Telehouse has announced a collaboration with Zayo to deliver a high-capacity and agile network across Europe.
Driven by the growing demand for fast
connectivity and hybrid IT infrastructure, the collaboration will connect
Telehouse’s network of European data centres on Zayo’s high-performance fibre
network to create a unique connected digital ecosystem and enable customers to
benefit from fast, seamless access to multiple cloud providers.
Zayo will deliver a robust cross-connect
infrastructure across Telehouse’s iconic London Docklands campus, providing
enhanced and resilient connectivity to customers globally. The company will
also help Telehouse connect Telehouse South – its newest data centre set to
open in February 2022 – into the Docklands campus, enabling customers to
benefit from the same low latency and highly-connected ecosystem of more than
800 connectivity partners for which the campus is known.
As a long-time partner of Telehouse, Zayo already has core network nodes in place within seven of Telehouse’s ten European sites, with the remainder to be added in 2022. Through the new partnership agreement, Telehouse customers can benefit from up to 100Gbps bandwidth across European sites, while Zayo customers can tap into the Telehouse ecosystem to benefit from stronger connections and unrivalled access to multiple cloud and connectivity providers.
“Our goal at Telehouse is not to sell real
estate but to build connected ecosystems and increase connectivity for
customers looking to connect across sites or to the cloud,” says Nick Layzell,
Client Services Director at Telehouse Europe. “By combining our secure,
connected ecosystem with Zayo’s innovative fibre solutions, we are not only
providing customers with a trusted environment to host their infrastructure,
but a reliable, scalable and high-capacity network to meet evolving business
With this partnership, Zayo is expanding its
network to cater to growing connectivity demands driven by the shift to hybrid
work. By establishing core network nodes and placing equipment within
Telehouse’s strategically located data centres, Zayo will strengthen its
high-speed global fibre network, while also enhancing its mission-critical
fibre bandwidth capability within the Telehouse data centre facilities.
“Telehouse was an obvious choice for us due
to its established reputation for building highly-secure and connected data
centre ecosystems and close proximity to Europe’s growing financial ecosystem,”
says Ed Wheeler, Data Centre Partner Manager at Europe Zayo. “Together we can
meet increased customer demand for connectivity to support hybrid working
and facilitate crucial connections for Zayo clients, including large global
banks and hyperscalers.”
