ESB Telecoms and SIRO Partner to Provide High-Speed Ethernet Solutions for Irish Operators

ESB Telecoms Ltd has partnered with SIRO to roll out a nationwide end-to-end ethernet network service. The launch of the new service offering– the Ethernet Tail Extension – will allow telecoms operators to provide their commercial customers with high-speed business connectivity.

This service will be made available in 13 urban markets across all 4 provinces and will provide national synchronous ethernet bandwidth solutions between 100Mb and 1Gb.

ESB Telecoms Ltd, the wholesale telecommunications provider, has provided flexible fibre and tower solutions to the industry for more than 20 years. In this latest product offering, fibre optic backhaul will be used to connect to SIRO’s network access and provide telecom operators with an end-to-end solution.

As well as high-speed connectivity, this new product will enable telecom operators to transfer data from their customer’s premises back to a data centre offsite without having to pay for additional costly infrastructure development or separate backhaul solutions.

The Ethernet Tail Extension offering will also allow telecoms operators to expand into new coverage areas and broaden their reach nationwide.

Gigabit Broadband is Essential for Business Operations

Commenting on the Partnership, Managing Director of ESB Telecoms, Rory McGowan, noted:

Irish business organisations are adapting their IT environments faster than ever before in order to address the challenges and opportunities created by an increasingly digital world. These companies require super reliable and ultrafast connections from their telecoms service providers to transmit the mission critical data that is becoming their lifeblood

Rory added, “In order to enhance our support to our customers and Irish businesses in general, we are delighted to announce the launch of our Ethernet Tail Extension product, in partnership with SIRO, which will allow our customers to adapt, grow and thrive in a changing world at the most competitive cost.”

Identifying the need to provide a nationwide solution, ESB Telecoms partnered with SIRO to maximise the provider’s expanding network. For end-users, the guaranteed speeds of 1Gb in both directions is essential for cloud connectivity, video streams and business continuity purposes

SIRO’s Chief Commercial Officer, Ronan Whelan, added “We are delighted to partner with ESB Telecoms to deliver our fastest ever enterprise product, providing uncontended speeds to businesses across Ireland. This latest partnership is another example of how SIRO is fundamentally driving competition in the Irish broadband market. Connectivity is the nervous system of the country and COVID-19 has further emphasised the need for reliable, Fibre to the Premises broadband. Our partnership with ESB Telecoms will enable us to further support the Digital Agenda in Ireland, ensuring businesses can perform to the best of their ability without archaic copper technology slowing them down.”

The Ethernet Tail Extension is now available from ESB Telecoms Ltd.
