International network service provider, RETN, has announced the completion of a massive upgrade of its point-of presence (PoP) at EvoSwitch AMS1 - which doubles RETN’s networking capacity at EvoSwitch’s data centre in the Amsterdam area.
The network upgrade has transformed RETN’s PoP at EvoSwitch AMS1 into a ‘Super PoP’, expanding EvoSwitch’s already network dense connectivity options in Amsterdam significantly.
“With the current upgrade, driven by growing demand, we have doubled our capacity at the PoP,” stated Andrey Gazizov, CTO at RETN. “We can now easily increase our existing bandwidth up to 4Tbps and thus address needs of a larger amount of local and international customers seeking for connectivity from the Netherlands. We are delighted to be EvoSwitch’s connectivity partner for a number of years already. We greatly appreciate the work of their support team, fast delivery and reasonable price of the services they offer.”
The cooperation between RETN and EvoSwitch AMS1 started back in 2014 when RETN launched its DWDM PoP at this large Amsterdam colocation data centre. The PoP is directly connected to RETN’s multi-gigabit pan-European network forming a significant part of RETN’s presence in Benelux region.
“This just proves once again that Amsterdam is the world’s leading digital connectivity centre,” said Eric Boonstra, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of EvoSwitch. “Whether you are a large multi-national corporate or a smaller enterprise, it makes sense to co-locate in Amsterdam when establishing European data centre presence - because of the ease in connecting to the entire internet spectrum. We are happy that RETN chose us for their Super PoP, a choice not only based on the trust we have earned over the past few years but also with the knowledge that we can provide them with a rich selection of content, cloud services and connectivity.”
