IRIDEOS, the new Italian ICT hub dedicated to Business and Public Administration implemented an upgrade to its fiber optic network across Italy, allowing high-capacity connections up to 400 Gigabits.
“Leveraging the latest-generation technologies provided by Infinera, we now offer a diversified and protected network for high-speed data transfer and are ready to support the most innovative services requiring high-bandwidth capacity like high resolution video, real-time transmission, IoT, and augmented reality,” said Sandro Falleni, Head of Technologies and Systems of IRIDEOS. “The Infinera mTera platform, featuring an SDN-ready architecture, enables our network to deliver dynamically protected data transfer services over multiple paths with more flexibility in routing capacity.”
Built on a proprietary fiber optic infrastructure extending over 30,000 kilometers along the Italian motorways and the Adriatic backbone, the IRIDEOS network is based on ultra-low latency, direct optical paths ensuring high performance, and on an ASON architecture and GMPLS protocols for dynamic protection of services. Integrated super-channels allow very high-capacity transport that, according to the connections, for example between Milan and Rome, support up to 400 Gigabits.
The IRIDEOS backbone is directly managed by in-house staff to ensure the most reliable connections and a constant and timely monitoring of service performance.
“With the adoption of innovative technologies, IRIDEOS makes available to its domestic and international carrier customers and OTTs, a powerful and scalable transmission network that enables high-capacity services. Together with cloud and data center infrastructure and management services we fully support the enterprise digital transformation.” said Falleni.
“We’re very proud to be a strategy technology partner to IRIDEOS and look forward to continue delivering cutting-edge technologies that will help them stay at the forefront of service innovation,” said Bob Jandro, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales at Infinera.
