Fibre network for 400Gb

IRIDEOS, the new Italian ICT hub dedicated to Business and Public Administration has implemented an upgrade to its fiber optic network across Italy, allowing high-capacity connections up to 400 Gigabits.

“Leveraging the latest-generation technologies provided by Infinera, we now offer a diversified and protected network for high-speed data transfer and are ready to support the most innovative services requiring high-bandwidth capacity like high resolution video, real-time transmission, IoT, and augmented reality,” said Sandro Falleni, Head of Technologies and Systems of IRIDEOS. “The Infinera mTera platform, featuring an SDN-ready architecture, enables our network to deliver dynamically protected data transfer services over multiple paths with more flexibility in routing capacity.”


Built on a proprietary fiber optic infrastructure extending over 15,000 kilometers along the Italian motorways, the IRIDEOS network is based on ultra-low latency, direct optical paths ensuring high performance, and on an ASON architecture and GMPLS protocols for dynamic protection of services. Integrated super-channels allow very high-capacity transport that, according to the connections, for example between Milan and Rome, support up to 400 Gigabits.


The IRIDEOS backbone is directly managed by in-house staff to ensure the most reliable connections and a constant and timely monitoring of service performance.


“With the adoption of innovative technologies, IRIDEOS makes available to its domestic and international carrier customers, and OTTs, a powerful and scalable transmission platform that enables high-capacity services and, together with cloud and data center infrastructure and management services, supports enterprise digital transformation,” said Falleni.
