5G Networks has announced a new service agreement between 5GN Wholesale and modular data centre operator DXN, to provide business continuity capabilities through 5GN’s Dark Fibre & IP Transit solutions.
The deal is expected to enable DXN to leverage 5GN’s combination of fibre and data centre connectivity solutions to offer customers a holistic strategy for business continuity.
5GN’s Dark Fibre solution is designed to give partners the flexibility to decide how, when and where to connect without having to build their own network.
"Like many of our wholesale customers, DXN are seeking more responsive, agile digital infrastructure partners to enable their continued growth and flexibility – and 5GN provides exactly that," Garry White, 5G Networks sales director, said.
5GN’s IP Transit also aims to provide direct peering with Tier-1 carriers, major backbone and content providers. The service has the capacity for up to 600Gb of data, using low latency secure Internet access through national and international 5GN PoPs.
Adaptability is the main driver at DXN’s local data centre, according to DXN connectivity hub director Michael Smith.
“At DXN-SYD01, our Sydney based data centre, we’ve built a facility that is geared towards flexibility,” Smith said.
The modular data centres are built to be portable and compact, consisting of purpose-engineered modules and components to offer scalable data centre capacity with multiple power and cooling options.
According to Valuates Reports projections, the modular data centre market is expected to grow at approximately 19 per cent CAGR over the next seven years, driven largely by an upsurge in the adoption of cloud services by small and medium business.
