Value - From the Ground to the Cloud • We offer a broad portfolio, ranging from physical network based products (the Ground) to virtual network-based services (the Cloud). • Our virtual network-based services perform better because we own and manage the underlying physical network. • Customers can choose how much of their ICT infrastructure they want to build and manage for themselves, and how much they want us to manage for them. • And because customers can change the ratio of what they manage vs what Interoute manages as their business needs change, they’ll always be able to get the ideal balance of cost vs efficiency vs performance that’s right for their business.

An operator lands in Europe and declares its independence from incumbent competitors, made possible by Interoute’s lit-fibre solution • Customer need: Customer had a strong domestic skill set but did not want to deploy in-house staff across a large European footprint. Interoute solution: The route consisted of four sections: • Timisoara – Vienna (x2); Vienna - Frankfurt (x2) Network deployment of 3700Km 70% of the fibre route was off-net. Project Timescales: Negotiation & Design 2 Months Delivery & Integration 3 Months Customer accelerated their time to market by 12 months and met their own high-capacity demands. Initial build: Interoute acquired and integrated: Fibre, Colocation & Equipment Ongoing Support: • Interoute provide FLM, 2nd and 3rd Line support; Customer NOC covers 1st line support; • Both NOCs monitor the network; • Interoute provide a spares warehousing and management service; • New services are provisioned using Customer’s 1st line and Interoute FLM.
A non-telecoms operator sought a pan-European solution for the construction and deployment of a secure network, which Interoute built and now helps to manage Customer need: Customer had a strong skill base at a different technology layer and needed Interoute to provide a layer 1 skill set, and to guarantee security. Interoute solution: A 9,000 km, Pan-European fibre network was provisioned – including acquisition of equipment sourced. The subsequent network is managed by Interoute. How was it built? About 75% of the network was on Interoute’s backbone; Interoute dug another 2% of the required route; Interoute acquired 3rd party fibre for the remaining 23%. The project, from start to finish, was 6 months. Initial customer equipment was integrated into a service package providing integrated Fibre, Colocation and equipment support. Ongoing Support: • New Equipment acquisition and provisioning; • DCN network Hands and Eyes; • Ongoing Spares management ; • Equipment Hands and Eyes Service; Customer retains NOC control of the network.
A European operator gets a major upgrade of capacity – fast and without additional headcount solution – with Interoute’s Optical Private Network (OPN) • Customer need: An operator was facing rapidly expanding DSL penetration, and thus surging backhaul capacity demand. But they did not want to deploy in-house staff across a large European footprint. And they needed a solution fast. • Customer required a solution that would quadruple their pan-European capacity while providing network resiliency. • Interoute’s solution: a diverse 800Gb Optical Private Network covering Bari, London and Frankfurt. With option for intermediate drops at 8 other cities. • The solution went from initial enquiry, through design, price negotiations, contracting, delivery and commissioning and handover within 5 months.
