Glide connects Proximity Edge 8 to dark fibre ring

07 April 2022

Glide Group has connected its dark fibre infrastructure with Proximity Data Centres’ newly acquired Birmingham edge colocation site.

Spanning the entire city, Glide’s 30km fibre ring will provide Proximity’s Edge 8 facility access to low latency, highly responsive applications and services.

The dark fibre connection also provides an additional network route into Edge 8, allowing carriers and service providers to offer their own dark fibre and managed ‘lit’ connectivity solutions across the region.

“The availability of diverse dark fibre connectivity is vital to ensuring our edge colocation customers’ data and applications are always seamlessly and securely available to the users that require them,” said John Hall, managing director - colocation, Proximity Data Centres.
