AFIBER, a leading provider of optical connectivity services, has selected to expand its service footprint with the maincubes AMS01 datacenter located in Schiphol-Rijk, part of the Amsterdam metro area. As from today, network and IT service providers can tap into AFIBER’s optical transmission services to deliver their services to maincubes customers, or connect maincubes to any destination within the AFIBER footprint covering 50+ data centers and 1500+ enterprise locations.

With AFIBER’s services, maincubes can now meet the high capacity connectivity demands of its customers, ranging from 1Gbps to 100Gbps multiples, while reducing average transmission latency by more than 50 percent compared to IP and Ethernet services. Cyber security solutions include cost-effective end-to-end optical encryption of high capacity network connections without impacting latency or throughput.
