Sea Fibre Inks New Contract with euNetworks

Sea Fibre Networks, owner and operator of Europe’s most advanced subsea telecoms network, CeltixConnect, today announced a new fibre contract with euNetworks, one of Europe’s leading bandwidth infrastructure providers. From the end of June, euNetworks’ customers have been enabled with a low latency solution connecting Ireland to the United Kingdom on a completely diverse route to existing, older sub-sea systems.

CeltixConnect, at 136 kilometres, is the shortest subsea network linking Ireland and the United Kingdom, providing the vital infrastructure as a foundation for low latency bandwidth solutions. The new fibre network is a completely diverse route, enabling the transport of data from Ireland across to Europe.

euNetworks owns and operates 13 fibre based metropolitan networks across Europe, connected with a high capacity intercity backbone. Prior to deployment of a fibre based intercity link between London and Dublin, euNetworks leased capacity for this connection, thus they could not deliver their full suite of bandwidth services. With growing demand for their portfolio among existing customers, euNetworks has invested in a solution that gives them an end-to-end fully redundant fibre network. This coupled with their unique fibre based meshed city network in Dublin, delivers a unique connectivity proposition to the Dublin and European market. All euNetworks metropolitan markets are now connected with long haul fibre.

Diane Hodnett, Sea Fibre Networks’ CEO, says; “I am delighted to announce euNetworks as a customer. euNetworks is a highly regarded bandwidth infrastructure provider with a strategy and a portfolio of services focused on supporting the ever-growing bandwidth needs of commerce today. CeltixConnect is a key part of the infrastructure used by euNetworks to deliver a network that now links Dublin to London and Europe.”

David Selby, Vice President of Product and Strategy of euNetworks says “This diverse link between the United Kingdom and Ireland serves euNetworks’ customers in the financial services, carrier and media segments who depend on highly reliable, scalable and low latency connectivity services. These customers depend on euNetworks for a state-of-the-art network infrastructure like CeltixConnect that supports their future ambitions.”

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
