Finland's Corenet Taps ECI Telecom
PETACH TIKVEH, Israel -- ECI Telecom, a global provider of next-generation network solutions, announced that Corenet, a leading supplier of network services in Finland, has deployed ECI's Apollo packet-optical transport system to provide enterprise customers with mission critical solutions for data center connectivity.
Corenet selected the Apollo packet-optical transport system based on its outstanding ability to implement data center connectivity. Apollo's scalability from large-scale regional multi-node networks to smaller point-to-point solutions enables service providers like Corenet to provide reliable and scalable network services. Apollo supports the full range of Gigabit Ethernet and Fibre Channel interfaces used by data storage systems ‒ from 1GbE to 100GbE, and from FC1 to FC16.
Moreover, Apollo elevates data center connectivity through value-added features such as nanosecond ultra-low latency for real-time transactions, and layer 1 optical encryption with the highest AES-256 security level to protect data from interception via fiber taps.
“We had a specific set of requirements to provide our customers with metro-wide point-to-point connections among their enterprise locations and data centers to conduct data transactions that empower their business applications," states Corenet's COO, Hannu Muikku.
