Vorboss Brings 100Gbps Fibre Link to 22 Bishopsgate in London

UK ISP Vorboss, which last year hinted at plans to bring their own FTTP broadband network to 250,000 premises (homes and businesses) in large UK urban areas by 2022 (here), has just completed one of their biggest projects so far after they hooked-up the 22 Bishopsgate building in London to a 100Gbps link.

AXA IM – Real Assets, the developers behind 22 Bishopsgate, commissioned Vorboss to install the 100Gbps end-to-end fibre network with dual resilience throughout the 62-storey tower. The building itself consists mostly of business and commercial units, which normally falls a bit outside of our focus (other operators can do this too), but is still somewhat of a big achievement for this provider.

Naturally they’ve embedded infrastructure throughout the building, with access to termination points on every floor. The building is also making use of Microsoft’s Azure Digital Twins IoT platform, which embeds machine learning insights into the core building management system. The new link will also be used to support technology amenities like facial recognition, environmental sensors, and advanced energy usage analytics.

Timothy Creswick, Vorboss CEO, said:

“22 Bishopsgate is setting new standards for workspaces in London and reliable internet connectivity is essential to not only its tenants, but its core operations. When AXA IM – Real Assets explained their requirements for a smart building, we immediately understood how critical our service would be and knew we could help fulfil their vision, delivering the most bandwidth to a single customer location.”

End.

    I’d love to know how much a 100Gbps port and router costs at whatever location they are peering at. That will probably easily cost more than the fibre in the ground!

      Less than £2000 a month for 100G port at Linx London. But that’s not their only cost if they’re providing Internet access. Thry probably don’t need to peer at 100Gb either.

    Many commercial tenants would likely have their own policies with regards provision of connectivity so, whilst this is interesting, it remains to be seen how much usage the link actually gets. And that does of course assume that people start to return to central London offices anytime soon!
