OTTAWA -- BTI Systems, an award-winning provider of cloud and metro networking software and systems to content, colocation and service providers around the world, today announced that Interxion (NYSE: INXN) has chosen BTIís Cloud Networking Solution for its Cloud Connect platform, a new service for enterprise and service provider customers.

The initial deployments will be in London, Frankfurt and Amsterdam, with eight other markets to follow. Additionally, Interxion chose BTI to provide operations and maintenance support.

Interxion is a leading Pan-European provider of cloud and carrier-neutral colocation data center services. With more than 1,400 customers through 37 data centers across 11 countries, Interxion provides enterprises with access to mission-critical applications and content for end consumers, with excellent response time and performance. Interxionís data centers host the latest technology solutions, while conserving space, power and cooling with reliability and performance that goes beyond industry standards.

ďAs one of Europeís leading colocation providers, it is vital that we provide our customers with direct, high-performance, low-latency connectivity to the major cloud providers,Ē said Interxionís Vice President, Product Management and Channel Development, Mario Galvez. ďOur Cloud Connect platform, which we will launch this summer, will enable high-speed connectivity to multiple cloud providers with faster provisioning and the highest levels of security. BTI has provided us with a Ďone-stopí approach combining: a high-density, SDN-enabled converged packet optical platform; a software control layer with open APIs to enable customer self-service portals; and a customized technical and support plan. BTIís Cloud Networking Solution also offers us a clear migration path to high-layer intelligence and 100G capacity.Ē

Colocation providers are increasingly tapping into the massive cloud market opportunity. Enterprises across all industries are turning to the cloud to improve service velocity and reach, and manage costs. With multiple cloud services available, colocation providers, such as Interxion, have recognized they have to provide high-bandwidth, low-latency cloud connections to multiple cloud providers that bypass the public Internet.

BTIís Cloud Networking Solution enables colocation providers to deliver value-added cloud connectivity services to enterprises, combining the economics and service velocity of public clouds with the performance, reliability and security of private connections. Additionally, BTIís Cloud Networking Solution is ideal for hybrid cloud deployments, enabling enterprises to instantiate private clouds inside the colocation data center and leverage a public cloud provider for overflow, business continuity, backup or sandbox development.

BTIís Senior Vice President, Global Marketing, Sally Bament, added, ďOne of the features supported through our Cloud Networking Solution is Interxionís customer self-service portal, which sets up cloud connections and adjusts bandwidth to satisfy customer demands and application requirements.Ē

Interxionís Cloud Connect leverages BTIís Cloud Networking Solution, which includes BTIís SDN-enabled packet optical platforms as well as the BTI proNX Control Software and SLA Portal. The BTI packet optical networking systems are purpose-built to unify packet and optical service delivery into one platform for network-layer consolidation, integrating MEF Carrier Ethernet compliant switching, a scalable 10G to 100G Coherent WDM optical layer and 4 Degree ROADM Dynamic Optical Layer to simplify network deployment and operations.

BTIís proNX Control Software provides secure and flexible end-to-end management of the network and enables seamless integration with Interxionís self-service portal through open APIs, allowing the flexibility for customers to customize services to suit their needs. Additionally, the BTI proNX SLA Portal supports SLA monitoring in a highly simplified manner, while still providing extensive tracking, monitoring and reporting capabilities. It enables access to SLA data for end-to-end service assurance.

Even when there's a strong pipeline of female talent in the comms industry, it tends to leak all the way to the top. McKinsey & Company says women experience pipeline leakage at three primary points: being unable to enter, being stuck in the middle or being locked out of the top. Each pipeline pain point presents its own challenges, but also opportunities to stop the leak. Wireless operator Sprint is making a conscious effort to improve its own pipeline from new recruits to the C-suite, and it wants the rest of the industry to do the same. In this Women in Comms radio show, WiC Board Member and Sprint Vice President of Enterprise Sales Nelly Pitocco will give us her take on the industry's pipeline challenges. Pitocco, who joined Sprint in May and has spent 20 years in the comms industry, will also offer solutions, share how Sprint is tackling the challenge within its own organization and take your questions live on air.
