Aegis Data has both Tier 1 and Tier 2 carrier options available.

Tier 1 available via BT21C and Global Cloud Exchange, the UK arm of Reliance Communications. This also allows different providers for each leg and diverse routes should you require.

Our Tier 2 carrier network provides access to a national fibre network spanning the southern half of the UK. This includes local tail circuits from 100Mb to 10Gb. This can be provided cost-effectively from multiple nodes within our data centre to customer sites or other facilities in the UK.

We also offer direct connections into the public hyper-clouds of AWS, Azure, Google Cloud and Softlayer. This provides customers with a level of service stability and security unavailable via internet access as well as the cost benefit of lower bandwidth charges.

"Aegis Data has linked a partnership with the telecommunications provider Global Cloud Xchange (GCX), a subsidiary of Reliance Communications, to expand its global reach across Europe, US, Asia and the Middle East."
