Interoute opens Trans-Pacific network route between Hong Kong and Los Angeles

Expansion signals next stage of Interoute’s global networked cloud development
 

Los Angeles  & London, 27 August 2015 - Interoute, owner operator of Europe’s largest cloud services platform, today announced that it has taken the final step in creating a fully meshed global network with two new diverse routes between Los Angeles (LA) and Hong Kong. With this new extension across the Pacific, Interoute’s low latency network now circles the globe, and will provide Interoute customers with faster access between the USA and Asia regions.

Interoute is now able to provide its enterprise customers with low latency pan-Pacific services, all built on its own entirely private and secure MPLS network. Provision has also been made for reliability, with the simultaneous deployment of two diverse routes to cover the distance.

Interoute has integrated its MPLS network with its cloud infrastructure platform Interoute Virtual Data Centre (VDC), which is designed on a global scale to make doing business across multiple markets simple and easy. Today’s announced network expansion follows the launches of the Interoute IP PoPs and VDC zones in LA1 and Hong Kong2, enabling companies to build their own private and Hybrid cloud infrastructures globally, all interconnected securely over high speed MPLS network. 

Mark Lewis, VP Communications & Connectivity at Interoute, said: “Our investment in new links between Asia and the USA signifies the next stage in the development of Interoute’s global networked cloud. Our customers wishing to expand across the globe need a network and services platform that truly supports their digital businesses. With the launch of these new connections, Interoute is delivering the network capacity and service platforms that enterprises need to grow across the Pacific and around the world.”

The new route goes live in September 2015.
