Over on the other side of the Atlantic, Kao Data is tapping euNetworks for some significant fiber connectivity. The two are working together on a high density fiber route to Kao Data's Harlow campus north of London.
Harlow is a convenient and strategic location between Dublin and Amsterdam for routes that wish to bypass London itself. euNetworks is building out new infrastructure at the duct level in Hertfordshire, adding a new key ring to its metro footprint. In addition to hooking up Kao Data in Harlow, building out into that area also puts euNetworks within range of opportunities in other London suburbs such as Enfield, Waltham Forest, and Welwyn Garden City.
The new ring will offer more direct connectivity from Harlow to Slough. Meanwhile, the company's existing depth in London itself will then give Kao Data's Harlow campus low latency connectivity to the other key bandwidth destinations in the London metro area, such as the Docklands, and West of London.
Since going private last winter in a transaction with Stonepeak, euNetworks has been relatively quiet on the announcement front. However, according to new tidbits on the company website, they are working on significant metro projects in Madrid, Milan, and Paris as well. Hopefully we will hear a bit more about those efforts in 2019.
