Relined delivers the shortest route from Eemshaven to Amsterdam via the Afsluitdijk


Relined Fiber Network's project for connecting the Afsluitdijk to its network started several years ago. The goal? To be able to deliver the shortest/a low latency route to Amsterdam from Eemshaven. This 20 to 30 km shorter route means that the company can now offer customers (including those based in the Nordic area) a new redundant connection between the North of the Netherlands and Amsterdam. The new COBRA Fiber Optic Cable - the submarine cable between the Netherlands and Denmark - and the fact that the company now has more network infrastructure at its disposal in North Holland significantly accelerated progress during the past year. These new developments meant that the project could be completed at the end of March 2019.

So you could say that Dark Fibre is just a cable lying under the surface. Not very exciting, right? In fact, the opposite is true! In this blog you read why.
