Core-Backbone Deploys Infinera Cloud Xpress 2

News
Provides terabit-scale datacentre interconnect between six cities in Europe

Core-Backbone, a German provider of internet hosting and interconnection services, has deployed Infinera's Cloud Xpress 2 for high-capacity datacentre interconnect (DCI) between six cities in Europe.

Core-Backbone previously deployed the Infinera Cloud Xpress to provide 100Gb/s services between Frankfurt and Nuremberg. Now with the Cloud Xpress 2, featuring the Infinera Infinite Capacity Engine, Core-Backbone will add multiple terabits per second (Tb/s) of interconnection capacity between these cities and several others, including Amsterdam, Vienna and Munich, allowing the company to meet its customers' growing bandwidth demands.

With 1.2 Tb/s of line-side capacity in a single rack unit and high power-efficiency, the Cloud Xpress 2 is designed to fit easily into space- and power-constrained datacentre environments, according to Infinera. With Infinera's Instant Bandwidth software defined capacity (SDC), Core-Backbone can software-activate line-side bandwidth in 100 Gb/s increments when needed in minutes.The Cloud Xpress 2 also supports built-in hardware-based data encryption employing advanced industry standards and enabling 100 percent encryption of data transmitted between datacentres.

"Since our original deployment of Cloud Xpress, Core-Backbone's expansion has continued to accelerate and we are seeing unprecedented demand for connectivity between our points of presence in the large internet exchange sites," said Daniel Maresch, Core-Backbone CEO. "Cloud Xpress 2 allows us to satisfy that demand with almost five times the density of the original Cloud Xpress, lower power consumption and the same simple operational model. The plug-and-play simplicity of Cloud Xpress 2 is critically important to efficient operations in a lean organization like Core-Backbone."

"We are delighted to have Core-Backbone continue to grow their network with the Infinera Cloud Xpress Family," said Nick Walden, senior VP, EMEA at Infinera. "The example of Core-Backbone shows that Cloud Xpress 2 fits a wide range of DCI applications and that high-bandwidth DCI service providers of all sizes can benefit from its extreme simplicity, multi-terabit scalability, security and efficiency."

The Infinera Cloud Xpress Family is designed to deliver cloud-optimised metro wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) solutions to cloud service providers, internet content providers (ICPs), enterprise network operators and other large-scale datacentre operators. The Cloud Xpress 2 began shipping this year and is deployed in major ICP networks. The Cloud Xpress Family offers customers the choice of 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE), 40 GbE and 100 GbE client interfaces to meet their specific requirements.



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
