euNetworks, a provider of bandwidth infrastructure services in Europe, has announced the expansion of its long-haul dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) network to Stockholm. The company says it is delivering “a truly diverse solution with two unique paths running from Northern Germany to Stockholm”.

The company’s Eastern route runs via Copenhagen and its Western route bypasses Hamburg and Copenhagen, routing via Oslo. euNetworks has reconstructed its network in this important growth region based on customer needs and is also adding a new network path from Hamburg to Amsterdam, avoiding Düsseldorf. Bandwidth options available along all routes include 10G and 100G.

“Through 2016 we continue to develop our network in support of our customer’s bandwidth growth requirements,” said Kevin Dean, Chief Marketing Officer of euNetworks. “Guaranteed diversity to Stockholm with no convergence on Copenhagen and Hamburg is increasingly important to some key segments we serve across Europe.

“This network expansion delivers this element as well as direct connection into key data centres such as Interxion Stockholm, DigiPlex Stockholm and Equinix’s Stockholm Bromma SK1 site. We are also enabling peering at Sweden’s Internet Exchange, Netnod and we continue to offer our market leading ultra low latency solution euTrade, from London to Stockholm and Frankfurt to Stockholm,” he added.

Stockholm is a market experiencing strong bandwidth growth, says the company, with its geographic positioning making it a key connectivity hub for content and cloud service providers. Stockholm offers onwards access to both Russia and China, markets with large populations consuming growing volumes of content.

The company comments that, “this Stockholm development coupled with the Marseille network developments announced in February 2016, enables euNetworks’ customers to remain on the same infrastructure from Dublin, London, through to Paris, Marseille, Frankfurt and up to Stockholm with true diversity.”

At the core of euNetworks’ business is its deeply-meshed, fibre based city networks present in 13 cities across Europe. These networks directly connect over 280 of the key data centres in Europe and the company continues to develop their long haul network to enable a seamless experience between data centres across multiple cities.
