DUBLIN, IRELAND--(Marketwire - Oct. 10, 2012) - Sea Fibre Networks (SFN), owner and operator of Europe's most advanced sub-sea telecoms network, CeltixConnect, today announced the launch of the Staffordshire Gateway, an unrivalled interconnection point made possible by constructing a high fibre count terrestrial network from Balterly to Halmer End. At the Staffordshire Gateway customers can access a range of six fibre providers enabling customers with a choice of route, Service Level Agreement and cost efficiencies.
This strategic investment demonstrates SFN's commitment to carrier-neutrality further minimising dependency on single operators and ensuring the customer is always at the forefront of choosing the best suited solution design for their requirements. By constructing the Staffordshire Gateway, SFN bypass a longer (158km), more northerly route to London increasing diversity and lowering costs for customers. This newly constructed Dublin to London route satisfies demands for capacity and low latency driven by digital services and online gaming industries typically requiring shortest route connections and extreme speeds.
Tom McMahon, Sea Fibre Networks' CTO, said; "In the past customers rarely had a choice in backhaul provider at this location. However the addition of the Staffordshire Gateway ensures the customer is at the centre of the solution and can design a network bespoke to their requirements such as low latency (length), cost, existing relationships, or scalability."
