This new infrastructure is all about removing limitations in our datacenter interconnect. By going beyond other R&E networks and adopting low-latency 32Gbit/s Fibre Channel, we’re maximizing the value of our precious fiber resources and giving students, researchers and professors the benefit of high data capacity secured by synchronous mirroring. What’s more, it enables our operators to add capacity on the fly. Throughout this project, we’ve worked closely with ADVA and Arcadiz Telecom. The excellent level of cooperation and the expertise of their engineers ensured smooth planning, preparation and implementation. Arcadiz Telecom has been our strategic partner since 2011 and we know we’re in safe hands relying on their ongoing support.
