Cable&Wireless Worldwide operates points of presence (POPs) in Interxion’s data centers alongside its own, ensuring resiliency for its next-generation network across Europe.

The Cable&Wireless Worldwide multi-service platform, running over its next-generation network, is well suited for multinational enterprises with European branches that require applications for VoIP, IP-VPN, managed IT security services, video conferencing, and performance management. The platform is also available for use by media and financial organizations, which can benefit from ultra-high-performance and high-speed infrastructures.

Interxion’s facilities offer direct access to 20 Internet exchanges, representing the busiest content aggregation and exchange centers in Europe. For customers requiring multi-site colocation in Europe, Interxion provides a single Service Level Agreement that applies across its entire footprint, supported by the European Customer Service Center, a multi-lingual, single-point-of-contact network operations center.

“IT-based collaborative applications are our core business. They enable our customers to globally connect their employees so that all their branches can work together with high levels of efficiency, thereby driving down costs. By using our multi-service platform, our customers can consolidate their telecommunications and data infrastructure while, at the same time, reducing their costs by centrally managing new applications,” explains Nic Cantuniar, head of carrier services Europe, Middle East, and Africa at Cable&Wireless Worldwide.

“Low-latency streaming of high-bandwidth applications requires not only a resilient data center infrastructure but also direct access to all relevant communication networks and Internet exchanges. Our scalable data centers allow customers like Cable&Wireless Worldwide to deliver the capacity and flexibility needed for excellent and energy-efficient IT infrastructure services and to continuously extend their infrastructure platforms across Europe,” says Peter Knapp, managing director, Interxion Germany.
