Irideos Uses Infinera To Built 400 Gb Network
mTera platform enables network extending over 15,000 km along Italian motorways
Irideos, the new Italian ICT hub dedicated to Business and Public Administration implemented an upgrade to its fibre optic network across Italy, allowing high-capacity connections up to 400 Gigabits.
“Leveraging the latest-generation technologies provided by Infinera, we now offer a diversified and protected network for high-speed data transfer and are ready to support the most innovative services requiring high-bandwidth capacity like high resolution video, real-time transmission, IoT, and augmented reality,” said Sandro Falleni, head of technologies and systems of Irideos. “The Infinera mTera platform, featuring an SDN-ready architecture, enables our network to deliver dynamically protected data transfer services over multiple paths with more flexibility in routing capacity.”
Built on a proprietary fibre optic infrastructure extending over 15,000 km along the Italian motorways, the Irideos network is based on ultra-low latency, direct optical paths ensuring high performance, and on an ASON architecture and GMPLS protocols for dynamic protection of services. Integrated super-channels allow very high-capacity transport that, according to the connections, for example between Milan and Rome, support up to 400 Gigabits.
The Irideos backbone is directly managed by in-house staff to ensure the most reliable connections and a constant and timely monitoring of service performance.
“With the adoption of innovative technologies, Irideos makes available to its domestic and international carrier customers, and OTTs, a powerful and scalable transmission platform that enables high-capacity services and, together with cloud and data center infrastructure and management services, supports enterprise digital transformation,” said Falleni.
