Corenet chooses ECI Telecom for Data Center and Cloud-Based ICT Connectivity
ECI Telecom’s Apollo packet-optical transport system provides mission critical data center connectivity for enterprise customers.
August 18, 2014 – Petach Tikveh, Israel and Helsinki, Finland – ECI Telecom, a global provider of next-generation network solutions, today announced that Corenet, a leading supplier of network services in Finland, has deployed ECI’s Apollo packet-optical transport system to provide enterprise customers with mission critical solutions for data center connectivity.
Corenet selected the Apollo packet-optical transport system based on its outstanding ability to implement data center connectivity. Apollo’s scalability from large-scale regional multi-node networks to smaller point-to-point solutions enables service providers like Corenet to provide reliable and scalable network services. Apollo supports the full range of Gigabit Ethernet and Fibre Channel interfaces used by data storage systems ‒ from 1GbE to 100GbE, and from FC1 to FC16.
Moreover, Apollo elevates data center connectivity through value-added features such as nanosecond ultra-low latency for real-time transactions, and layer 1 optical encryption with the highest AES-256 security level to protect data from interception via fiber taps.
“We had a specific set of requirements to provide our customers with metro-wide point-to-point connections among their enterprise locations and data centers to conduct data transactions that empower their business applications,” states Corenet’s COO, Hannu Muikku.
“We also needed to enable our customers to replicate data among multiple physical locations to ensure business continuity. As a result, we chose ECI’s Apollo solution, from a field of contenders, based on its performance and pricing. Corenet has a long standing relationship with ECI and is pleased to work with them to create new data center connectivity solutions for our enterprise customers.”
“ECI is proud to be a strategic supplier of optical transport solutions to Corenet and is committed to providing Corenet with cutting-edge capabilities to serve their customers in the rapidly expanding data center and cloud-based ICT environments,” states Nati Neuberger, Head of European Sales, ECI Telecom. “The Apollo solution is optimized to reside in enterprise and data center locations, or in service provider centers at the network’s edge..”
ECI has a global reputation for meeting corporate security mandates towards protecting customer data, through prevention of data interception via fiber tapping, through its LightSoft multi-layer network management suite, and physical security. In empowering leading edge data center connectivity, the Apollo family once again proves its optical transport versatility.
ECI Telecom will be participating at the SDN & OpenFlow World Congress in October 2014 in Germany. ECI’s Head of Solutions Marketing, Yoav Valadarsky, will be speaking under the session of Network & Transport – SDN, Infrastructure, Optical, Ethernet about SDN and how to use it for better network utilization & multi-layer optimization.
