Metro Wavelengths

We can provide an optical wavelength network across diverse paths between our London data-centres.

Metro Wavelengths in Manchester

We are able to offer diverse wavelengths in Manchester:

  • Equinix MA1 (Williams House)
  • Equinix MA2 (Reynolds House)

We are also able to offer wavelengths to:

  • M247 Ball Green DC1 and DC2

Metro Wavelengths in London

We are able to offer diverse wavelengths in London:

  • Telehouse North (Docklands)
  • Telehouse West (Docklands)
  • Telehouse East (Docklands)
  • Interxion LON1/LON2/LON3 (Hanbury Street)

For each DWDM wavelength (both “east” and “west” directions) we charge £150 setup per site, and £150 per month per site. Customers would need to supply their own optics to the channel specified by FAELIX, or we can source and bill on the required optics for you.

We can also offer non-diverse DWDM wavelengths between Telehouse campus buildings for £500 setup, and £150 per month. Again, you would need to supply your own DWDM optics for your assigned channel.

Pricing excludes cross-connects to our racks in each location, and excludes VAT.
