Kao Data Invests in euNetworks High Density Fibre as Part of a North London Artery

Kao Data, the home of innovation and UKs leading entrant to the wholesale colocation market, has announced it is working with euNetworks, a Western European bandwidth infrastructure provider. This enables the delivery of high-density fibre and duct to the Kao Data, Harlow based data centre campus north of London. The new infrastructure provides unique routing opportunities, taking advantage of Harlows strategic location between core hyperscale campuses in Dublin and Amsterdam. It also offers fast connection to Slough, to the West of London, and Docklands in the East of London.

As the UK continues its strong position in the international data centre market, a series of significant investments in high-density fibre routes are underway to support hyperscale data traffic requirements. With the strategic location of this facility and evolving demand opportunities spanning from Enfield, Waltham Forest, Welwyn Garden City across to Harlow, this partnership and roll out of fibre comes at an important time.

Jan Daan Luycks, CEO, Kao Data stated, Massive data traffic increase is driving data centre market growth. It is essential that Kao Data is investing in guaranteed access to the most advanced and dense data capability. This attracts customers from the widest base, from hyperscalers, financial, retail, media and enterprise. Kao Datas recent OCP Ready status demonstrates our forward thinking in the market. Combine that with access to euNetworks fibre network and it is a compelling customer opportunity.

Kevin Dean, Chief Marketing Officer at euNetworks, said, We are focused on the delivery of fibre based infrastructure to data centres across our Pan European footprint. We continue to invest in our network footprint with high fibre count cable and duct. This enables the growing bandwidth needs of data centres and data campuses, and the customers needing access into these sites. The region is growing in importance for many of our customers, as they seek alternate routes between key hyperscale hubs. Were delighted we will be able to offer our multi-terabit bandwidth services at Kao Data and beyond.
