Geo Networks’ direct route halves latency for Coreix

London - 27 February 2014

Coreix benefits from Geo’s unique open access approach 

Geo Networks Ltd (Geo), the leading provider of dedicated fibre networks, has provisioned a dedicated fibre solution to managed service provider Coreix Limited (Coreix) to directly connect its two primary London facilities. Coreix now benefits from a secure, scalable route between its operations at Virtus, Enfield and the London Hosting Centre, Docklands.

Coreix needed to put a new connection in place having recently migrated to the London Hosting Centre from another Docklands site. The new direct route provided by Geo has reduced latency by 50% compared to the previous connection through central London. The dark fibre solution gives Coreix maximum flexibility and guaranteed bandwidth which it can pass on to its customers at a cost effective price.

In using Geo’s open access model, Coreix can multiplex connectivity services for its customers by adding its own equipment to the dedicated fibre. Coreix has the ability to scale the network in order to grow with future capacity required by its customers.

“Many of our clients are responsible for government contracts where security is a key concern. They look to us for compliant services. Geo’s fibre provides the secure, fast connection we need to meet their disaster recovery needs, as well as our own,” said Paul Davies, Technical Director at Coreix. “Geo was the only cost effective supplier willing to provide us with dark fibre between these facilities. We can utilise our own equipment to light the fibre and offer dedicated wavelength services to our client base between our primary data centre facilities, with guaranteed bandwidth and reliable uptime at a reasonable price.”

Chris Smedley, Chief Executive at Geo said, “This project demonstrates the success of our unique market approach. We’re pleased to help Coreix provide exceptional service and uptime to its clients via our network. Geo’s proposition delivers significant competitive advantage both in terms of flexibility and stability. The dedicated network model proves our commitment to giving our customers the opportunity to light their own fibre and resell capacity to a wider customer base, offering end-users cost savings and choice.” 

Geo’s network between Virtus, Enfield and the London Hosting Centre, Docklands is housed in the city’s Victorian sewer system. This exclusive location lends itself well to minimising the threat of physical fault, boosting reliability and security. The company has extensive points of presence across the capital, meaning fibre services can be deployed rapidly and with minimum disruption.
