London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) September 02, 2008 -- Geo, a leading provider of dedicated fiber networks, today announced that BIS Ltd, a data center and managed services specialist, has signed a 3-year contract with Geo to provide it with a diverse fiber route between three London data centers. This new connection will provide faster connectivity to BIS and its customers across their network.

Geo implemented a diverse triangulated fiber route connecting Telehouse North, Global Switch and BIS’ new data center in Greenwich; thereby connecting the latter into BIS’s own core 10 Gig MPLS backbone. The connection will ensure that BIS customers have access to all BIS data centers and will provide customers with individual data center to data center connectivity and replication services.
