London, UK, December 3rd 2012: Sentrum Colo, one of Greater London’s leading colocation providers is now fully lit with Next Connex fibre, enhancing available network connectivity; incorporating the Data Centre into a wider estate of sites inter-linked with Next Connex’s Layer 1 network infrastructure.

Sentrum Colo, a Tier 3 colocation Data Centre operator specialising in high end colocation is now ready to celebrate the lighting of Next Connex fibre into its Hayes data centre. Earlier this year the formation of a partnership between Next Connex and Sentrum Colo was announced to the industry and now to herald the lighting of the network a Christmas event will take place on 6th December 2012 in Central London.

From Q1 2013 a complete range of connectivity solutions will be available at Sentrum Colo including Layer 1, transparent Layer 2 and MPLS services and the supply of high quality Tier 2 IP Transit over a fully diverse optical network. Unique to the proposition is Next Connex’s ‘Open Access Policy’ , enabling over 200 carriers to be delivered into Sentrum Colo. This allows for access to a full range of carriers within the Data Centre to support flexible UK-based colocation services.

Graham Monro, Sales Director of Sentrum Colo commented: “Our partnership with Next Connex enables us to offer our clients best-of-breed connectivity and the flexibility to select from the widest possible choice of carriers. Combining a scalable network proposition with our industry-leading security and operational flexibility ensures that Sentrum Colo is ready to support any and all client infrastructure requirements.”

Service Providers looking to gain a competitive advantage through increased flexibility are now able to leverage the capability of Sentrum Colo and Next Connex to deliver racks and Layer 1 services within as little as 5 working days. This unprecedented speed of delivery coupled with a unique dedication to flexibility heralds the arrival of new opportunities to innovate within colocation facilities.

Our partnership with Sentrum is confirmation of Next Connex’s ongoing commitment to working with the highest quality Data Centres.
