Rome - 21 March 2011

Interoute connects to TelecityGroup’s Italian data centres.

Interoute, the owner operator of Europe’s largest next-generation network, has installed a fibre-based connection between TelecityGroup’s two data centres in Milan providing additional resilient and redundant links between the two facilities.

TelecityGroup chose Interoute to provide additional direct connectivity between its Italian facilities due to the resilience and flexibility of its next-generation network, while providing the capacity to support continued data traffic growth in Italy.

The agreement also enables TelecityGroup to provide its customers in Italy access to Interoute’s Fast Trade, an ultra-low latency financial network which offers the fastest data speeds available between European trading platforms.

Luca Beltramino, Managing Director, TelecityGroup Italy comments “Our highly connected, premium data centres are positioned at the heart of Italy’s rapidly expanding digital economy. By partnering with Interoute, which provides high speed broadband with extremely low latency, we are ensuring our customers can enjoy an even wider choice of connectivity options. In particular, the partnership will enable financial institutions located in our facilities with seamless electronic trading and low-latency connectivity to the Milan Stock exchange and the key financial markets across Europe, through one of the most extensive trading platforms existing today.”

"Our NGN is increasingly being used to connect numerous exchanges across Europe with guaranteed low latency and stringent Service Level Agreements," added Simone Bonannini, Managing Director at Interoute SpA. "With our on-net presence in 100 cities we can also offer our customers a wide choice of peering partners, flexible routing and high quality connectivity, all delivered from a secure networking platform."
