1&1 Versatel is a B2B provider for fiber gigabit connections and network-related services in Germany. The company is part of the United Internet AG and as such is a sister company of 1&1 AG. 1&1 Versatel operates one of the biggest and most powerful fiber networks in Germany — providing its own network in more than 250 German cities and implementing over 50,000 business customer solutions. We’re delighted that such an innovative company has chosen to partner with Akamai to increase the reach of its customer base to include smaller enterprises and to make its operations secure.

With its own fiber network, 1&1 Versatel ensures that its customers are optimally prepared for future challenges, because the performance limit of copper cables has long since been reached. The company is already implementing business connections with 10,000 Mbps, which corresponds to a data throughput of 1.25 GB per second. Fiber is 100 times faster than other connections. Its upload and download speeds are symmetrical and therefore, with this method, data transmission is safer and more stable than with other techniques.

The company has just announced its 1&1 Office Fast & Secure package. This combines high-performance fiber connections with state-of-the-art security applications at a very attractive price. With the fiber connection to the office, companies benefit from internet bandwidth of up to 1 Gbps. At the same time, included security applications such as cloud firewall, malware, phishing, and spyware detection protect company data and devices from hacker attacks of any kind. All this wonderful expansion of 1&1 Versatel’s offering has been enabled with help from Akamai. The company’s continued innovation is exciting, and their future forays into 5G networks will definitely be worth following too.

Speaking of the collaboration with Akamai, Dr. Joachim Sinzig, Vice President, Products & Solutions at 1&1 Versatel said, “When we met with Akamai, they immediately understood exactly what we wanted to achieve and came up with an attractive proposal that completely met our needs. It is great to work with a partner that understands our priorities so well.”

The Akamai solutions deployed by 1&1 Versatel are powered by the Akamai Intelligent Edge Platform. This is a place where proximity, scale, security, and innovation work together. All backed by a team of experts to help our customers unlock their full potential. We’re delighted with our partnership with 1&1 Versatel; helping them expand their network further in a way that is secure and reliable is another example of our mission to make life better for billions of people, billions of times a day.
