Four existing data centres have been upgraded to enable 100Gbps and 10Gbps Ethernet services

SSE Enterprise Telecoms has connected eight new data centres to its 100Gbps network and upgraded four existing facilities. 

The connectivity provider is now connected to more than 90 commercial data centres across the UK.

The newly-connected eight data centres are located in England, Scotland and Wales, including ASK4 in Sheffield, AQL DC2 and DC5 in Leeds, SCC and Six Degrees in Birmingham, DataVita and Pulsant in Glasgow and Next Generation Data in Newport.

Those upgraded to facilitate 100Gbps and 10Gbps services are Global Switch 2, Interxion Hanbury Street in London, LD5 in Slough and Kilburn House in Manchester.

SSE said the combination of Optical 100Gbps and Ethernet 10Gbps services offers companies affordable access to high bandwidth connectivity and enables them to scale as required for business agility.

The option to access both Optical and Ethernet connectivity gives organisations the autonomy to select a solution that best suits their network needs, the company added.

 “With digital transformation in full swing, everything businesses do today depends on connectivity,” said Simon Willmott , Sector Director for Service Providers at SSE Enterprise Telecoms, Simon Willmott.

“The issue for companies is that finding a local, business-ready connectivity solution they can plug in to is not always easy. By providing Optical and Ethernet services that span the UK, we can better enable local networks that need to be connected nationally, providing businesses with the robust, reliable, business-ready connectivity they require.”
