Trade between Asia and Europe remains strong with significant inter-regional 
investment flows and growing collaboration in education, research, and other 
areas. The Frankfurt Data Centre is an important addition to CMI's growing 
global network and serves as both an International Network Exchange hub and an 
Internet Data Centre (IDC). 

"CMI is locating our second data centre in Europe in Frankfurt to help provide 
secure and reliable high-speed connections and enable closer ties between 
Europe and Asia. COVID-19 has meant more users spending more time online, with 
increased reliance on digital tools for remote working and learning and online 
shopping. Technology is now an intrinsic part of almost all aspects of our 
lives, so more data needs to be processed and stored. This in turn means 
greater demand for cloud and content delivery solutions," said Dr Li Feng, 
Chairman & CEO of CMI. "CMI provides professional one-stop-shop services to 
help carrier and enterprise customers respond to and meet the needs of their 
users in a new era of digital globalization."

The new Frankfurt facility seamlessly connects with CMI's Singapore and UK data 
centres, its Global Network Centre in Hong Kong and its extensive global mobile 
communications and cloud network infrastructure. The new data centre will 
strengthen the international connectivity of iConnect, an integrated solution 
for carriers and deliver enterprise services to businesses worldwide via CMI 
iSolutions and mCloud. More than 2,000 international businesses currently 
leverage CMI's iSolutions product suite for connectivity and specialist 
solutions covering IDC, information and communications technology, Internet of 
Things and cloud, while more than 10,000 enterprise users rely on CMI's mCloud 
cloud-network integration platform.

CMI's global footprint includes cable systems, points of presence (POPs) and 
data centres, as well as collaborative agreements with 29 data centre service 
providers that extend its services to more than 210 cities worldwide.

An expert team helps global financial sector organizations build flexible 
hybrid IT infrastructure that meets the industry's exacting security and 
compliance requirements across public cloud, private cloud, and physical 
architecture. CMI's integrated cloud networking products help banks, insurers, 
security firms and fintechs access secure global data centres, dedicated 
low-latency routes and cloud connections. CMI leverages its global network 
infrastructure to offer a service-ready cross-border backbone via mCloud that 
slashes cloud provisioning lead time to seconds—a fraction of that required for 
traditional connectivity service deployments. It also ensures 99.99% 
availability for POP-to-POP connections with mCloud's Cloud Connect solution 
smoothly integrating different cloud regions around the world. 

"With an extensive footprint of cable systems, data centres and more than 80 
Cloud Connect POPs, CMI provides global access with ample bandwidth, flexible 
connectivity and comprehensive one-stop services," Dr Li Feng said. "Serving 
international customers, especially Chinese enterprises looking to expand in 
Europe, our new facility is helping confirm Frankfurt as a premier data centre 

Located in Mörfelden, the CMI Frankfurt Data Centre is designed with two 
individual cable lead-ins with dual diversity paths and advanced nine-layer 
security control. The newly built facility is served by a dual power supply 
from two different power substations. The power system is supported by 2N 
Transformers and Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS), which is equipped with a 
12-minute backup battery. The data centre's cooling system includes chilled 
water storage reserved for continuous cooling backup. 

The new data centre is a Tier III data centre certified by the Uptime Institute 
under its Tier Certification of Design Documents (TCDD) standard. CMI expects 
to confirm other international certifications including Payment Card Industry - 
Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS), TÜViT Trusted Site Infrastructure (TSI) Level 
3, Tier Certification of Constructed Facilities (TCCF) standards, and relevant 
ISO certifications for security and quality management. 

With enterprises increasingly wanting the benefits of comprehensive 
one-stop-shop solutions, CMI is committed to offering a complete range of 
value-added services, including professional colocation, cross-connect and 
remote hands support. The latter provides on-site technicians for maintenance 
tasks and IT management on behalf of the enterprise and minimises the need for 
site visits by their in-house personnel. 

To meet the growing demands of multinational companies, CMI will continue to 
advance its presence across the globe and maximise its data centre synergies to 
achieve efficient convergence and agility, providing global access with large 
bandwidth connectivity.
