5G Networks (ASX:5GN) says the deal will position DXN to take full advantage of 5GN’s combination of fibre and data centre connectivity solutions to offer customers a holistic strategy for business continuity.
According to 5GN its Dark Fibre solution gives partners the flexibility to decide “how, when and where to connect” without having to build their own network - and a key solution element is its IP Transit which provides direct peering with Tier-1 carriers, major backbone and content providers using low latency secure Internet access through national and international 5GN PoPs.
“5GN Wholesale is pleased to be DXN’s partner of choice. Like many of our wholesale customers, DXN are seeking more responsive, agile digital infrastructure partners to enable their continued growth and flexibility – and 5GN provides exactly that,” 5G Networks sales director Garry White said.
White says that modular data centres are portable, compact and can be easily deployed anywhere to support customers' needs, and the portable systems consist of purpose-engineered modules and components to offer scalable data centre capacity with multiple power and cooling options.
White sites projections by Valuates Reports that the modular data centre market is expected to grow at approximately 19% CAGR over the next seven years, driven largely by an upsurge in the adoption of cloud services by small and medium busines.
“At DXN-SYD01, our Sydney based data centre, we’ve built a facility that is geared towards flexibility,” DXN connectivity hub director Michael Smith said.
“Over the past 6 months, we have focused on customer centric solutions with bespoke options for connectivity and physical space. That is why 5GN has been such a strong fit for us as a strategic partner.
The announcement of the deal with DXN comes after 5G Networks recently launched its wholesale business in Melbourne earlier in May, designed to bolster its service capability to include data centre and connectivity services, IP transit, and cloud services for Australian ISP’s, carriers and Managed Service Providers.
