NEF Inc., a telecom agency selling dark fiber and high-cap lit services, has partnered with euNetworks, a European provider of network solutions, to create and design communications networks for corporations, carriers and service providers.
Through the relationship, NEF will source euNetworks’ low-latency optical connections between key interconnection and data center locations for U.S.-based companies wanting to connect within Europe as well via trans-Atlantic connections from the continental United States.
According to a press statement, the partnership will allow U.S. and European clients to use NEF’s expertise to build door-to-door private fiber solutions, including data center integration and network design and deployment.
“Our partnership with euNetworks enables us to create and deploy stable, secure networks, higher speeds and competitive rates,” says Michael Murphy, CEO of NEF. “With euNetworks’ world-class custom optical network solutions, we can satisfy the unique needs of domestic enterprise businesses, carriers and service providers who want to establish or maintain a presence in Europe.”
NEF designs custom connectivity solutions and provides access to more than 75 fiber providers in 48 states, 85,000 lit buildings and 1,000-plus data centers. To assist its clients in sourcing infrastructure, NEF maintains telecommunications databases, including FindADataCenter.com and FiberLocator. NEF will add euNetworks’ information to its FiberLocator database, adding an international dimension.
“euNetworks guarantees the highest levels of service and availability, and we were looking for a U.S. partner who embodies those same ideals,” says Barry Nolan, COO of euNetworks. ”NEF has earned the reputation among enterprises and carriers for reliability as well as for understanding the complexities of multipoint optical networks and data centre applications. For euNetworks, NEF was simply the right fit to represent our networks in the U.S.”
