"We're a German-engineered colocation provider with a German CTO meaning we highly value redundancy in our data center infrastructures,"
Eurofiber's Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) network is designed on fully redundant fiber paths offering optical redundancy for clients in the maincubes Amsterdam AMS01 data center. It can be used for all data communication protocols, such as Ethernet, Fiber Channel, SDH and uncompressed video. Each service has its own light-path, which would make WDM highly secure. The combination of WDM technology and fiber optics enables speeds of up to 1.6 Tb/s, according to Eurofiber, giving organizations sufficient data transport capacity for the most demanding applications.
In its Frankfurt FRA01 data center, maincubes also aims at offering high-redundancy network options. Here, maincubes provides connectivity options that include BT, CenturyLink, Colt, DTAG, Entega Medianet,euNetworks, Gasline, Versatel, Verizon, and Vodafone.
The announcement follows the news that car-manufacturer Daimler has selected maincubes' colocation data center infrastructure to co-locate its new car-connectivity platforms. Daimler is currently transforming itself from a traditional automaker into a provider of mobility services. The car-manufacturer is also shaping 'intuitive mobility' with 'comfortable, user-friendly' products and services that would simplify their customers' lives and mobility.
The Mercedes E- and S-Class for example are now the centerpiece of IoT (Internet of Things) and equipped for vehicle-to-infrastructure communication, according to a recent corporate blog article by Jörg Sommer (https://www.linkedin.com/
"Enterprise clients like this require an ultimate network-redundancy for their business and use-cases," said Jeanine van der Vlist, CCO of Eurofiber.

We're excited to provide this major upgrade to this Eurofiber PoP in maincubes' AMS01 data center in Amsterdam and we're looking forward to further strengthening our partnership with maincubes."
