100Gb network link for new Aberdeen data centre - Network Cables

A £5 million data centre, currently under development in Aberdeen, is to be boosted by a state-of-the-art network cable connection.

The link to Enterprise Telecoms' 100Gb UK-wide network will ensure brightsolid’s new data centre is able to meet the cloud computing needs of its oil and gas sector clients.

SSE Enterprise Telecoms, a subsidiary of Perth-based energy giant SSE, has confirmed the £1 million network connection project will go ahead, reports the Courier.

According to SSE, the data centre initiative as a whole could generate £120 million for the local economy.

The involvement of offshore network operator Tampnet in the scheme means connectivity will be extended to facilities based in the North Sea.

"The partnership between ourselves, brightsolid and Tampnet will provide huge advantages for Aberdeen and the oil and gas industry from the moment the data centre opens its doors,” said SSE Enterprise telecoms managing director Colin Sempill.

"Brightsolid will act as a critical data centre hub, and our ultra-resilient network will provide the roads to and from it, made more significant by the co-operation of Tampnet, which extends this connectivity even further afield."

He said SSE is committed to investing in the future of UK telecommunications.

This latest project will serve to get customers connected quicker, to a reliable network, that will serve demand both now and in the future, Mr Sempill claimed.

Brightsolid chief executive Richard Higgs said the new data centre would be "world-leading".

“Our mission is to deliver technical innovation with a personal service, and together with SSE Enterprise Telecoms’ shared ethos, the communications service we are delivering will be world class," he added.

Mr Higgs said it will be somewhere that can facilitate the growing trend to migrate assets to the cloud without concern for capacity, security or speed.
