Connectivity Infrastructure is Crucial to Growth

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Dec. 5, 2011) - Connectivity has been in the news a lot recently, with reports of broadband disruptions for business and home consumers at peak times as well as government commitments to high-speed fibre connections.

While a lot of the focus is on consumers, businesses - particularly those with data intensive processes - are increasingly reliant on high speed network connections. For the Telecoms industry, Internet Service Providers and particularly businesses offering cloud computing as well as services such as hosting and colocation, being able to offer fast, scalable, cost-effective and reliable network connectivity from infrastructure providers such as Next Connex is crucial.

For companies such as financial or media businesses who use algorithmic and high frequency trading applications, media rendering and other data intensive Web 2.0 applications, these fast and scalable networks are necessary for growth and to achieve the best results within their respective industries.

Leaders in the infrastructure field are now building networks that offer guaranteed sub-2 millisecond connectivity between data centres and high capacity services that scale up to 100Gb/s in some cases. Lit fibre networks play a large role in these developments as they give very high performance, low latency connectivity, along with resilience, security and scalability which are of paramount importance to data intensive and high capacity businesses.

As companies are drawn towards cloud based solutions to meet constantly changing requirements, the demands on network infrastructure have grown rapidly. The requirement for resilient, diverse, low-latency and high bandwidth fibre networks has led providers to invest in dark fibre with a view to providing scalable, future proof infrastructure.

Next Connex are one such provider who have responded to the need for fibre networks, having completed a ring in the South of England linking London to Wales, Birmingham and Leicester, with more planned across the UK:

Nathan Bell of Next Connex says; "Following extensive planning and significant investment NCX are now ready to deliver UK wide connectivity. Our network is scoped to deliver a range of bandwidths from 100Mb to 1Gb, 2.5Gb, 4Gb and 10GB as well as the largest of requirements including 40Gb and 100Gb waves. We deliver cutting edge connectivity, connecting over 35 data centres including Europe's largest Tier 3+ facility, NGD Europe. Our Fibre backbone provides the underlying infrastructure for a variety of UK Businesses giving our clients peace of mind, secure in the knowledge that their infrastructure is resilient and future proof."

In an increasingly competitive and high speed world, companies are demanding high levels of resilience and capacity. The growth of solutions such as cloud services and virtualised hosting are making networks more complex. Providers of lit fibre and high performance connections such as Next Connex's colocation and cloud infrastructure solutions, will play a major role supporting the growth of progressive companies.
