Connectivity

From the very site that witnessed the birth of fibre-optics in 1966 - thanks to the pioneering work of the late Sir Charles Kao - Kao Data now provides access to high-speed, secure and resilient connectivity via multiple major networks.

Whether your compute is research and science focused, fintech or high capacity artificial intelligence and machine learning workloads, we have the correct connectivity to keep you ahead of the curve.

Kao Data welcomes Megaport

Kao Data Ramps-Up Hyperscale Cloud Connectivity by Partnering with Megaport.

Partnership further expands customer choices for low-latency, high-performance connectivity to cloud service providers including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud, IBM Cloud, Microsoft Azure and Oracle Cloud.

Megaport services will go live at the Kao Data Campus in Q1, 2021.

On-Net Providers

Network Connectivity

Our carrier neutral campus in Harlow, just north of London is ideally positioned within the new North London Artery and provisioned with high-density (442 pairs), ultra-low latency fibre routes. These connect the European Tier 1 markets of London, Amsterdam and Dublin, as well as provide direct connectivity to the Equinix LD5 facility in Slough, and Telehouse in London Docklands.

For the research and scientific communities prevalent within our UK Innovation Corridor location, we provide access to the super-fast Janet network, linking our specialist HPC data centre with thousands of research institutes and science parks both locally and globally

Connectivity, Peering & Dark Fibre

euNetworks’s Super Highway 1 lowers latency and links, from Dublin, via submarine cable, to Southport, then on to Manchester, London Metro (via Kao Data), Lowestoft and Amsterdam.

Kao Data’s partnership with Ai Networks and London Internet Exchange (LINX) provides peering through the LINX network and offers access to over 820 member ASN’s from over 75 countries. LINX members located on the campus benefit from improved routing control, increased capacity and redundancy, as well as the capability to peer with LINX’s global membership and its dual peering LANs, LON1 and LON2.

Through CenturyLink Kao Data is connected to one of the UK and Europe's premium networks offering 450,000 miles of fibre and connecting Kao Data directly to 150,000 on-net businesses and organisations.
