Denmark ups cloud, network services with Ciena DCI

Created April 13, 2022
News and Business Denmark, part of the hosting and cloud solutions Group, has selected Ciena’s Waveserver AI platform to serve as the foundation for its WAN-ring, providing point-to-point metro data centre interconnect (DCI) network service between sites.

Ciena’s Waveserver Ai platform delivers up to 2.4 Tbps in a single rack unit to tackle large scalability challenges.  Intuitive to install and easy to operate, Waveserver Ai utilises a familiar operational toolset and can be managed through industry-standard open APIs and data models.  The platform’s design helps reduce real estate costs while providing the capacity needed to support surging bandwidth demands in the metro.

“We needed a solution to extend the capabilities of our current dark fibre infrastructure. It needed to be powerful, easy to use, and extremely stable while also being ultra-efficient in terms of power and size,” said Michael Munk Lassen, principal systems architect & head of Technology, Infrastructure, “Ciena’s Waveserver Ai platform meets this need and enables us to create a simple point-to-point network between sites currently providing up to 8x100G on a single dark fibre which can be scaled further if needed.”

“Cloud and content providers across the globe are investing in their DCI capabilities to increase network efficiency, reduce energy consumption and enable highly resilient connectivity at the edge of their network,” said Jean David Fabre, director, Datacentre Connectivity Solutions, Ciena. “Rolling out Ciena’s Waverserver Ai platform allows Denmark to provide cutting-edge services.”
