Backhaul services

Backhaul provides an expansive, scalable infrastructure, allowing you to easily extend your network reach and grow your customer base.

Backhaul in networking refers to the infrastructure that connects a local network, or subnetwork, to a backbone or core network. It’s typically a high capacity, low latency link designed to transmit data efficiently and fast. 

Investing in exchange backhaul enhances your network capabilities and competitiveness. By adopting exchange backhaul, you’re able to gain access to a robust and scalable infrastructure that enables you to extend your network reach and broaden your customer base, all without incurring the costly construction charges of building your own network.

Service options

Layer 1 service

Optical Wavelengths provide businesses with high capacity core connectivity without the capital-intensive responsibility of investing in network infrastructure, or the in-house IT expertise needed to manage and maintain the network.

Our Optical Wavelengths are available in 10Gbps, 100Gbps and 400Gbps capacities, with multiple wavelengths able to be provisioned between sites.

Layer 2 service

Ethernet is currently the most common type of connectivity in the UK because it provides a synchronous, high bandwidth service, making it a great option for many businesses.

With speeds of up to 10Gbps, Ethernet offers an immense boost to data transfer capabilities. Whether you’re moving large files, running bandwidth intensive applications or supporting a high volume network, 10Gbps connectivity services can help.

What are the benefits?


There are a number of reasons why you should consider Optical connectivity:

High availability: Diverse wavelength spectrum without sharing, up to 99.95%
Dedicated: Exceptional speeds and low latency
Diversity: Route separation available to protect against outages
Resilience: Managed switching available to add resilience into the network
Flexible: Bandwidths from 10Gbps to 400Gbps
Guaranteed bandwidth: Always receive the full bandwidth you pay for

There are a number of reasons why you should consider Ethernet connectivity:

High availability: Protecting your backhaul across our MPLS core network, meaning that should the primary path fail, our network automatically re-routes your traffic over a secondary path
High throughput: We can configure 1Gbps to 10Gbps backhaul to use jumbo frames (MTU size of up to 9100 bytes), such that it mimics the throughput more closely associated with Optical Wavelengths
Distance limitations: There aren’t any
NNIs: We offer 100Gbps NNIs in 20 data centres and selected exchanges
Upgrade path: Bandwidths from 1Gbps to 10Gbps
