- Massively scalable Ethernet connectivity between RTL interactive's sites in Frankfurt and Amsterdam
- Consumer demand for rich media services drives need for high performance euNetworks solution
- On-demand provisioning possible through massive capacity pre-provisioned on euNetworks' all-optical pan-European infrastructure
euNetworks (SGX: H23.SI), Europe's foremost provider of mission-critical, high-performance networking solutions, today announced a deal to provide RTL interactive GmbH (RTL interactive) with a high performance Ethernet solution connecting RTL interactive's Frankfurt datacenter with a second site in Amsterdam.
Be it watching videos on clipfish.de, visiting RTL's main website RTL.de or viewing videos on-demand via RTLNOW.de, all of these products are developed and managed by RTL interactive which is headquartered in Cologne (Germany). The company focuses on digital, transaction-based and interactive business models and is responsible for a multitude of products within the Mediengruppe RTL Deutschland such as online media, mobile entertainment, licensing and gaming. With rapidly expanding user demand driving bandwidth requirements, and a burgeoning demand for 24x7 availability around the world, RTL interactive required a secure and highly scalable solution to connect their equipment in Frankfurt with their second datacenter in Amsterdam. Taking these criteria into account, euNetworks designed and deployed ether|nex, an Ethernet-based networking solution to securely transport vast amounts of data and content. ether|nex is provisioned on-demand on dedicated fiber for minimum complexity and cost but maximum speed and virtually limitless capacity for instant scalability.
André Knegt, Head of the Infrastructure Department at RTL interactive GmbH, commented their decision for euNetworks as follows: "RTL interactive needed a highly secure and massively scalable networking solution from Frankfurt to our internet exchange in Amsterdam, supporting the global delivery of content and data. euNetworks not only delivered the required solution in exceptionally short time but also at highest standards with regards to security, reliability and scalability. We are very satisfied with the solution that euNetworks provided."
Barry Nolan, Chief Operating Officer of euNetworks, added: "We are delighted that RTL interactive has chosen euNetworks for their networking solution. ether|nex is delivered on-demand via euNetworks' pan-European network infrastructure, uniquely providing the mission-critical and highly scalable solution that RTL interactive needs for their current and future requirements."
