Global Data Center Solutions Provider CyrusOne Partners With Infinera to Deploy
High-Speed Cloud-Based Services in Texas
DALLAS, TX and SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/13/13 -- Global
data center services provider CyrusOne (NASDAQ: CONE) and Infinera
(NASDAQ: INFN) announced today their partnership on CyrusOne's Texas
Internet Exchange (IX), the first statewide IX in the United States.
The IX network, powered by the Infinera DTN, based on 100 Gigabit per
second (Gb/s) photonic integrated circuits (PICs), is expected to
provide high-speed cloud-based services between CyrusOne's major
facilities and third-party carrier hotels in Austin, Dallas, Houston,
and San Antonio, as well as to customer data center locations.
Piloting since December 2012, the CyrusOne Texas IX is expected to
launch by the end of March 2013.
"The deployment of Infinera's Digital Optical Network provides us
with a robust platform for high-speed cloud-based services that will
ensure service flexibility, minimize bandwidth costs, simplify
network operations, and consolidate network architecture. In
addition, the Infinera solution reduces latency for active-active
disaster recovery requirements," said Josh Snowhorn, vice president
and general manager of interconnection at CyrusOne. "Infinera is one
of the most respected optical telecommunications suppliers in the
world. To provide this level of technology and support demonstrates
our level of dedication to the CyrusOne Texas IX platform."
The optical network supporting CyrusOne's IX network is based on the
Infinera DTN platform, embedded with Bandwidth Virtualization(TM).
Bandwidth Virtualization allows optical capacity to be deployed as
and when needed, without lengthy lead times or complex optical
engineering. Powered by Infinera's intelligent Generalized
Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS) software, the DTN platform
allows CyrusOne to quickly and easily provision bandwidth circuits on
their schedule and quickly respond to the needs of their dynamic
network. The simplicity of Infinera's DTN platform, based on PICs,
also provides CyrusOne with high reliability and a simple operational
experience, assisting data center operators to rapidly deploy and
operate their own optical networking systems.
"Data centers a
re an important part of the IT structure for large
enterprises, and Infinera is excited to partner with CyrusOne on
their Internet Exchange," said Scott Chandler, Infinera Vice
President, North America Sales. "With Infinera's Digital Optical
Network solution, CyrusOne benefits from the simplicity of operating
a high-speed optical network, designed to meet the needs of
