Amsterdam-based Linxtelecom Deploys ADVA

Amsterdam-based Linxtelecom has selected ADVA Optical Networking's FSP 3000 to enhance speed connectivity across parts of its network. The network delivers transport between data centers separated by international borders and provides local peering with Internet exchanges. Initial deployments have been done in Russia and the Baltic countries.

Linxtelecom provides a range of services including international private lines (IPL), wavelength services, IP transit, MPLS-VPNs and Virtual-Point of Presence (VPoP) solutions via a network spanning Western Europe, the Nordic countries, Russia, the Baltic States, Poland, Ukraine and Georgia. Linxtelecom also offers co-location and dedicated server services from its data centers in Tallinn, Estonia and Moscow, with another state-of-the art data center to be launched soon in St. Petersburg.

As data traffic levels in the region continue to rise, providing PoP-to-PoP or end-to-end services via dark fiber has became more difficult since suitable transmission channels are sparse. Linxtelecom decided to deploy ADVA's FSP 3000 based on the platform's ability to flexibly support multiple services with a limited number of cards, its multi-haul capability, carrier-class reliability and ease-of-use.
