optical connectivity services provider AFIBER has expanded its service footprint with the maincubes AMS01 data centre located in the Schiphol-Rijk district of Amsterdam.

IT service providers can now tap into AFIBER’s optical transmission services to deliver their services to maincubes customers, or connect maincubes to any destination within the AFIBER footprint covering more than 50 data centres and better than 1500 enterprise locations.

With AFIBER’s services, maincubes can now meet the high capacity connectivity demands of its customers, ranging from 1Gbps to 100Gbps multiples, while reducing average transmission latency by more than 50 percent compared to IP and Ethernet services. Cyber security solutions include cost-effective end-to-end optical encryption of high capacity network connections without impacting latency or throughput.
 
“Customers expect a data centre to have a broad ecosystem of network and IT service providers available that enables them to build a solution that fits their purposes and provide the flexibility to grow their business on their own terms,” said Joris te Lintelo, director of maincubes Amsterdam. “The addition of AFIBER’s connectivity services to the maincubes AMS01 data centre in The Netherlands demonstrates that we are listening closely to the need for flexible connectivity and security requirements of our customers.”
