CHATSWORTH, Calif. - MRV Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRVC) (“MRV”), a leading provider of innovative packet and optical solutions, announced today that i3D.net, a globally operating managed hosting provider, has selected the OptiDriver optical transport platform to increase capacity up to 400G to Amsterdam, one of the largest Internet backbones in the world.

The i3D.net network includes multiple Tier 1 carriers and large Internet exchanges across the globe—an optimized mix that enables i3D.net to guarantee redundancy, maximum performance and low latency. The OptiDriver solution provides i3D.net with the flexible scalability and intelligence to simplify network management and provisioning while expanding its portfolio of services and customers.

i3D.net operates a 344 Gigabit optical network with 8,000 servers in 16 data centers across six continents. The company provides 24/7 support for game and corporate server hosting, as well as specialty solutions such as big data, Hadoop, global load balancing, MPLS and IP transit. When looking to expand its portfolio to include cloud services, colocation, infrastructure-as-a-service and more, i3D.net required a solution that could seamlessly increase capacity on its optical fiber network.

“We are the expert in scaling capacity on a global scale, and MRV helps us support continued growth in network traffic while streamlining service delivery and management,” said Stijn Koster, CEO for i3D.net. “Throughout the installation, MRV worked closely with us to plan and build our network to create a foundation that will facilitate future growth. The OptiDriver platform allows us to rapidly increase capacity in 10G increments for colocation racks, dedicated servers, cloud services and web hosting. This will allow us to effortlessly increase bandwidth as we need it, making scalability simple and manageable.”

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
