Frankfurt am Main, (PresseBox) - euNetworks (SGX: H23.SI), owner and operator of one of Europe’s highest capacity fiber networks and provider of mission critical communications infrastructure and services, today announced that it has signed an agreement with Computacenter in Germany. Under the terms of the agreement, euNetworks will deploy metro|nex, an integrated solution of dedicated private fiber networks in Frankfurt (Germany) and Tier 1 IP transit, to support the secure transport and replication of the data of, for example, some of Europe’s most prestigious financial institutions.
