Dutch Colocation Provider Deploys Force10's 10 GigE

TrueServer, a Netherlands-based colocation and hosting service provider, has deployed Force10 Networks' TeraScale E-Series in an upgrade of its network to 10 Gbps. The company is using Force10's recently launched 90-port high density Gigabit Ethernet cards, which increase the density of the TeraScale E-Series to 1,260 ports. This allows TrueServer to collapse its aggregation and core layers to simplify its network and build in a new level of resiliency.

TrueServer provides colocation and hosting services to enterprises across Europe. To accommodate the recent surge in traffic, driven in large part by the significant demand for Internet radio and television, TrueServer is deploying the Force10 TeraScale E-Series in a full 10 Gigabit Ethernet mesh between its TeleCity-2 and Redbus Interhouse colocation and IP POPs, ensuring full redundancy and high network availability. Additionally, two 10 Gigabit Ethernet links connect both POPs to the Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX).
