and one of the largest and most advanced
Energy-Efficient Data Centers in Southeastern Europe.

Balkan Gate I will be directly connected with all main national, Balkan, and international telecommunications providers and will operate exclusively as a carrier neutral data center. Starting from the initial stages of its development, Balkan Gate I will offer the full spectrum of Cloud and Data Center solutions, such as Colocation services, which will include anything from individual Rack Units to Rack Cages and Suites; Disaster Recovery, and Business Continuity services.

At the same time, Balkan Gate I will offer hosting for specialized Internet Exchange telecommunication services on a Balkan level, as well as global carrier-grade connectivity services. The new building will house Lancom’s research and development department on Cloud, Big Data, AI, and IoT, as well as an innovative hub that will host startup companies focusing on the aforementioned technologies.

standards of excellence

Balkan Gate I is being constructed following Uptime Institute’s TIER III guidelines, incorporating, at every stage of its development, the most cutting-edge tech management systems for infrastructure, energy, and cooling.


With total respect to the environment, Lancom has prioritized achieving the maximum energy efficiency for Balkan Gate I’s operations, with a project carbon footprint decrease at a scale of 19,000 tons per annum.

      Ever since our company’s founding, we have envisioned putting Northern Greece, and particularly Thessaloniki, on the global map of telecommunications and Data Center services. Apart from its size, which makes it the largest data center in the region, Balkan Gate I is also poised to become the most reliable carrier-neutral telecommunications gate in the Balkans, acting as the most dynamic representation of Northern Greece in the rapidly-developing technology industry.

     Our country has undoubtedly been chosen by industry giants such as Microsoft as an area of significant importance wherein they ought to establish their presence. However, this investment of an 100% Greek-owned company like Lancom will not only lead to the creation of new jobs but will also create a significant influx of foreign currency, seeing as there is already high interest in the recruitment of our new Data Center’s services from various international corporations.

     Lancom, an entirely Greek company, has been in business since 2009 offering Class Cloud and Data Center services to Greek and international corporations through its two proprietary Data Centers in Thessaloniki and Athens. At the same time, the company has developed an extensive proprietary metropolitan optical fiber network in Athens and Thessaloniki, offering enterprise fiber to the business (FTTB) solutions at speeds ranging from 1000 Mbps to 10 Gbps. The company’s newest investment in Thessaloniki positions it even more dynamically on the international Data Center services map.
