Interoute Powers 100GigE Services Across Europe with Infinera

Interoute, which operates a pan-European network spanning across 60,000km of lit fiber, has activated 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) services using Infinera's DTN platform -- making it the first to broadly offer 100 GbE services across the continent.

Interoute was among the first in Europe to deploy Infinera’s DTN four years ago.

Interoute said that will carriers and enterprises are already using multiple 10 Gbps) services, which can become complex and expensive, the option of 100 GbE  provides higher bandwidth efficiency, lower cost per Gbps, and greater simplicity.

"Interoute and Infinera have worked together to integrate industry leading technology for a number of years,” said Matthew Finnie, CTO at Interoute. "The ability to adapt our existing Infinera DTN network to 100 GbE next-generation services demonstrates the inherent value of the Infinera architecture. It protects our investment for the future services that we need to provide our customers to stay competitive."

"Interoute’s network is used by major incumbents and service providers throughout Europe," said Chris Champion, vice president, EMEA sales at Infinera. "As one of Infinera’s leading customers worldwide, we are excited to play a key part in not only increasing capacity on Interoute's network but also working closely with Interoute to grow its network footprint with Infinera's solutions. The Infinera DTN has delivered for Interoute a cost-effective, high capacity network for its customers in very short time frames."
