The telecommunications industry is evolving at lightning speed. The digitalisation of our society make high bandwidths and a reliable network indispensable for telecommunications providers, as their customers depend on their network, for phone calls and internet, working at the office, at home or on the go. The majority of both domestic and international telecom providers on the Dutch market rely on our fiber optic network, from mobile to fixed operators, carriers, cable companies and service providers.
Mobile traffic over a fiber optic network
An increasing share of communication is handled by mobile devices. Staff members want to be able to work anytime and anywhere with any device they choose. Consumers watch movies and listen to music online with various devices. These developments led to the 3G to 4G upgrade of mobile networks for all mobile operators. While mobile traffic remains mobile from a device up to the transmission tower, all data is processed through the underground infrastructure after being received by the transmission tower. This data then continues via the fiber optic network of Eurofiber Group. This is exactly why mobile operators choose our network to meet the increasing bandwidth needs their customers have, a development that currently led to over 50% of all mobile traffic in the Netherlands being processed via our network.
Focusing on connectivity
It is essential for telecommunications corporations that we focus on delivering fiber optic connections, based on an open network. It is because of this that one of the world’s largest internet exchanges chose Eurofiber as their connectivity partner. The clean separation between connections and services means that we are not a competitor for our clients in the telecommunications industry while they have full flexibility in offering custom-made solutions to their customers based on our infrastructure.
