Riedel Networks has announced a new agreement with Viatel that will enable the upgrade and expansion of the company’s European MPLS network. Viatel provides high-capacity services to strategic point-of-presence (POP) locations across Europe, and this latest agreement enables Riedel Networks' further expansion into Amsterdam.
"Viatel is an important network partner for Riedel Networks, and we are very happy with the company's reliable performance in the delivery and operation of network services," said Michael Martens, managing director at Riedel Networks. "It is valuable to us that Viatel owns the infrastructure and maintains full end-to-end control, and this fact made the decision to expand further with this partner an easy choice."
The Viatel advanced fibre optic backbone network connects eight countries, 35 cities, and more than 120 European data centres, and it has metro fibre reach into carrier houses, data centres, and internet exchanges. With data centres in Dublin, London, Amsterdam, Paris, and Brussels, Viatel owns more than 8,500km of fibre network infrastructure, which it has equipped with high-capacity optical DWDM technology and multi-service platforms.
“We are glad that we can grow with our customers and support Riedel Networks with its growth and expansion. We look forward to continuing our successful business relationship,” said Kerstin Dinklage, senior vice president of business development at Viatel.
