OVH deploys Infinera’s platform on pan-European network

29 January 2013 |


Web hosting company OVH has selected Infinera’s DTN-X to increase the capacity of its pan-European network.

The deal is designed to support OVH’s public and private cloud services across the region.

Infinera said the deal will enable OVH to increase its network capacity up to 10 times over and connect data centres throughout 10 major European cities in seven countries.

DTN-X enables long-haul optical super-channels of up to 500Gbps and will be deployed across 10,000km of optical fibre.

Routes set to benefit from the increased capacity include the 1,200km Roubaix to Paris to Strasbourg link.

“We continue to be impressed by Infinera’s PIC technology and the DTN-X platform – from significantly simplifying our operations and reducing the time to deploy bandwidth to fundamentally lowering our total cost of ownership,” said Octave Klaba, CEO at OVH.

Infinera’s Chris Champion, VP of EMEA sales, said that deal proved the company’s solution was valuable to customers beyond traditional network operators.

OVH has deployed its own worldwide fibre network with 33 peering points of three continents and 2Tbps of bandwidth.
