Enet, Ireland’s largest wholesale, open-access network provider, has added six more data centres across Dublin to its national network. The additional data centres allow it to offer more options when it comes to dark fibre and managed bandwidth to its customers, and will result in increased connectivity for consumers.
Enet is now connected to 25 data centres. As the company continues to grow its network, there are also plans to connect more data centres in the next twelve months.
Broadband service providers will be able to use the additional data centres to connect with customers in areas where they may not have had a presence in the past. This interconnected network allows Enet to offer secure, reliable and scalable high capacity connectivity between these centres. It will also allow for diverse connectivity for mission critical traffic, peering with other 3rd parties, along with giving customers more ways to route international traffic.
The new data centres include four Equinix sites, Servecentric Blanchardstown and Keppel Citywest, while Enet is also connected to data centres around Ireland and in the UK.
David Eyre, CCO of Enet, said: “At Enet, we are always looking at ways to expand the network to the benefit of our customers. By providing high capacity data centre connectivity, we are ensuring that the Enet network can provide the type of solutions that our customers require – and that those benefits are ultimately passed on to consumers and broadband users.”
With over 120 employees based in either the business’s Limerick headquarters or its Dublin office, Enet currently works with over 80 different retail service providers to bring high-quality broadband and wireless to more than one million end users throughout Ireland.
