Earlier this summer, Aqua Comms activated its Amitié (AEC-3) transatlantic subsea cable system. CoreSite confirmed that Amitié is leveraging native colocation and connectivity services at the CoreSite Boston data center campus (BO1).
The Amitié cable, which was built by Alcatel Submarine Networks, spans 6,783 km (4,215 miles) and has landings in Lynn, Massachusetts; Widemouth Bay, England; and Le Porge, France.
It is the third high-capacity system added to Aqua Comms’ transatlantic footprint and offers enhanced diversity in both the United States and Europe.
As one of the most interconnected buildings in New England, CoreSite’s BO1 data center provides Aqua Comms access to leading network, cloud and IT providers. Aqua Comm’s deployment in BO1 includes a secure colocation environment as well as diverse connectivity options through the CoreSite ecosystem. The CoreSite Boston facility offers Aqua Comms 100% SLA uptime, options to grow its data center footprint and the power capabilities needed for the effective operation of the trans-Atlantic system.
“CoreSite values our partnership with Aqua Comms and the critical role our IT infrastructure plays in helping their organization deliver global subsea connectivity services as well as improving transmission capacity in North America and Europe,” said Juan Font, President and CEO of CoreSite and SVP of U.S. Tower. “As demand for reliable, diverse and secure connectivity continues to rise, purpose-built data centers like CoreSite’s Boston facility will serve as the central digital platform where cloud and network providers along with enterprises meet to conduct business and provide optimal customer solutions.”
