Superloop connects with NextDC Canberra data centre Featured


Dark fibre connectivity services provider Superloop has expanded its high-speed inter-capital colocation network with a new point of presence (PoP) at NEXTDC’s Canberra data centre.

Superloop chief technology officer Ryan Crouch says the expansion gives customers increased access to fast and secure network connectivity.

The addition of Canberra to Superloop’s existing connections at NEXTDC data centres in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth completes the company’s national footprint with NEXTDC.

Crouch says the nationwide deployment of capital city infrastructure gives Superloop the ability to immediately service customers and channel partners across all Australian markets.

“I’ve worked with NEXTDC since its first facility, B1, opened in Brisbane. This partnership between Superloop and NEXTDC has resulted in continual growth in colocation and network services for customers, and has seen our businesses grow in tandem,” Crouch says.

Adam Scully, group executive – Sales and Marketing, NEXTDC, said, “We have a strong relationship that really benefits the end-customer with the reliability of NEXTDC data centres and the nationwide scope of Superloop’s network.

“We’re looking forward to continuing to work with the Superloop team on its path of growth well into the future.”

Just last month, Superloop announced it had ramped up its expansion and network coverage in Singapore with 30 enterprise buildings now connected to its dark fibre infrastructure.

High-profile entrepreneur and founder and chief executive of Superloop, Bevan Slattery, said the company’s advanced fibre networks had answered “the increasing demand for reliable, high-speed connectivity solutions across the Asia Pacific region”.

And, Slattery said the expansion in Singapore demonstrated Superloop's commitment to extend the core network to commercial buildings across Singapore, such as those in the central business district and the key hubs of Fusionopolis, Mediapolis, Biopolis, Mapletree Business City and Science Park.
