Fujitsu Adds 2,500 km to its 100G Dark Fiber Network in the UK

As the needs of the modern business increase in terms of sending and receiving data, networks must expand and improve to facilitate these needs. This is exactly what Japanese IT products and services provider, Fujitsu?(News – Alert) has done in the UK by expanding its 100G high-speed fiber-optic network.

The expansion consists of an additional 2,500 km of dark fiber, enabling true 100 Gbps data — “true” meaning equal upload and download speeds — across Fujitsu’s managed wavelength service (MWS). As such, more businesses have access to a carrier-grade, high-capacity, low-latency network capable of supporting the needs of businesses which regularly transfer large data.

“This significant expansion is a direct response to customers’ increasing demand to transport very-high-bandwidth data faster and further than ever before,” said Andy Stevenson, executive director of hosting and network solutions at Fujitsu UK & Ireland, in a statement. casino . “An effective infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) begins and ends with the network; the true benefits can only be realized if the interconnect between enterprise and data center does not present a bottleneck.”

The network utilizes ADVA Optical Networking’s 100G Agile?(News – Alert) Core platform with flexible, reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexers (ROADMs), allowing for real-time wavelength provisioning and switching across the core network. This flexibility provides customers with such benefits as bandwidth-on-demand, which allows them to adjust network requirements as needed.

In other recent Fujitsu news, the company announced a few new smartphones this week, online pokies including the F-12D from the company’s RakuRaku line and the high-end ARROWS Z ISW13F, both slated for release in Japan. The F-12D was designed specifically with senior citizens in mind, sporting a design that will not “overwhelm or confuse elderly users.”

The ISW13F, on the other hand, features an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor, high-speed WiMAX?(News – Alert) communications and a 13.1 megapixel camera. Furthermore, this device sports an updated version of Fujitsu’s Human Centric Engine, which delivers improved usability via cutting-edge sensing technology.

ADVA Optical Networking’s 100G Metro Solution Chosen by Amsterdam Internet Exchange

By admin, June 18, 2012 3:14 pm

ADVA?(News – Alert) Optical Networking recently announced that the Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX) has chosen its 100G Metro solution to play a major role in new core network infrastructure. The 100G Metro solution from ADVA will be responsible for connecting data center locations throughout Amsterdam and will also double AMS-IX’s existing network capacity enabling it to cope with the exponential bandwidth growth and meets its customer’s demands.

In a release, Henk Steenman, CTO at AMS-IX, said, “We are experiencing exponential growth in data transported over the exchange platform. We expect that this growth will continue in the next three years. To accommodate this development we are expanding and upgrading the core of our network. casino . Upgrades will be based on new 100G technology and ADVA Optical Networking?(News – Alert) provides us with a 100G optical network solution to be used in the Amsterdam metro area.”

The 100G Metro solution is fully incorporated into the ADVA FSP 3000 and is based on direct detection 4×28G technology. The solution is a direct response to the demands that service providers and enterprises make for efficient 100Gbit/s data transport across distances of up to 500km.

One of the key features that the 100G Metro solution will bring to AMS-IX is its simplicity and easy to use style. AMS-IX initially did a thorough test of the ADVA Optical Networking solution in its Meiningen, Germany, facility and then went onto to conduct another successful test in its live testbed environment.

Christoph Glingener, CTO at ADVA Optical Networking, said, “Today’s networks are undergoing a radical transformation. The demand for 100G technology is growing rapidly, especially as 10G density reaches capacity. Service providers need to ensure they can respond to customers’ data demands and do so effectively. This is particularly true in the metro. Our direct detection 100G Metro solution is the first of its kind to do exactly this.”

AMS-IX collaborated with ADVA Optical Networking’s services team to conduct both tests. The support team from ADVA offered real time service and expert advice and was always present to troubleshoot and resolve any problems, thereby ensuring that both tests were successfully completed.
