AboveNet, a provider of high bandwidth connectivity offerings, has won a new contract with IPR International, which offers comprehensive managed electronic data protection service to over 240 clients in 17 countries.
Under the contract, AboveNet is providing high bandwidth connectivity offerings linking IPR facilities in Philadelphia with IPR’s newly opened data centre in Wilmington, DE, and also to IPR’s Reading Business Continuity Centre located in Reading, PA, where AboveNet offerings already support large enterprises, including a major global banking and financial services institution.
