Japan Internet Exchange Deploys Infinera Cloud Xpress

Japan Internet Exchange (JPIX) has deployed the Infinera Cloud Xpress to help accommodate bandwidth growth in its network in the metropolitan Tokyo area in Japan.

Infinera's Cloud Xpress isa compact, high-density, optical system optimized for interconnecting multiple data centers within a metro area. It leverages existing Infinera technologies, including its Photonic Integrated Circuit (PICs) and super-channel aggregation, to provide massive bandwidth in a form factor that data center operators can rack-n-stack.

JPIX is Japan's first commercial IX provider, established in 1997, offering a set of neutral locations that allows telecom, Cloud and wholesale service providers to exchange traffic as well as interconnect with enterprise users. The JPIX IX service is a significant exchange point for major service and content providers in Japan and plays an important role in powering the Japanese Internet backbone. With the IX service delivered by JPIX, Internet service providers (ISPs) and content providers are able to respond to continuous increases in Internet traffic as demand increases from their customers.

Infinera said JPIX chose its Cloud Xpress for its small form factor, low power consumption and its ability to easily scale bandwidth in 100 Gbps increments without any changes in hardware. The Cloud Xpress provides JPIX up to one terabit per second (Tbps) of input and output capacity in just two rack units. Further, the Cloud Xpress simplifies operations with a single fiber to deliver a 500 Gb/s super-channel of line-side capacity, a highly-reliable photonic integrated circuit, the flexibility of 10 gigabit Ethernet (GbE) and 40 GbE today, and 100 GbE client side interfaces with Cloud Xpress product family in the future.

"The tremendous demand for bandwidth globally puts immense pressure on the Cloud," said Stu Elby, senior vice president of Cloud network strategy and technology at Infinera. "JPIX's deployment of Cloud Xpress further underscores the need for simple, highly scalable interconnect solutions across a variety of markets."
