ITV has selected Geo Networks to deploy a fibre optic network between its data centre sites in Slough and Greenwich.

Geo said the service provides a managed 10Gbps service on fibre that is capable of scaling up to terabit capacity.

“ITV’s strategic priority is to drive new revenue streams by exploiting our content across multiple free and pay platforms,” said Andrew Ioannou, ITV’s director of strategy technology, platforms and business delivery.

“A robust network that eliminated single points of failure and reduced our business risk to its lowest possible level was critical to us.”
