Stellium has designed and developed a 40km metro fibre network – the only OPEN network in Newcastle. The multi-duct network is the first of its kind to be built in the city and connects Stellium’s datacenters to multiple long-haul and international carriers. It offers Stellium’s clients a low-latency, high-capacity connection to London, Europe and the US.

The network is designed to enable interconnects with other carriers, as well as access to the Stellium network. It also enables carriers to benefit from a rich revenue source at Stellium’s Datacenter Campus at the Cobalt Business Park. Key to this OPEN network are: the provision of access to BT exchanges for the use of the BT Openreach network and services; co-located splice chambers to facilitate in-the-field fibre interconnects; and a strategic business design which delivers commercially attractive solutions.
