London, (PresseBox) -, the leading Internet Service Provider and systems integration specialist, has today announced the opening of a new regional data centre, which will bring hyper-fast broadband access and next-generation telecoms services to businesses in the Thames Gateway.

>From a regional hub in Docklands,'s new Metro Node Data Centre will transmit data at ultra-high speeds via a fat pipe, delivering high quality, locally managed services to businesses in the area. In deploying the Metro Node to gain broadband access, Thames Gateway customers also have the option to host their servers at a secure location, meaning they benefit from offsite backup and other co-location advantages.

"Our Metro Node and high-speed fibre network, enables to offer the same level of next generation products and services that we have provided the likes of Vodafone, Siemens, Ferrari and other Thames Valley businesses for the past ten years," said James Sumsion, Managing Director of "The regional Point of Presence (POP) in the Thames Gateway means we can provide tailored solutions to businesses in the region and essentially, build value into an organisations' communications infrastructure."

"Linking the Metro Node data centre to the hub in Docklands means our Service Level Agreements (SLAs) will be substantially enhanced, connection speeds will be tripled and customer costs will be significantly reduced. As a result we can offer new and existing customers in the Gateway our market-leading, locally managed, products and services, which can be seamlessly integrated into an organisation's telecoms operations."'s advanced broadband solutions will be delivered into the Thames Gateway in partnership with ZyXEL, the leading provider of complete broadband access solutions.
