International broadcast services company WRN Broadcast has extended its existing facility in London with a new broadcast data centre.

The new, purpose-built data centre was constructed following increased interest from existing international broadcast clients, as well as new clients such as IPWorldTV and Farncombe, both of whom operate within the wider media industry and who have already signed contracts for rack space.

Available 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year, the broadcast data centre will work alongside WRN Broadcast’s content delivery network (CDN) and offer guaranteed internet connectivity with diverse fibre routing, access to over 3000 PoPs worldwide and the ability to receive satellite signals. Other optional services range from monitoring and uplink to archive and storage, all taken from WRN Broadcast’s existing range of broadcast managed services.

Commented David Treadway, Managing Director, WRN Broadcast: “We’re always listening to our clients and looking at how best to support them – the Broadcast Data Centre is just the latest evidence of this. We built the data centre with broadcasters in mind and we’re excited to provide a unique offering and one that has driven real interest from around the world. We look forward to working with some new clients, such as Farncombe and IPWorldTV, as well as further supporting our existing client base. “

Added Gary Marshall, Managing Partner, Farncombe: “[We] selected WRN Broadcast’s new Broadcast Data Centre due to the top class connectivity and proximity to many of our clients – this is complemented by a great level of service from the WRN Broadcast team.”
