Telehouse East Opens in London's Docklands

Secure data communications facilities company Telehouse Europe has opened a new building in London Docklands.

Called Telehouse East it houses sensitive equipment in a protected environment, with excellent communications from this major physical hub of the Internet in the UK.

"Driven by customer demand, the construction of the new centre will secure the expansion plans of our current clients," said Michelle Reid, manager of sales and client support for Telehouse.

"The significant investment we have made in purpose-built facilities enables Telehouse to provide existing and potential customers with a truly secure and resilient operational environment," added Reid. "A testament to this commitment is the fact that for some of our clients, Telehouse is their only operational presence in the UK."

The additions to the Telehouse operation are certainly substantial. The company has created a secure campus of technical buildings which have a single point of entry from within a central administration pavilion.

The new facility and the administration centre together add a gross area of over 9,900 square metres to the original Telehouse building, now called Telehouse North.

For UK ISPs, Telehouse acts as a resilient network node and neutral point of interconnection to each other and the rest of the world. It houses equipment suites and offers a complete range of facilities management services.

Telehouse also operates a smaller facility in Paris.
