NGD Hooks Up Data Center With Openreach
LONDON -- Openreach, BT’s local access network business, has been selected by Next Generation Data to provide further high speed connectivity to its NGD Europe mega data centre in South Wales.
The deal will see Openreach providing additional fibre capacity and diverse routing to meet growing demand from NGD’s business and government customers.
NGD customers will have access to more than 200 communications providers selling Openreach Ethernet & Optical services to the end user business markets - including options from 10Mbps up to multiple 10Gbps services.
Openreach already provides high speed Ethernet connectivity to more data centres than any other provider in the UK, and it has recently signed a number of similar contracts with other data centre and storage providers. The company is one of the only service providers in the UK that can offer a fully resilient route into most data centres across the country.
