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.
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.
