The EllaLink Group has closed an agreement with RENTELECOM to use dark fibers in Portugal and Spain for data center interconnection. RENTELECOM offers the largest neutral backbone in Portugal with more than 8,100km of fiber optic cables within their electricity and gas transport domains. EllaLink will integrate RENTELECOM’s fibers in its optical platform to enhance its services from Sines to Madrid and Lisbon.

The protected fiber ring will connect all the major data centers of both capital cities allowing EllaLink to serve PoPs with low latency capacity, open spectrum and managed spectrum services directly towards Fortaleza, São Paulo and Rio in Brazil

Rui Franco, Director of RENTELECOM, said, “Our aim is to continuously invest in our networks in order to address Portugal’s optical fiber needs. We already offer the largest and most stable neutral optical fiber backbone, with seven cross-border interconnections with Spain, interconnecting all telecom operators and the biggest Datacenters in Portugal.”

Diego Matas, Chief Operating Officer of EllaLink, added, “This agreement with RENTELECOM further reinforces our presence in Portugal and Spain, breaking ground for a long-term collaboration. The high availability of RENTELECOM’s fibers over the shortest route to Madrid, marks a significant step in the expansion of the EllaLink terrestrial network to meet increasing bandwidth demands.”
