Oracle customers can harness the power of Oracle Cloud locally, including Oracle Autonomous Database, to unlock innovation and drive business growth.

This expansion allows customers to take advantage of on-demand, high-speed, secure connectivity from their sites to the Oracle Cloud.

With OCI FastConnect, Colt’s offering ensures an easy, flexible, and economical way for enterprises in Sweden’s industrial and financial heart to connect to Oracle Cloud.

We can be a significant player in increasing competitiveness, boosting productivity and meeting the future demands of enterprises. Customers in Sweden and the Nordic region will have access to the extensive Colt IQ Network, which delivers connectivity to over 900 key data centres and more than 29,000 buildings worldwide, as well as the long-distance network connecting Europe to key hubs in Asia, enabling the digital transformation of businesses looking to support their high bandwidth needs.
