Colt Technology Services has deployed Infinera’s DTN-X packet optical transport networking platform on its long distance network.

The platform is said to support the demand for high capacity services in Europe more effectively by allowing Colt to provision 40G and 100G services to its carrier and enterprise customers.

The solution has been deployed across Colt’s European Supercore network, which supports national and international services between the European cities of London, Paris, Amsterdam, Brussels, Frankfurt, Dusseldorf, Hamburg, Berlin, Munich, Stuttgart, Zurich, Vienna and Dublin.

The solution is said to support up to 8Tbps of capacity and the ability to provide continued service and revenue growth in the high bandwidth services market.

“The Infinera platform allows us to easily scale the network as customer demand increases over time, giving Colt the flexibility needed to effectively support our customers,” said Zhongmin Guo, VP of strategy and business development, network services at Colt Technology Services.
