We are continuing to expand our fiber optic network

We are known for continuously offering our customers even more connectivity and active broadband services. The extended network expansion with our partner Netrics enables us to increase our quality and security even further with immediate effect.

The data centre in Biel perfectly completes Netrics’ own data centre “Datacube” in Münchenstein. This is both geographically and technically. The two data centres are connected with a high-performance fibre optic backbone and are thus ideally designed for geo-redundant scenarios with maximum reliability.

In cooperation with Netrics, we have further expanded our network in Northwest Switzerland for our customers. From now on, redundant and active nodes from GAS&COM are available in the data centres in Biel and Münchenstein. This enables us to offer DWDM, Ethernet and Internet services from 0 to 400 Gbps. 

At the same time, we have added more redundancy to the Basel, Biel, Bern and Oberbuchsiten routes to increase reliability. 

Sergio Milesi, CEO GAS&COM AG
«Another milestone in the expansion of our interregional fibre optic network in the Basel-Biel-Bern area is set. We are convinced that the synergies between GAS&COM’s secure and ultra-fast infrastructure and Netrics’ highly professional services in the fields of workplace, cloud and communication will result in an excellent overall solution for our customers.»

Erich Hohermuth, Regional Director Netrics
«We are looking forward to further expanding our cooperation with GAS&COM in Switzerland. With the connection to the data highway, the Netrics data centres are optimally embedded in the data centre landscape of Switzerland. In addition, the products for our existing customers will be completed and colocation from both Geneva and Zurich will be made possible. Furthermore, we are particularly strengthening the bilingual city of Biel and thus continuing to drive the digital transformation of the ‘watch metropolis’ and the precision industry.»
