7 March 2003 -- LambdaNet Communications has announced the connection of Geneva in Switzerland to its international IP and optical network. The Geneva node is fully operational and is the latest of over 100 cities across Europe connected by network.
The Geneva node has been added in direct response to demand from existing customers, and requests from carriers and service providers looking to route traffic into and out of the city, a major European business centre.
This expansion is in line with LambdaNet's policy to only extend the network to cities where there is significant market demand and actual revenue streams.
"Geneva is fast becoming an important hub and junction point for the European telecommunications market. The city is globally recognised as a dynamic and truly international business centre. Network packet traffic to the city is soaring and the demand for high quality services is high," said Bernie Smedley, CEO, LNG Holdings S.A.
"LambdaNet will now be carrying much of this traffic over its international optical and IP network not only providing connectivity across Europe, but to the East Coast of America as well."
The addition of Geneva to the LambdaNet pan-European network means that it can now provide more of its customers with a comprehensive range of highly secure and flexible telecommunications services, from bandwidth, wavelength and Internet Transit to added-value VPNs.
