Colt Technology Services connects Stellium Newcastle directly with NJFX New Jersey over its new transatlantic backbone route
This latest extension of Colt’s IQ Network is part of Colt’s continued investment in global network infrastructure. The new transatlantic route gives businesses greater choice, security and flexibility as they seamlessly connect economic and commercial hubs in Europe and the US across Colt’s award-winning digital infrastructure.
Having launched as a new IQ Network location at Stellium in June 2022, Colt delivers on-net services to Stellium Datacenters tenants, and connects to commercial locations across Newcastle, joining the north-east region to Colt’s global communications network connecting 222 cities throughout the UK, Europe, Asia and North America. Colt’s presence at Stellium offers fully managed services of up to 40Gb for IP and Ethernet, and up to 400Gb Optical Wave products.
Colt’s new high-capacity, resilient backbone over Aquacomm’s Havfrue / AEC-2 cable from Stellium Datacenters to NJFX is a critical part of the expansion. The addition of a new transatlantic option over the Colt IQ Network provides customers with a greatly diversified route. By exiting the UK from Newcastle and entering the United States via New Jersey, Colt now offers a highly diversified path as an alternative Atlantic crossing.
The strategic move offers organisations such as capital markets firms and enterprises access to Colt’s wider portfolio of digital services and solutions, supporting their global digital transformation journeys and helping them accelerate plans for growth.
Newcastle Meets London with the NCL-IX, LINX (London Internet Exchange) and BSO Strategic Partnership
Stellium Datacenters, home of the Newcastle Internet Exchange (NCL-IX), and the London Internet Exchange (LINX) work together to provide digital solutions for businesses to enable ‘digital transformation.
Our joint solutions are proving popular as historically, sustainable colocation, global connectivity and wholesale bandwidth solutions have been problematic with huge cost implications.
The proposition has been tailored specifically to industries served by Stellium and facilitates access to the UK’s newest submarine cables from Aquacomms and Altibox/NO-UK connecting to the Nordics and North America with the lowest latency available.
Beyond this, with our multiple carrier partners ultra-low latency networks, any business located at either LINX in London, Manchester or Scotland or NCL-IX in Newcastle, can reach global destinations without the overheads or time taken to buy direct connectivity between sites.
