Equinix selects Infinera solutions

Optical networking system provider Infinera announced on Tuesday that data centre operator Equinix has selected Infinera for its metro networks linking its Internet Business Exchange centers in major cities across North America and Asia.

Level 1 PCI DSS Certified Service Provider! DataPipe delivers the best network & support; top tier data centers; New York metro, Silicon Valley, London, Hong Kong, Shanghai. DataPipe - Personal Touch, Global Reach.

Equinix says it selected Infinera because of the benefits and global track record of the Infinera architecture. Scalability, speed and flexibility of provisioning, and service density were important attributes for Equinix to meet the needs of today's marketplace. Equinix also found that Infinera's DTN System met its high standards for carrier-class reliability.

In addition, Infinera's deployment experience and customer acceptance in North America, Europe, and Asia were crucial factors to Equinix as it was seeking an optical system that had proven it could meet international standards and requirements and function effectively in multiple markets worldwide, says the company.

"Some of the world's largest Internet content providers rely on Equinix's network-rich interconnection hubs to facilitate their high-performance content delivery operations," says Lane Patterson, chief technologist at Equinix.

"To many of these companies, 10Gb has become the new 1Gb, and their need for rapid provisioning of multiple 10Gb wavelengths continues to grow. Infinera enables us to respond quickly to this demand and to provide a highly scalable solution for customers."

Infinera's director of advanced optical technologies was recently honored by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers as an IEEE Fellow.
