i3D.net has chosen Relined Fiber network. Not only because of their stable network solution; but also because of i3D.net’s unique datacenter locations in both Rotterdam and Heerlen which lie close to the railroad tracks.
These datacenters have been redundantly connected with geographically separated dark fibers towards the Amsterdam internet exchanges as a preparation to the estimated future demand.
Relined Fiber Network, the supplier of Dark Fiber connections in The Netherlands, Provides fiber connectivity solutions for the corporate market. Relined’s network is uniquely located on the railroad premises (managed by ProRail) and in the high-voltage power lines (managed by TenneT), which allows the transmission of data over long distances with minimal attenuation. The locations of i3D.net in Rotterdam and Heerlen are both located right next to the railroad tracks. This made the easy connection to Relined’s national network possible.
"The fact that only certified contractors are allowed near the fiber lines results in exceptional network security and stability."

The cooperation between i3D.net and Relined begain in 2014 when i3D.net showed interest in a dark fiber solution between its Rotterdam-based datacenter and one of i3D.net’s on-net backbone locations in Amsterdam. “The cooperation with Relined’s account manager was very direct and went very smoothly. Relined is known for their short lines of communication and they are able to think creatively and proactively from a customers’ perspective. Besides this spotless cooperation was Relined able to offer a suitable solution for a competitive price; which resulted in the first cooperation between both organizations.”
Nowadays, Relined fiber network supplies i3D.net with the majority of its’ backbone transport lines within The Netherlands.
“Relined’s way of thinking matches our corporate strategy. Because of this synergy; cooperating with one another was bound to happen.”
