Equinix Selects BTI Systems Solutions for Interconnecting Data Centers in 
First Phase of Broader Deployment Leverages BTI's Intelligent
Networking Software and Systems to Scale Performance, Simplify
Operations and Enable New Services 
OTTAWA and BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/17/13 --  BTI Systems,
the software and networking leader empowering content and service
providers to capitalize on trends in cloud services, mobility and
Internet video, today announced that Equinix, Inc. (NASDAQ: EQIX),
the global interconnection and data center company, has deployed
BTI's intelligent networking solutions to interconnect data centers
in Singapore. 
Equinix operates International Business Exchange(TM) (IBX(R)) data
centers in 31 markets across 15 countries in the Americas, EMEA, and
Asia-Pacific. The Singapore data centers provide over 347,000 sq. ft.
of colocation space with access to top Singapore and global markets.  
"Housing the widest selection of international and regional networks,
our data centers in Singapore provide access to one of the world's
three GRX peering points and the largest Internet Exchange point in
South-East Asia," said Equinix Director of Network Engineering and
Operations, APAC Raphael Ho. "Our customers include major financial
institutions and network and cloud providers that rely on our data
centers to support their operations. To meet strong demand from these
customers, we continue to improve our data center interconnection
services. BTI offered us an integrated multilayer solution with
higher density and more capacity, simplified operations, and a
seamless migration path to 100G." 
"We are extremely pleased to work with Equinix, one of the world's
largest providers of data center services with an unequaled
reputation as a leader in powering the digital economy," said BTI
President and CEO Steve Waszak. "Cloud data center traffic is
expected to grow six-fold by 2016 -- with inter-data center traffic
representing the equivalent of 1.7 trillion hours of online HD video
streaming. And data center to data center traffic is growing three to
four times faster than client to data center traffic. These factors
make data center interconnections critical business enablers,
allowing service providers to virtualize their compute, storage and
security resources across multiple data centers as a single pool to
optimize service delivery. We look forward to working closely with
Equinix as the company maximizes its data center and network assets
in Singapore." 
Equinix has deployed BTI's Data Center Interconnect solution,
including the BTI 7000 Series, which is a compact, modular and
easy-to-use intelligent networking system purpose-built to unify
packet and optical service delivery into one platform for
network-layer consolidation. The BTI 7000 Series offered Equinix a
scalable 10G to 100G Coherent WDM optical layer and multidegree ROADM
Dynamic Optical Layer delivering any wavelength anywhere to simplify
network deployment and operations. Equinix also chose the BTI proNX
Management and Control Software, a modular, flexible software
platform that integrates seamlessly into any operating environment to
expedite service provisioning, simplify monitoring and management,
and speed time to deployment. Equinix plans to move to the new BTI
7800 Series Intelligent Cloud Connect as they add 100G capabilities.
Additionally, BTI will provide BTI ServiceLink Support Services,
including an Advanced Replacement program, to ensure efficient
deployment and assist with uninterrupted operation of Equinix's
Key benefits Equinix has achieved by deploying BTI solutions for
interconnecting its Singapore data centers include: 

--  20% more capacity by delivering 96 channels per fiber pair
--  35% in space saving with the smallest footprint per 10G wave
--  15% reduction in power consumption
--  Operational savings and simplification through service management
--  Elimination of the cost of an optical transponder through an
    integrated packet optical approach
--  Reduction of training costs and increased Quality of Service through
    converged packet optical layers in a single platform
--  Future-proof solution moving seamlessly from 10G to 100G
--  Fully self-configuring dynamic ROADM services, which simplify
    deployment and operations

BTI provides solutions that address the cloud and data center network
choke points by significantly improving inter-data center
connectivity between data centers and users; data centers to peering
points; data centers to data centers; and data centers to partners.
The company recently announced Intelligent Cloud Connect, an open
software-rich platform that combines network intelligence and
application awareness with significantly expanded capacity and scale.
Intelligent Cloud Connect increases cloud connectivity performance --
quadrupling capacity and scale, reducing latency by half, and
increasing network applications performance by as much as 10 times --
while significantly improving operational efficiencies, network
control and service innovation compared to legacy solutions. 
BTI additionally announced that Equinix CTO Lane Patterson, and BTI
Vice President of Platform Solutions Chandra Pandey, will be speaking
on a panel at GigaOM Structure on Thursday, June 20, 2013 at 8:30
a.m. PT. BTI is also participating at CommunicAsia 2013 in Booth
