Interoute scores transatlantic access

European fiber network operator Interoute has scored another major contract that analysts say confirms its position as a leading service enabler.
 
The carrier, which operates a 55,000km network in Europe, has been picked to deploy a next generation DWDM network for Telefonica International Wholesale Services (TIWS), as part of a partnership that opens the door to Telefonica’s transatlantic routes to the US and Latin America.
 
Interoute is setting up a 100GB backbone network that will extend TIWS’ reach to major cities in Spain, France, the UK, Netherlands and Germany.
 
Camille Mendler, principal analyst at Informa Telecoms & Media, told Telecoms Europe.net the deal is “mutually advantageous,” for Interoute, and confirms the fiber operator’s position as an “enablement partner for major service providers in Europe, Middle East and Africa.”
