The company said the jump from 100G to 400G is both a significant step forward in capacity and enables it to offer broader wavelength options to customers.
Exa Infrastructure, the company that last month took over GTT Communications’ infrastructure, has upgraded two-thirds of its network to 400Gbps.
Martijn Blanken has crossed the world from Sydney to take charge of what’s now Exa Infrastructure. Under new ownership, it used to be Interoute, Hibernia Networks and other companies. He talks to Alan Burkitt-Gray
EXA Infrastructure, the most expansive dedicated digital infrastructure platform connecting Europe and North America, today unveiled a new brand and outlined its intentions to meet rising customer demand for core services after its acquisition by I Squared Capital.
The company was created after I Squared Capital completed its acquisition of the assets of Interoute, Hibernia and Kpn. The "newco" has a 100 000 km fibre network connecting 300 cities. CEO Blanken: "We are determined to become the undisputed market leader in this sector".
In this deal, I Squared Capital essentially gains “selected network and data center assets accumulated from several GTT acquisitions, including Interoute, Hibernia, and KPN International,” the seller says.
After nearly a year of waiting, GTT Communications has finally closed the sale of its infrastructure division to I Squared Capital, resulting in the creation of a new company called EXA Infrastructure.
The new company, which will be based in London, serves customers across 103,000 route kilometres of fibre that connects 300 cities. The network includes dense metropolitan footprints, connected by multiple inter-city routes and pan-continental subsea cables.
