Australia's Megaport Deploys Brocade MLXe Core Routers

Australia-based Megaport has selected Brocade's MLXe Core Routers will the goal of becoming a leading provider of network interconnection services across the Asia-Pacific region.   ASI Solutions serves as integrator for the project, which represents the first delivery of 100 Gbps network services in the region from Brocade.

Since its launch in July 2013, Megaport -- which currently extends to 18 major data centers in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane -- has connected over 700 Gbps in bandwidth as customers embrace its groundbreaking solutions. With strong demand expected to continue, Megaport wants to lead the charge to roll out 100 Gbps network interconnection services across the entire Asia-Pacific region.

"We want to revolutionize the way communications networks connect," said Bevan Slattery, Chief Executive Officer, Megaport. "For too long the industry has been dominated by providers that are operating on legacy technology and are often bound by restrictive price models based on limited capacity. Megaport's offering is based on a massive interconnection fabric designed to allow providers to use a single physical Ethernet interface to seamlessly connect with other parties. We aim to make a significant positive impact towards the operating costs borne by network operators, content hosts and cloud service providers."
