Colt Technology Services has introduced US operations offering multinational enterprises self-service and on-demand bandwidth for agile connectivity to their European and Asian operations.
The connectivity is based on the Colt IQ Network, which is fully controlled by Colt in Europe and Asia, and connects 13 major cities in North America, including New York, San Francisco and Chicago, to Colt IQ Asian and European metro networks that are made up of more than 870 data centres and 26,000 fibre connected buildings.
The connectivity solution allows multinational organisations to boost bandwidth or quickly extend services to new locations, as the Colt IQ Network puts customers in control of their technology infrastructure, in real-time, across multiple continents. On-demand services can be provisioned in minutes direct from a customer portal and customers can choose when to turn bandwidth up or down.
On-demand bandwidth provisioning is available immediately to businesses in Europe and Asia, with the service due to be introduced in the US in the fourth quarter of this year.
Carl Grivner, CEO at Colt, says: “Colt has been disrupting the market for more than 25 years, from our beginning as the only challenger to the local incumbents in the City of London to today, where we are a global network challenger that thinks and acts differently in a rapidly consolidating US market. We know from experience that business agility and the need for real-time response to customers is vital for large enterprises and financial firms. Colt is able to deliver on both counts.”
