Turkey's Grid Telekom Deploys Force10 for Next Gen Data Center

Grid Telekom, a leading data center and hosting service provider in Turkey, has deployed the Force10's TeraScale E300 and S50 access switch at its primary data center in Istanbul.

The high Gigabit Ethernet density of the TeraScale E300 -- up to 288 ports in a single chassis -- enables Grid Telekom to simplify its network architecture as well as lower its related capital and operational costs by collapsing multiple layers into a single one. Grid Telekom has also deployed the Force10 P1 security appliance to provide line-rate traffic inspection and monitoring based on custom capture and filtering policies.

For this deployment, Force10 partnered with Allied Telesis International (ATI).
