Sexqeltkemc Cloud Services joins Kamloops Community Network
Kamloops, B.C. –The City of Kamloops is pleased to announce that the Sexqeltkemc Cloud Services (SX Cloud) has joined the Kamloops Community Fibre Network (KCN) as a customer.
In order to service a “meet me” location in South Kamloops, SX Cloud has agreed to fund an upgrade to the KCN fibre count near Kamloops Center for Water Quality. SX Cloud will then lease fibre from this location to the KCN Transit exchange at City Hall. The initial agreement is for 3 years with the possibility of additional locations being added over time.
“By attracting new customers to the KCN fibre optic system the value of the network is apparent,” says Tony Klancar, Information Technology Manager for the City of Kamloops. “Customers get unmatched data transmissions speeds. The industry is moving to 100 Gigabits per second and the KCN is fully able to support that level. And, since only a single customer’s data is on their dedicated fibres, the KCN has security and capacity that cannot be matched by switched networks”.
