London, United Kingdom (PRWEB) May 19, 2008
Geo, a leading provider of dedicated fibre networks, today announced that it has been selected by major Icelandic Telco provider Siminn, to provide them with a dedicated fibre connection between two London data centres for a 5 year term. This collaboration will enable Siminn to offer its customers, which include several major Icelandic banks, with faster and more secure services.
Siminn commissioned Geo to upgrade and replace their existing link between Telehouse East and Telecity Redbus Meridian Gate with a diverse dedicated fibre connection. The decision to start using fibre routed through London's sewer system was a result of growing concerns over network outages and security. The sewers provide a much safer environment for fibre than traditional trenches as they are less likely to be interrupted by street digging.
"Due to our growing customer base, we required a high capacity, scaleable solution on which to run faster technology and eliminate congestion on our network. Geo, who was highly recommended to us, has helped us fulfil our capacity planning needs for the near future in a very cost-effective and efficient manner," commented Thor Jes Thorisson, Chief Technical Officer, Siminn.
Chris Smedley, Chief Executive, Geo, added, "We are delighted to be working with Iceland's leading Telco to help them streamline and future-proof their London network. Our Geo.Metro proposition can add real value to companies looking for a reliable presence in London as it has had zero outages reported to date."
