(PresseBox) (Frankfurt, ) euNetworks, (SGX: H23.SI), Europe's foremost provider of mission-critical, extreme performance and capacity data services to large corporates, carriers and services providers, today announced that it has concluded an agreement with German ISP OpenIT GmbH (OpenIT).

OpenIT is one of the foremost German Internet Services Providers with core competencies in Internet and hosting services for business customers. Operating in one of the most demanding sectors, OpenIT required an IP solution that would meet the utmost levels of scalability, latency and availability to network and connect their customers in Düsseldorf. Taking these criteria into account, euNetworks designed IP|nex, a Next Generation suite of massively scalable, zero-downtime IP solutions in Düsseldorf, comprising 100Mbps IP transit for the fastest, most reliable Internet access in the industry.

Maurice Kemmann, Managing Director of OpenIT GmbH, said: "OpenIT required a highly reliable IP solution to connect our expanding customer base in different sectors around Europe. euNetworks was one of the few providers to enable us with highest levels of security and availability in the industry - warranting the entire solution under a single Service Level Agreement (SLA)."

"According to IDC, traffic is already doubling every 18 months nowadays. Bearing that in mind, OpenIT insisted on highest levels of scalability, flexibility and availability in their IP solution. euNetworks, through its ownership and operation of mission critical communications solutions was uniquely positioned to deliver on this," commented Noel Meaney, Chief Executive Officer, euNetworks.
