Private, dedicated connections to Azure and Microsoft 365
ExpressRoute provides dedicated paths to Azure - Microsoft's cloud computing platform.
This eliminates Internet congestion, cuts network latency and improves IT security.
You can pay a bit extra to connect to Microsoft 365 and to Azure regions worldwide.
We can connect your customers to Microsoft's cloud via ExpressRoute as we're one of the 'connectivity partners' Microsoft has chosen to work with to deliver connectivity.
Our network allows us to connect you to Azure from lots of locations.
We can provide you with dedicated connections that link any of your customers offices to Azure via two separate data centres.
Offer ExpressRoute without paying for Azure hubs or extending your network into data centres where Microsoft is present.
hSo doesn't charge for transferring data over ExpressRoute connections. If your customers opt for Azure's unmetered options, their ExpressRoute bills will be known in advance.
We're connected already. So set-up is fairly speedy in most cases.
We offer a wide variety of fixed connection speeds including 50Mbps, 100Mbps, 200Mbps, 500Mbps, 1Gbps, 2Gbps, 5Gbps or 10Gbps.
Service Level Agreements, backed by 24/7 monitoring
- Our network monitoring systems keep an eye on the Azure-related interconnects and the hSo routers that they plug into, so that if there's a problem we can spot it automatically and start troubleshooting quickly.
