Stellium Data Centres and ITPS leverage Zayo Group’s network to win contract.
Stellium Data Centres has announced a global mobile network operator has collocated at Stellium 1 in Newcastle and ITPS in County Durham, as part of a joint hosting solution to optimise 5G services being rolled out across the North East of England.
Stellium’s alliance with ITPS and mutual relationship with Zayo was seen as a key differentiator by the customer. Both data centres are directly connected via Zayo’s networks as part of a Disaster Recovery and failover initiative, ensuring a highly resilient solution for hosting 5G in the region.
Zayo’s Point-of-Presence (PoP) at Stellium – making the Newcastle campus Zayo’s main IP node north of Manchester – was also pivotal in the decision with the mobile operator already having collocated at data centres in Manchester and Scotland connected by Zayo. Additionally, ITPS is Zayo’s regional managed IT services provider.
“We are delighted that our successful alliance with ITPS and strong relationship with Zayo has resulted in this significant customer win,” said Ed Bissell, Sales Director, Stellium Data Centres. “These two factors combined with our and ITPS’ strategic Edge data centre locations, offering the lowest carbon intensity in the UK, made for a highly compelling proposition.
“We can assure the customer of the lowest latency coverage and environmental footprint possible in the Northeast while also facilitating efficient backhaul of increasingly dense 5G data traffic. Stellium’s game-changing OCP-Ready certification was a further winning consideration.”Click below to share this article
