IRIDEOS picks Infinera for 400G network upgrade
Italian telecoms infrastructure firm IRIDEOS has upgraded its transport network offering to support connections up to 400Gbps by deploying Infinera technology.
IRIDEOS’s network spans 30,000km of optical fibre running along motorways in Italy. The firm also manages 12 data centres in the country, with customers including carriers, OTTs, and enterprises. It also has a carrier neutral backbone spanning some of Europe’s largest points of presence.
IRIDEOS is deploying Infinera’s mTera platform to offer so-called “super channels” that allow for very high-capacity transport – up to 400Gbps.
Potential direct connections, which are built on an ASON architecture and GMPLS protocols for dynamic protection of services, include Milan to Rome. These will be directly managed by staff in-house, according to IRIDEOS, ensuring the “most reliable connections” and live monitoring of service performance.
“Leveraging the latest-generation technologies provided by Infinera, we now offer a diversified and protected network for high-speed data transfer and are ready to support the most innovative services requiring high-bandwidth capacity like high resolution video, real-time transmission, IoT, and augmented reality,” said Sandro Falleni, head of technologies and Systems of IRIDEOS.
“The Infinera mTera platform, featuring an SDN-ready architecture, enables our network to deliver dynamically protected data transfer services over multiple paths with more flexibility in routing capacity.”
“We’re very proud to be a strategy technology partner to IRIDEOS and look forward to continue delivering cutting-edge technologies that will help them stay at the forefront of service innovation,” said Bob Jandro, SVP of worldwide sales at Infinera.
