Interoute’s Unified Transport portfolio brings together diverse platforms and technologies to provide Data Centre interconnects or inter-site connectivity. Ranging from simple point to point services, to more complex multipoint Carrier Ethernet solutions, as well as direct connectivity to Interoute’s cloud offering, Interoute Virtual Data Centre (VDC) and other Cloud providers.
