5G Networks, the telecommunication service provider has taken over a Brisbane data centre. The centre came from Pipe Networks and will bring on 250 racks and accessibility to 3 megawatts of power on a dual power grid of redundancy.
The ASX-listed company has invested $1.1 million for the data centre, which contains all operating infrastructure at the facility, making use of the money that comes from existing cash reserves as well as a rent-free period, which is included in the 10-year long lease.
Joe Demase, 5G Networks managing director said, “We are really excited to be exploiting our advantage of being a data centre operator and fibre network owner, I haven’t seen rack space and dark fibre product bundling from one provider before, but this is what our customers are asking for.”
“It allows our partners to grow with a fixed cost model which also includes easy migration as a result of our 6-month rack offer.”
After it comes out, customers will be able to immediately connect to the facility via a dark fibre network.
The new centre allows for a rise in 5G Network’s complete capacity to over 1000 racks throughout Australia, and this will also be beneficial for its wholesale channel strategy for infrastructure and data centre services.
