City Lifeline launches new THN interlink
February 2013 by Emmanuelle Lamandé
City Lifeline has announced its own diverse private dark fibre interlink to the Telehouse North (THN) interconnection point in the Docklands. With many international and independent carriers having established a point of presence at THN, this interlink will allow customers to interconnect quickly, easily and cost-effectively between City Lifeline’s data centre in central London and THN at speeds between 1Mb/sec and 10Gb/sec.
The new interlink allows for critical operations to be administered from two data centre locations, mirroring each other, which alongside City Lifeline’s recent ISO 270001 accreditation, heightens data security. The loss of either data centre location does not then cause a loss of service to the customer.
For geographic diversity, organisations with operations in Docklands often choose a London location for a mirror data centre, as they are moving away from the Docklands’ flood areas. City Lifeline is ideally situated, connected through the private THN interlink to London Docklands.
