Telehouse America/NYIIX has deployed ADVA’s FSP 3000 CloudConnect platform to tackle soaring data demand in its metro network.

Telehouse America, a provider of data centres, international internet exchanges and managed IT services, is using ADVA’s data center interconnect (DCI) platform to boost capacity among its NYIIX service locations and New York co-location facilities.

The high-density ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect infrastructure transports data at 200G and offers scalability to 400G and beyond, says ADVA. The solution now enables Telehouse America to meet the growing expectations of its peering customers and deliver ultra-high-speed connectivity in its NYIIX internet exchange point.

Akio Sugeno, VP, internet engineering, operations and business development at Telehouse America, said: “With ADVA’s DCI technology we’re addressing soaring bandwidth demand for our NYIIX Internet exchange points. ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect is empowering us to connect our customers’ data with more efficiency, more agility and much more speed.”

Sugeno said the solution enabled the provider to easily deliver multi-terabit capacity over diversely routed and protected fibre links. Its small footprint and high density, he said, are key features, along with its “innate capacity to scale”. Sugeno said: “Now we know we have a future-proof solution that will grow alongside the ambitions of our customers.”

Telehouse America’s upgraded NYIIX infrastructure features ADVA’s open optical layer enhanced with FSP 3000 QuadFlex capabilities. This enables a single chassis to support multi-terabit transmissions over long distances without the need for signal regeneration.

“With this deployment, NYIIX is taking peering in the North Eastern United States to a whole new level,” said John Scherzinger, senior VP of sales in North America for ADVA. “As the US’ longest-serving internet exchange point and carrier-neutral data centre provider, Telehouse America is not just a market leader but also a technology leader.

“It’s now ensuring that it can answer the needs of enterprises both currently and in the future, providing its customers with a vital competitive edge.”

There are 47 Telehouse-branded data centres in 23 cities across Asia, Africa, North America and EMEA. This January, Telehouse announced the availability of Amazon Web Services (AWS) Direct Connect at the Telehouse London Docklands site, providing Telehouse customers with private, dedicated and secure access to Amazon Web Services.
