Nokia has announced the further expansion of its relationship with NL-ix, one of Europe’s largest distributed Internet Exchange Providers (IXP), extending the rollout of 7750 Service Routers (SR) with speeds of up to 800GE interfaces from the Netherlands to the more than 100 data centres NL-ix operates continent wide.
NL-ix can now offer dedicated enterprise business IX services by providing five-nines network uptime, any port at any speed up to 800GE, while consuming less energy and real estate.
Already among the top global IX’s, NL-ix had previously deployed the Nokia800GE systems in its Amsterdam data centres, where daily average traffic regularly peaked above 8 Tb/s in 2023. To accommodate traffic peaks across the entire network, NL-ix will deploy a range of Nokia’s SR family of IP routers, including large-scale FP5-based multi-slot systems for core routing, to smaller IP routers built for edge and satellite-based applications.
Now, with the deployment of Nokia’s 800GE systems Europe-wide, NL-ix is supercharging its network, transforming from a localised IX into a European business connectivity platform capable of providing carrier-grade resiliency that supports five-nines availability of its network services.
With breadth, resiliency, speed and sustainability, NL-ix is uniquely positioned to attract new customers in sectors such as banking, insurance and healthcare who have traditionally relied on exclusive private networks to achieve these same levels of security, reliability and deterministic service for much of their business transactions.Click below to share this article
