GTT Communications has announced the upgrade of its fibre network across several of its European.

The network upgrades enhance the capacity and performance capability of GTT’s Tier I global IP network footprint for its enterprise and carrier clients.

“Europe is a major market for GTT, and we are continuing to invest in our advanced network infrastructure to support clients’ ever increasing bandwidth requirements,” said Rick Calder (pictured), GTT president and CEO. “This is a further demonstration of GTT’s commitment to deliver on its purpose to connect people across organizations, around the world and to every application in the cloud.”

GTT has upgraded routes that connect network points of presence in London, Amsterdam, Frankfurt and Paris, including the subsea link between the UK and the Netherlands, along with an additional route in southern Europe that connects Madrid and Marseille.

The company has also deployed more fibre capacity on its metro networks in Paris and Marseille. The upgrade to the Marseille metro extends to multiple subsea cable landing stations connected by its network. In addition, GTT has expanded its European network footprint by deploying a new point of presence in Belgrade, Serbia.

GTT used Infinera’s FlexILS line system and high-performance ICE4 optical engine with instant bandwidth to complete the upgrades. These technologies work together to double network capacity, enhance the network’s software-defined capabilities and provide clients with faster service delivery.

Earlier this year, GTT expanded its SD-WAN service by adding the capability to run multiple network applications on a single universal customer premises equipment (uCPE) device.

uCPE enables more cost-effective and efficient delivery of network services, including centralised management of software updates and more flexible service customisation.
