Vtesse, a UK business communications provider, has extended its ROADM (News - Alert) (Re-configurable Optical Add Drop Multiplexers) network to connect Telehouse London data centers.
Thanks to the upgrades, Telehouse’s customers will now gain access to ultra-high bandwidth solutions in the UK’s shortest possible lead-times, with 10Gbps connectivity available in just 15 working days – a drastic reduction on the average industry range of 40 to 60 work days.
Reconfigurable Optical Add Drop Multiplexers (ROADM) represent the next generation of high capacity DWDM networks. Utilizing Tellabs (News - Alert) 7100 Nano Optical Transport System, Vtesse is the one of the first carriers in the UK to deploy ROADM networks extensively
“With the increase in on-demand IT cloud solutions, we are seeing a corresponding need for fast turn up of high speed networks, as well as more agile IT infrastructures. Vtesse is responding by offering Gigabit speed services over our ROADM network in just 15 working days, less than half the current industry lead-time,” said Paul Besley, general manager sales and marketing, Vtesse, in a statement.
Besley said that by connecting Telehouse’s data centers to the company’s expanding ROADM network, Telehouse customers can now rapidly connect Docklands to other ROADM sites, as well as to key London locations.
“We are delighted to extend the Vtesse ROADM capability into Telehouse. We pride ourselves in offering customers the unbeatable level of network capability on the data centre market and Vtesse adds to the vast array of options available at our site,” Michelle Reid, sales and marketing director, Telehouse.
Telehouse provides global Tier III data centers, connectivity and managed ICT solutions, providing secure and resilient infrastructure for mission-critical IT systems.
Earlier this month, Vtesse Networks announced that, following its new Impact Level 2 (IL2) security certification, it has been selected by assured cloud services provider, Skyscape Cloud Services, to support the company’s growing UK public sector customer base.
Following a network upgrade program during 2012, Vtesse has now achieved IL2 assurance certification under the CAS (T) (CESG Assured Service (Telecommunications)), which ensures that its high capacity optical networking services comply with the government’s ‘Protectively Marked Information’ security system.
Vtesse’s network is now certified to carry government data at Impact Level 2 and protect up to Impact Level 4 with additional controls, a vital requirement for Skyscape as it handles high volumes of sensitive customer data.
