21 April 2015 |


Japan Internet Exchange (JPIX) has deployed Infinera’s Cloud Xpress solution to help support bandwidth growth in the metropolitan area of Tokyo.

It is said to enable JPIX to scale bandwidth in 100Gbps increments without changing hardware. It also claims to provide up to one Tbps of input and output capacity in just two rack units.

"As Japan's fastest growing commercial IX service, we continue to enhance our network to ensure the efficient flow of data in the metro Cloud for internet users in Japan and globally," said Yoshiki Ishida, JPIX CEO. "The Infinera Cloud Xpress allows us to interconnect all of our sites while only requiring a small amount of space and power. And the platform provides us operational benefits that massively simplify what it takes to deploy the network."

JPIX was established in 1997 and offers an exchange point for service and content providers in Japan and is said to play an important role in powering the Japanese internet backbone.
