MONCTON, New Brunswick, May 10, 2016 /CNW/ -- Fibre Centre is pleased to announce The City of Moncton, the "Hub City" of the Maritimes in Atlantic Canada, has established a network presence at 770 St George Blvd, in Moncton, the leading network-neutral data center and interconnection facility in Atlantic Canada. This is a significant milestone for the City as well as Fibre Centre evidencing the demand in the city and region for direct access to multiple cost effective, high capacity network services to stimulate economic development and business growth.
"The City of Moncton was proud to be the Fibre Centre's first customer," said Moncton Mayor George LeBlanc. "We're excited about the economic benefits the growth of the Fibre Centre will bring to our local business community, as well as future investors."
Added Ryan Sorrey, Director of Information Systems for the City of Moncton: "Our partnership with the Fibre Centre has provided our organization with several advantages, including enhanced reliability, access to higher speed network(s), and opportunity for increased connectivity between municipalities for greater collaboration, and the benefit of more direct connections to major 'cloud' providers."
"Network-neutral data centers that are focused on core network interconnections bridging submarine and terrestrial fiber systems are best situated in hub cities," stated Hunter Newby, Co-Founder and Partner in Fibre Centre. "This is as true for Moncton as it is for London, or New York and as a result Fibre Centre will follow in the footsteps of the major, established interconnection facilities in those cities."
Prior to the development of Fibre Centre there was no physical place to directly access all of the networks in and traversing the region thus limiting the reach and capabilities of the networks as well as the collective economic development of the businesses and people that operate and live within Atlantic Canada.
"We welcome the City of Moncton and are elated to have them establish a presence at Fibre Centre," said Uri Litvinenko, Co-Founder and Partner in Fibre Centre. "Their entrance in to Fibre Centre is a testament to Moncton being the "Hub City" it always has been and will continue to be."
