C4L’s high performance MPLS network coreTX is live, across 25 Data Centre locations
C4L’s much anticipated coreTX network is now deployed and fully live at its first 25 locations. The highly resilient 1-100Gb MPLS network which connects Data Centres across the UK has been deployed in parallel to the existing network and is ready to accept both new orders and existing customer migrations and upgrades. The first phase of 25 sites is focused on the Data Centre hotspots of Docklands, Central & West London and Manchester, it also includes our own Data Centre located in Bournemouth.
UK – June 12, 2014 – C4L’s Chairman Matt Hawkins and CEO Simon Mewett, hosted an invitation only launch event at Mercedes Benz World in Surrey this week, to mark the launch and to discuss the industry changing network with many of its existing customers. The network map of coreTX was shown for the first time exclusively to those who attended.
C4L’s high performance MPLS network, coreTX, is constructed with privately owned dark fibre and spanning PoPs across the UK, designed to deliver the highest capacity to the widest range of data centre locations within industry-leading timescales.
Utilising an all new Juniper Networks core, coreTX will meet the challenges faced by Carriers, ISPs, Content Providers and Businesses, when trying to create a Data Centre Networking Infrastructure. We have focussed not only on delivering a high performance network, but also on extremely rapid deployment, offering many services in hours and days, where historically they have taken weeks and months. With connections from 100Mb to 100Gb coreTX delivers scalability and we have reinforced this with extremely flexible contract terms making it capable of scaling on demand.
Matt Hawkins, Chairman & Founder of C4L, said: “We embarked on this project because we realised that the UK has been served by inadequate Data Centre network infrastructure and poor delivery times for too long. We have made this multi-million pound investment because we believe that UK businesses need to be better served to enable them to compete both domestically and internationally. coreTX meets this need, offering a competitive advantage to all sectors, especially in markets like Financial services, Media, Content and Cloud platform delivery.”
“It makes me extremely proud to say coreTX is live and taking orders as of today, and I am delighted to show the industry what a fantastic resilient inter-DC network this really is, thank you to the specialist C4L team for all their hard work.”
We utilised a wide range of powerful technologies and equipment solutions to deliver coreTX, based on highly resilient dark fibre, this includes DWDM fibre optic equipment, an entirely new Routing and Switching design and MPLS to all sites. All equipment is managed by a team of highly skilled engineers at a dedicated NOC located in our HQ on the South Coast.
