London, United Kingdom, 6 August, 2008 – Geo, a leading provider of bespoke fibre networks, today announced a refresh of their Geo.Metro product portfolio which includes the launch of Geo.ONE PLUS (1Gbit/s plus), Geo.TEN (10Gbit/s) and Geo.TEN PLUS (2 x 10Gbit/s), all scalable Managed Network Service solutions for businesses in London. The company is the only network provider to have deployed optical fibre via the Thames Water sewer system. Geo’s high speed solution has been designed for medium to large sized organisations that require a secure and reliable network to connect multiple sites across the capital. Geo also offers dedicated fibre for customers who prefer to manage and own their own network infrastructure.

Geo.ONE PLUS delivers a simple and easy-to-manage solution over dedicated fibre and offers an incremental upgrade path allowing customers to easily scale up as their needs change. Interfaces supported include: Fibre Channel, Gigabit Ethernet, HD-SDI.

In addition, the Geo.TEN Managed Network Service provides a stepping stone for customers planning to manage their own network. The 10Gb/s service supports Ethernet, Fibre Channel or STM-64 interfaces. Upgrading to Geo.TEN PLUS provides customers an additional 10Gb/s allowing businesses to increase bandwidth with ease.

Geo’s high speed optical fibre network in London provides a number of key benefits to its customers. Based solely on dedicated fibre and running through the capital’s sewer system, the solution is exceptionally secure and less susceptible to outages caused by road works. As businesses often require lower latency solutions, Geo’s dedicated fibre provides minimal end-to-end latency, making it ideal to support media rich applications and critical financial trading platforms to provide its clients a leading edge in an increasingly competitive marketplace.

“A network for London needs to be robust, flexible enough to meet today’s business needs, guarantee bandwidth and provide room for growth,” says Chris Smedley, Chief Executive, Geo. “Our SLAs assure clients of the highest possible level of support and to back it all up, we provide round the clock customer service. To date, Geo has never had a fibre cut in London and has the lowest network fault rate of any UK operator. We understand that businesses value the peace of mind that comes from knowing that their communications networks are able to cope with future demand.”
