WRN opens specialist broadcast data centre

WRN Broadcast has launched a data centre dedicated to broadcast and media clients. The centre, located in Vauxhall, South London, is a purpose-built facility, constructed in response to increasing demand from the company’s existing international broadcast clients, as well as new media companies such as Farncombe and IPWorldTV, both of which have signed contracts for rack space. The WRN Broadcast Data Centre offers broadcast companies and related technology and telco businesses the opportunity of secure rack space in London with the added benefit of broadcast expertise being onsite 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year. It provides the essential requirements of high-intensity, high-reliability data centres, including backed up electricity supply, air cooling system, fire suppression, triple ID process, Redcare Chubb intruder alarm and individually lockable racks. This is combined with WRN Broadcast’s content delivery network, guaranteed internet connectivity with diverse fibre routing, access to over 3000 PoPs worldwide and the ability to receive satellite signals from anywhere on the planet. Other optional services range from monitoring and uplink to archive and storage, all taken from WRN Broadcast’s existing range of broadcast managed services. “We built the data centre with broadcasters in mind, and we are excited to provide a unique offering and one that has driven real interest from around the world,” said David Treadaway, managing director of WRN Broadcast. “We look forward to working with some new clients, such as Farncombe and IPWorldTV, as well as further supporting our existing client base.”
