CyrusOne Picks BTI for Cloud + DC Connectivity

CyrusOne is now deploying BTI’s Cloud Networking and Data Center Interconnect Solutions in metro Chicago and metro Virginia.

Specifically, CyrusOne has deployed the BTI 7800 Series Intelligent Cloud Connect platform, the BTI 7000 Series Packet Optical platform with ROADM and the BTI proNX Service Manager to connect CyrusOne data centers in Lombard, IL to the main downtown Chicago telecommunications hub. Additionally, CyrusOne is capitalizing on BTI’s solutions to expand its market reach by connecting a new data center facility in the Northern Virginia metro market to the CyrusOne national network footprint.

The SDN-enabled BTI 7800 Series Intelligent Cloud Connect is purpose-built to integrate high-capacity optical switching and MPLS Label Switch Routing (LSR) with Network Functions Virtualization (NFV)-based applications.

The BTI 7000 Series is a modular system that unifies packet and optical service delivery into one platform for network-layer consolidation and improved efficiencies. It integrates Ethernet switching, 10G WDM optical layer and Dynamic Optical Layer ROADM-on-a-blade support to simplify network deployment and operations.
