Business Internet provider A2B Internet and fiber optic supplier AFIBER. Together, we have successfully completed several projects in the field of business internet and connectivity and data center services in recent years: custom configured and with unparalleled expertise. A productive and effective collaboration that pleases both parties and that benefits customers and resellers.
A2B Internet is a Dutch and independent internet service provider. As an independent provider of fiber connectivity, AFIBER helps business customers and service providers with the delivery and management of high-quality networks between branches, data centers, Cloud providers and providers of network and IT services.
AFIBER’s fiber optic network provides coverage in a large part of the Netherlands and is connected to the main data centers and several regional and national fiber optic networks. It is precisely this good coverage that enables AFIBER to make an independent choice in the field of connectivity for their customers’ corporate networks.
“We provide services to ‘Digital First’ companies through our joint own network. Companies that prioritize digital working and fast connections. These include web, cloud and hosting companies, but also SMEs and large non-internet related companies and (semi) governments”, says Erik Bais, founder and CEO of A2B Internet. “The collaboration with AFIBER is very pleasant. Together we have already successfully completed several projects and we foresee a long and productive relationship”.
Three locations where A2B Internet and AFIBER have already achieved joint customer success are a student housing complex on the Van Heuven Goedhartlaan in Utrecht. A low latency connection for a customer between a Verizon and another data center and a fiber connection between a data center and an event location for scalable bandwidth.
Below is a brief explanation of these different applications:
Student housing on the Van Heuven Goedhartlaan
In Utrecht on the van Heuven Goedhartlaan, a large office building has been converted into a student housing complex. Due to the expected growth in data consumption at the location, now and in the future, AFIBER and A2B Internet have chosen to realize a Dark Fiber connection from the new complex to a nearby Dataplace data center. By choosing Dark Fiber, it is possible to guarantee a low latency. Ideal for E-learning environments, gaming and streaming.
A direct data center connection for remote backup solutions
A customer with equipment at a Verizon Netherlands location and another data center requested a low latency connection between the two data centers for storage synchronization and a remote backup solution. By using Dark Fiber from AFIBER for this connection, the customer can now make unlimited use of the fully available capacity for a fixed rate without variable costs.
Event location Symfonielaan, Nieuwegein
For an event location with the need to easily switch bandwidth on and off for temporary use, a fiber optic connection to a data center was chosen. Due to the event company’s previous experiences with the A2B Internet network during gaming events, A2B Internet was once again chosen for this location. Having a low latency and fast (short) routes is often necessary in the case of events and event locations and a specialization of A2B Internet.
AFIBER is an independent provider of fiber optic connectivity for business customers and service providers. We help organizations with delivery and management of high-quality networks between branches, data centers, Cloud providers, and providers of network and IT services.
