The partnership-based cooperation between BKW and GAS&COM was strengthened by a further interconnection point for the two fibre optic networks near Oberbuchsiten. This further network interconnection enables both BKW and GAS&COM to offer their customers network redundant and highly secure fibre optic connections throughout Switzerland.
This new connection makes it possible to provide BKW customers with a fast and secure connection via the GAS&COM network to all important data centres in Switzerland.
This will also enable access to all cloud providers.
GAS&COM customers will benefit as well: they will be able to use additional redundant routes on the BKW network. This will enhance the reliability of the connections even further.
For the customers of both companies, this will open up new opportunities to take advantage of the benefits of fibre optic connections quickly and securely.
