Zayo will provide diverse dark fiber routes into the new location, providing connections back to Netwise’s existing core nodes in Telehouse North and Equinix LD8.

“We’ve used Zayo to deliver high capacity links elsewhere on our network for quite some time, so this is a natural evolution of our growing relationship. The diverse route options provided by Zayo will enable the resilient interconnection of our new London East data center with the rest of our core network,” said Matt Seaton, Senior Manager at Netwise.

“The newest collaboration with Netwise will enable Zayo to meet the growing demands for connectivity solutions in a major European hub,” said Yannick Leboyer, Europea CCO at Zayo. “Our unique, low latency fiber network will provide high-quality connections for service providers in the UK and across Europe.

The company currently has an 11,000 sq ft facility with 6,000 sq ft of white space across two data halls in central London, close to Bermondsey station.
