Core-Backbone Takes First 400GE Order at LINX

The London Internet Exchange (LINX) have announced that Core-Backbone have placed the first order for their new 400GE service.

Based in Germany, Core-Backbone operates an international, secure, and high-availability network around the world and have been fast to adopt 400GE services at Internet Exchange Points across Europe.

Andreas Goetz, Head of Sales and Marketing for Core-Backbone says;

“We are happy to be the first customer at LINX deploying a 400G port at the exchange. This helps us to improve our network quality and provide our customers with extended services.”

“LINX is an important player for us, due to its strategic location, connected through several submarine cables with Americas and Africa. Lately we have replaced three 100Gbps exchange ports with one 400Gbps, which has right now the biggest port-size in the whole market.”

LINX formally introduced the new 400GE interconnection service earlier this month as they announced Nokia had been selected as the service delivery partner. Nokia are supplying their FP silicon powered 7750 Service Router (SR) platforms with 400GE network interfaces. This upgrades the LINX network and will allow them to support services at speeds of up to 400GE initially with the ability to seamlessly grow capacity and scale to higher speeds in the future

Jennifer Holmes, LINX CCO welcomed Core-Backbone as the first customer for this service;

“We are really excited to be rolling out the 400GE service to our members and thank Core-backbone for snapping up the first order! We are readily delivering this service in London now and taking any enquiries for 400GE at any of our other interconnection platforms across the UK and US.”

This new service for LINX follows months of research, negotiations and testing at their labs to ensure a seamless integration when deployed.
