SHANGHAI -- Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solution provider, has today announced that AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange), the world's leading Internet Exchange located in The Netherlands, has selected the Huawei OSN902 100G WDM data center solution to maintain an economical and efficient metro area network as traffic and capacity continues to grow in the era of cloud, online video and IoT. Huawei OSN902 provides high security encryption, high capacity, simple management with ultra-low power and front-to-back cooling for a green IT and data center environment.
Working closely with AMS-IX to understand its unique set of needs and challenges, Huawei provided a tailored WDM exchange solution. Companies requiring complex data center solutions are typically confronted with a number of problems, for example, incompatibility between traditional WDM equipment, creating data center inefficiencies and maintenance of optical equipment automation.
"As enterprises and service providers adopt an ever increasing number of big data and cloud-based solutions, catering for the huge demands on their network capacity is a constant challenge for Internet Exchanges," commented Wonder Wang, CEO Huawei Technologies Netherlands. "From now on, AMS-IX will be able to easily manage the traffic in its metro area network for the benefit of millions of end-users."
"AMS-IX has grown from two Points-of-Presence into a metro area network, built on the use of hundreds of fibers. In the past year we have been looking for a Data Center Interconnect (DCI) solution to bring down cost and implementation time for extra bandwidth while ensuring a future-proof network for our customers," commented Henk Steenman, CTO of AMS-IX. "With its OSN902, Huawei has delivered a solution that perfectly fits these requirements. As we were able to work closely with Huawei they could provide us with a tailored, cost-efficient and easy to manage DCI solution."
