[EN] 400G Network Deployed Using Cyan Blue Planet SDN
Cyan selected by GlobalConnect for 400G network.
GlobalConnect network spans Denmark with 12,000 fiber route kilometers and includes extensions into northern Germany and southern Sweden.
Cyan (CYNI) customer GlobalConnect, the leading Danish alternative provider of network and hosting services, announced it has completed the deployment of a 400G network employing the Cyan Blue Planet software-defined networking (SDN) system and Z-Series packet-optical platform throughout Denmark. The Denmark-wide 400G rollout is anchored by Cyan Z-Series packet-optical transport platforms (P-OTPs). The GlobalConnect network spans Denmark with 12,000 fiber route kilometers and includes extensions into northern Germany and southern Sweden. The network upgrade allows GlobalConnect to deliver a wide variety of ultra-high-capacity wavelength and Ethernet services to enterprise customers and data center operators, as well as wholesale services to other carriers. “Many people think that the name of the game for service providers is simply adding more and more capacity,” said Peter Olsen, GlobalConnect chief technical officer. ”While capacity is certainly crucial, unless we can drive enhanced capabilities and features into our network we will suffer from bandwidth commoditization. Working with Cyan, we’ve been able to architect a next-generation network that is operationally more efficient, delivers the scalability we need, and provides a means to deliver enhanced services to our customers.”
