Custom Connect facilities is to centralizes an organization’s IT operations and equipment, and where it stores, manages, and disseminates its data. Data centers house a network’s most critical systems and are vital to the continuity of daily operations. Consequentially, the security and reliability of data centers and their information is a top priority for organizations.
are cloud based datacenter resources designed to serve its customers similar to what your own datacenter is providing such as server capacity, energy, security, cooling and bandwidth. The combination of own data centres and commercial data centres is currently the most common configuration. Of course this is only logical because of the substantial investment required in energy, security, cooling, etc, for a data centre. Outsourcing to groups who have made this their core business speaks for itself. The more the datacenter is virtualized the more often virtual datacenter capacity is being used. Just as you would offer in your own datacenter, you can make these virtual vatacenter resources available to applications and to the business. However the connectivity, in other words cloud connectivity, in between is becoming crucial
Everything becomes a Service and will move to the Public Cloud! Looking at the Infrastructure (IaaS) level, Virtual Machines and Virtual Local Area Networks (VLAN’s) were about the first resources that came available through hosting en cloud offerings. Other network devices such as firewalls, routers and load balancers followed. Software Defined Networking and Datacenter are nowadays the way to go. No matter what you decide either a private cloud a public cloud or a combination, a hybrid cloud, finally your IT infrastructure and associated application will move to the cloud.
The virtual metro datacenter will evolve towards; the datacenter as a market place and the carrier as a datacenter service provider.
Connectivity plays a central role in all cases. In the development of the carrier-neutral datacenter three consecutive phases can be seen.
Phase 1: Long live tradition. At this stage the datacenter provides safe shelter, power, cooling and connectivity
Phase 2: The virtual datacenter. Datacenters of the same provider within an urban area are linked to each other and some facilities, like connectivity, are consolidated. With this the Netherlands follows the developments in the US where this is generally good.
Phase 3: Let a thousand flowers bloom. The datacenter becomes the marketplace for demand and supply of all kinds of IT and related services.
At Custom Connect we see that specifically the larger datacenters are now making the transition from phase 1 to phase 2. Furthermore, in recent years we have seen a strong emergence of the carrier hotels, the data carrier exploited datacenters. These are now included in the cloud and services portfolio of the carriers. Together this provides a strong proposition. The virtual metro datacenter Datacenters have always had a strong physical dimension: stones, energy, cooling, connectivity. These are individual buildings with each a physical infrastructure.
MPLS – Multi Protocol Label Switching is a standardised protocol and comprehensive networking technology that blends the best of IP routing and switching. Combine any-to-any connectivity with high performance, security, flexibility and scalability. Strategically integrate offices, data centers and clouds in over 250 countries into a single, seamless global solution. What makes all this possible?
Dark Fiber is unlit optical fiber that lets you build your own optical fiber network. Unlike managed services offered by most carriers, you are free to use the dark fiber in a way that best suits your needs. For years, Custom Connect has helped a a wide variety of organizations build their own private fiber networks. In combination with our CustomTrust portfolio, we can deliver bespoke and fully managed networks that are tailored to your needs.

Custom Connect has broad experience in designing, building and supporting long-haul microwave and millimeterwave wireless connectivity services. These services are ideal for connecting remote locations where fixed line connectivity is less available or when low-latency connectivity is required between Financial Exchanges.
Ethernet connectivity. Familiar and proven technology. When you rely on the power of Ethernet to connect offices and high-bandwidth applications across your business, your network feels the same whether your locations are in another city or across the globe.
A wavelength is light at a particular frequency or color that can be multiplexed to offer multiple paths through a single fiber strand. This fills the gap between dark fiber and traditional private lines or capacity services.
Microwave refers to electromagnetic energy having a frequency ... In communications, a large allowable bandwidth translates into high data speed.
Millimeter wave (also millimeter band) is the band of spectrum between 30 gigahertz (Ghz) and 300 Ghz. Researchers are testing 5G wireless broadband technology on millimeterwave spectrum.
