Go Bigger

There’s more network traffic than ever. And the need for larger bandwidths will only continue to increase. Given that 61% of telecoms organisations see digital transformation as a priority for their customers. 


Now is the time to lead your own digital transformation and grow with the demand. That’s where Wholesale Optical comes in.

Respond to your customers’ needs

Many of your customers will benefit from Wholesale Optical. Especially those who want high-bandwidth, low-latency solutions for things such as: 

  • Large-scale disaster recovery
  • Storage replication
  • Cross-site virtualisation for data centres
  • Connecting data centres
  • Cloud application enablement
  • Core network extension/backhaul
  • UHD multi-media  
  • Real-time TV transmission 

An optical network you can rely on

Our network is the only one in the UK to offer 99.999% availability. And be designated as a Critical National Infrastructure, meaning the government view it as vital to supporting the economic, political and social life of the UK. For even more peace of mind, it’s CAS(T) accredited too. 


Therefore it’s super resilient and has capacity ahead of demand, giving you and your customers choice, scalability and connectivity. Without compromises.

Our network of optical fibre routes and diverse routing options means we can deliver high bandwidth connectivity to any part of the country. And so can you.

Now’s the time to adapt

Bandwidth usage has rocketed in recent months. Hardly surprising given the increase in homeworking. From 1Q20–2Q20 network traffic will grow between 28% and 31% compared to a pre-COVID-19 forecast of 6%. A trend that’s only going one way as the need for office space declines. 

So accommodating for every customer can be difficult. But when an optical network is totally tailored to them, it’s easy.

The high capacity of Optical is just part of our growing range of connectivity solutions. You can also tap into the simplicity of SoGEA or the flexibility of full fibre . We’re also upgrading the network to be 400Gb ready too. It’s a portfolio that’s second to none. One you can use to deliver what your customers need today – and want in the future.


Now’s the time to go bigger

Wholesale Optical in action

Connectivity, on an international scale

A customer with a unique requirement: to route international data traffic through the UK to various datacentres – and out to Europe. Due to our diverse routing down the east and west of the UK, we made it happen, and avoided using electricity pylons in Scotland thanks to our underground cables. 


The relationship with the customer continues to grow. Not only because of our effective solution, but our strong technical engagement and account management too. Now, even more links are being quoted for. 

The need to get data inshore

Data transfers can be tricky. More so when they’re going from an underwater location to a core London datacentre.  


Using our design teams’ expertise, we routed a connection no other supplier could. The customer was impressed. Not just with the solution, but the project management and delivery too. Leading to more orders.
