Interoute announced that it has been selected by DANTE (Delivery
of Advanced Network Technology to Europe) to supply dark fibre and
managed wavelength services. Interoute will provide these services as
part of the revolutionary GEANT2 network, which is being built by DANTE
on behalf of Europe's National Research and Education Networks (NRENs).
For the first time, the core of this network will be based on dark
fibre. The network extends beyond the London-Paris-Amsterdam-Frankfurt
commodity golden rectangle and Interoute is providing 25 percent of the 12,000
fibre route kilometers contracted. Interoute will supply dark fibre in
Austria, France, Italy, Spain and Switzerland, as well as wavelength
services linking Austria and Germany. The GEANT2 network will serve 30
million potential users in 34 countries.
GEANT2 is the largest ever multi-gigabit pan-European data
communications network built for the European academic community and
has been adapted to the evolving needs of Europe's researchers by
providing improved resources for handling the very large amounts of
data generated by some advanced scientific research initiatives --
including the new Large Hadron Collider at CERN and radio telescopes
located across Europe -- without disrupting the high performance
service provided to the community as a whole.
"We are proud to be working with DANTE on the next-generation global
network," says Jim Kinsella, CEO of Interoute. "Networking excellence
is at the core of our business so we can ensure that the network speed
and reliability is always at an optimal level."
