Sea Fibre Connects Dublin and Amsterdam

Sea Fibre Networks, which owns and operates the CeltixConnect sub-sea cable between the UK and Ireland, has activated a new route from the greater Dublin area to Amsterdam.  The link, which uses selected third party fibre, delivers an end-to-end fibre solution from Dublin to Amsterdam, via London, while remaining carrier-neutral.

Amsterdam's AMS-IX carries an average 1.25 Tbps with a year high peak of 2 Tbps.

Dublin is a central Internet hub in Europe, hosting major data centres of Google, Amazon and Microsoft.
