HERTFORD, U.K. -- Vtesse, the leading UK business communications provider, has today announced it has upgraded its services into the Telehouse data centre campus in London’s Docklands, adding Telehouse to its expanding multi-degree ROADM (Re-configurable Optical Add Drop Multiplexers) node network.
These upgrades mean Telehouse’s customers can now gain access to ultra high bandwidth solutions in the UK’s shortest possible lead-times, with 10Gbps connectivity available in just 15 working days – a drastic reduction on the average industry range of 40 to 60 working days.
Vtesse first partnered with Telehouse in 2007 when the company established its presence in Telehouse’s London data centres. The relationship has since grown, with Vtesse working closely with Telehouse and its parent company, KDDI, and their customers, to provide high bandwidth Ethernet, fibre channel and IP transit connectivity. The growing demand for such services has been one of the key drivers for these new ROADM upgrades. While ROADM networks have previously been associated with providing operational benefits to network operators, Vtesse has recognised how ROADM technology can also benefit enterprises with faster installation lead-times and a reliable means to support on-demand, consumption-based IT.
