The Service Exchange Platform is Fluidata’s award winning wholesale platform providing Layer-2 access to a wide range of tier-1 connectivity carriers across the UK and Europe. Fluidata aims to connect all networks into this platform and is currently working with a number of rural and urban networks involved in connecting the ‘final third’ to ensure nationwide coverage. With a choice of DSL, FTTC, FTTH, Fibre and Wireless technologies the platform looks to meet all connectivity needs.
Currently the Service Exchange Platform is the largest of its kind with over sixteen networks connecting into it, providing customers with an unrivalled choice in technology availability. Over fifty ISPs currently use SEP to help support their customers with services and while many might foster direct relationships with some of the major carriers, the wide choice of networks available ensure every opportunity can be catered for.
The platform is available to interconnect via ten datacentres across the UK with a variety of commercial options including unlimited, 95th percentile and data usage billing. Services can be delivered down the same interconnect via separate VLANs into your termination equipment. Fluidata can help with supporting or building this capability if you don’t currently have your own IP termination with the CORE product.
If you are looking to offer many customers or sites with connectivity then you can’t afford not to consider the Service Exchange Platform for your business.

Why can't I deal directly with the carriers?
You can, however it can be expensive and minimum spend commitments may apply. It is cheaper and easier with SEP.
Surely the cost is higher?
Not necessarily. With most carriers we are actually more cost effective than dealing directly with them due to our volumes.
Can I speak to the carriers?
Yes in most cases especially sales or marketing related we encourage direct communication.
