Thus signs £12m contract with Farice

Thus, a provider of telecommunications services, has signed a £12m agreement with Farice, an operator of the underwater cabling network that links Iceland to the rest of the world, to provide it with high bandwidth network connectivity in the UK.

Thus will provide 200Gbps of capacity to support the anticipated growth in Iceland’s ‘green’ data centers and server farms that use natural geothermal and hydro-electric sources of energy.

The agreement with Thus is part of an initiative to globally connect Iceland to other data centers across the world such as New York, Frankfurt, Amsterdam and London.

Thus will initially provide two 10x10Gbps network connections stretching from Dunnet Bay, in Northern Scotland, the landing station of the Farice submarine cable, to London Telehouse. These connections will be used to carry data and internet traffic for Farice customers.

Thus will deploy a dense wave division multiplexing (DWDM) solution which will not only supply the initial capacity but will have the capability to expand in the future allowing Farice to use the full 720 Gbps of capacity available to them, as demand requires.
