Eight out of ten global ICT firms have established their European HQs in Ireland and 10 ‘born on the internet’ companies have Irish bases that continue to expand their business by building large-scale datacentres to host and support their businesses. CeltixConnect is a key part of the infrastructure used by service providers and enterprises to deliver their data seamlessly from country to country.
Originally, there were two distinct sub-sea cable corridors in the Irish Sea between Ireland and the United Kingdom, namely the north and south corridor. The lifespans of these cable systems are in every case significantly less (c. 13-15 years) than their planned commercial life. The new CeltixConnect state-of-the-art cable system constructed by Sea Fibre Networks provides a unique, geographically diverse, central corridor for connectivity between Ireland and the United Kingdom.
CeltixConnect lands at East Point Business Park and the IFSC in Dublin, and connects with other fibre networks in Dublin. It also intersects with the T50 metropolitan area network that links key business districts, data centres and business parks in Dublin. On the UK side, it lands in Anglesey, Wales and connects with Manchester, London and on to mainland Europe.
This new fibre network more than doubles the previous data capacity between Ireland and the UK, supporting the explosion of online media. Just under 3 million photos can be uploaded per second on each fibre pair, which represents 173 days worth of uploading pictures online in one second. The ability to transport data from Ireland across Europe on a high fibre count, diverse, state-of-the-art network further supports the massive digital services industry in Ireland.
