Geo Lands Swedish Media Deal
Teracom distributes radio and TV content to 99.8% of Swedish households and provides infrastructure and network solutions to broadcasters across the whole of Scandinavia. It has selected a dark fibre and co-location package from Geo, which provides every customer with a pair of dedicated fibres, available either as dark fibre or as the platform of a managed network. The dedicated fibre will provide Teracom with an infrastructure solution to distribute its customer’s platform from Chiswick Park across Scandinavia via Global Switch 2 in London’s Docklands.
In order to provide optimum reliability to its customer, Teracom selected a dedicated fibre network which provides full duality and diversification of both equipment and fibre. As with an increasing number of organisations, Teracom opted for a dark fibre network in order to retain maximum control over its infrastructure. It will now effectively own its own network, lighting multiple 1Gb/s, 10Gb/s or even 100Gb/s services, whenever its own demands increase or its customers require extra capacity. Unlike most organisations that purchase fibre on shared platforms, these private multi-gigabit services can be available in just a few days, as opposed to the industry standard lead time of 12 weeks. This allows Teracom to scale rapidly and at minimal cost.
