Wednesday, September 28, 2011 : Improved network capabilities for a superior end-user experience
Online gambling operator bet365 has chosen Geo Networks to provide a national optical fibre network to facilitate a superior end-user experience, better handle its network demands, ensure fast, reliable distribution of data and rapid reconciliation of millions of daily transactions.
The ten-year deal will see the Geo-managed network deployed between bet365's key UK data centers in Stoke, Manchester, Heathrow and London.
“As player numbers continue to grow, we must find innovative ways to make sure our infrastructure can meet the demand today, and the growth we anticipate in the future,” said Neil Selby, head of Networks and Security for bet365.
Chris Smedley, Geo Networks chief executive, said: “The eGaming industry presents a huge area for growth as it needs a significant amount of network capacity. This is a new breed of customer for Geo and we are very much looking forward to developing our experience in the eGaming industry.”
The network is expected to go live at the turn of the year.
