As part of the project the company signed a deal with Juniper to update its datacentres to serve customers with internet, voice and data facilities through its Networks EX Series Ethernet Switches and MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers.

The island has an e-gaming industry worth £150m, within which Wi-Manx has several customers. The other main industry is disaster recovery. Speed is of particular importance to these sectors, according to Joe Hughes, chief technical officer at Wi-Manx. The Ethernet will now serve customers with speeds of up to 10GB from 1GB.
