Fiber-optic network services provider Interoute says it has created a 2x100-Gbps fiber network connection for Sophia Connect. The route, which Interoute says it brought up in three weeks, will enable Sophia Connect to offer its wholesale customers connectivity from the Balkans, Caucasus region and the Middle East to western Internet hubs.

The fiber-optic network connection runs from Sofia, Bulgaria to Frankfurt, Germany through some of the major network hubs (including Budapest, Bratislava, Vienna, Prague and Munich) on Interoute's pan-European network (see "Interoute adds DTN-X to 100-Gbps pan-European fiber-optic network"). Interoute says it designed and packaged the connectivity for Sofia Connect within three days, then brought it into service in three weeks.

"We have worked with Interoute for four years and our relationship continues to flourish. Interoute consistently produces innovate services and is able to commit to deliver complex solutions over short lead times, which is exactly what we needed," said Yuliy Nushev, managing director and owner at Sofia Connect. "Speed and flexibility are vital for our operations and at all stages of the deployment we were confident that these commitments would be met."
