Enet has boosted Cork’s attractiveness as a business location by providing unlimited connectivity to Cork Internet eXchange (CIX).

Responsible for managing the high speed fibre infrastructure of the State’s Metropolitan Area Networks (MANs), Enet is linking CIX, the hub for both inbound and outbound traffic in the region, to CIX’s back up and disaster recovery location at the National Software Centre (NSC), also in Cork.

This new, unlimited connection ensures that Cork city can meet all local market demand for fast and secure global Internet connections, while providing geographic diversity between the two sites to offer protection against potential disruption.

Jerry Sweeney, CEO of CIX, comments: “CIX requires fast, reliable connectivity to its back up and disaster recovery capability located at the NSC. This new circuit satisfies that requirement. This connection enables us to grow to meet customer requirements while simultaneously keeping traffic on our private network, thus ensuring data protection. Coupled with the arrival of Hibernia Express and INEX Cork at CIX, this new Enet connectivity further enhances our position in the market.”

Conal Henry, CEO of Enet, adds: “We understand the huge economic benefit that data centres have on regional Ireland in terms of attracting hi-tech and multi-national business to cities like Cork. Our provision of infinite capacity to CIX means the area has world class connectivity and facilities that allow it to compete on a global level. This is hugely beneficial for CIX as it future proofs its footprint.”

Cork is now the in-demand city for large corporate organisations such as Apple and NGINX along with many start-ups, thanks to its growing infrastructure and highly skilled workforce. The city is growing rapidly as many new IDA and Enterprise Ireland jobs are created.
