The official launch of enet’s fibre infrastructure at Westpark Shannon, took place on Friday November 13. enet CEO Conal Henry said, “This launch marks the completion of the final piece in the jigsaw for local telecoms infrastructure in Westpark.”

He explained, “enet operates fibre optic infrastructure nationwide, including the Ireland’s Metropolitan Area Networks (MANs) and we are delighted to now announce our new fibre network in Westpark. Operated on an open-access basis, this infrastructure will facilitate end users in the park through a wide variety of service providers, such as local carrier, BBnet. Significantly, enet has engineered two distinct geographical fibre paths into Westpark, offering service resilience to end-users.”

To really embrace open-access enet operate a wholesale-only model, and don’t retail telecoms service to end-users. They are carrier-neutral and concentrate on the provision of physical infrastructure, leaving the service provision to the 60 plus different service providers who use their own networks nationally to deliver high quality, high bandwidth retail services.

Brian O’Connell, CEO, Westpark said, “We are delighted to now have enet fibre infrastructure in place in both Westpark Telehouse and Data Centre.  This gives Westpark and its clients full, flexible and resilient access to multiple carriers.

“Westpark was the first business campus in Ireland to provide a pre-construction, bespoke design for its IT infrastructure.  An investment of 1.5 million Euro resulted in the provision of a Telehouse and a Data Centre, dual resilient routes to and from campus and also internal multiple connectivity to both current and future buildings. There is 11km of ducting within Westpark Campus, so it is fully future proofed!”

In 2007, Westpark delivered the first broadband service to its customers provided by wireless connectivity from ESBN and operated by Digi Web. Eight years later the Campus IT infrastructure is complete and can be accessed by whatever provider or band width our current or future customers may require.”

A high-profile, dependable and sophisticated infrastructure partner, enet operates networks for telecoms services to an extensive list of blue-chip companies such as Amazon, Apple, Cisco, Coca Cola, Dell, and VM Ware, as well as local companies such as CloudCARDS and WARS (Work Area Recovery Solutions).

“For high bandwidth, choice, resilience and a world-class Service Level Agreements, enet fibre is the perfect solution,” concluded Conal Henry.
