The UK's Nationwide Building Society has signed a multi-million pound contract with Fibernet for an end to end fibre optic network to allow it to copy and restore mission critical data and applications.

The network will extend 158 kilometres to link Nationwide's Swindon and Northampton technical centres and allow the society to replicate data stored on on servers and mainframes using a fibre channel and dense wave division multiplexing (DWDM) technology.

Chris Woolhouse, purchasing manager, Nationwide, says Fibernet is partnering with existing solutions partner HP for the project.

"The length of the fibre network is also a crucial factor where synchronous mirroring is concerned and Fibernet was able to work with us to provide the shortest distance to ensure reliability," adds Woolhouse.

Installation of the network is expected to be completed in the first half of 2003.
