24 FEBRUARY 2009 â�� euNetworks (search Lightwave for euNetworks) has launched a new high-capacity Ethernet network throughout Germany. The new network provides on-demand connectivity between Germany's major data centre sites, or directly to the customer's door. The network platform connects the south of Germany with the north and was developed to meet the ever-increasing need for mission-critical networking services from enterprises, financial institutions, carriers, and Web 2.0 providers.
euNetworks says its Ethernet services can now be deployed on-demand from over 20 data centres across Germany (Frankfurt, Munich, Stuttgart, DÃ¼sseldorf, Cologne, and Hamburg) or more than 100 data centres across Europe (Germany, France, the Netherlands, Ireland, and the United Kingdom). To enable these services on-demand, euNetworks has pre-provisioned multiple terabits of Ethernet capacity throughout their infrastructure. euNetworks says the move provides very fast performance and deployment speed. euNetworks' high-performance network also connects direct to the customer's door via euNetworks' 15 metropolitan last-mile networks.
euNetworks offers a suite of high-performance services on their network including 100% carrier-grade Layer 2 Ethernet, starting at 1GbE and scalable to 10GbE, and 2.5- to 10-Gbps wavelengths.
Meanwhile, euNetworks' all-optical end2end services are designed to ensure extremely low-latency performance -- milliseconds across Germany and Europe, microseconds across all metropolitan networks, according to the company.
euNetworks offers one fixed price for all on-demand services, regardless of distance or geography throughout the German network infrastructure as well as across Europe.
