The internet has changed the way we function, and life without network connectivity is almost unthinkable nowadays. Whether it’s streaming content from Netflix, shopping online, constantly checking social media, or working from home on cloud-based applications, our lives have been transformed in the last ten years.
The unsung hero in a world of apps, content streaming and the digital economy is the underlying network. Like a motorway that expands as we need it, we expect it to connect us without any fuss, and that’s pretty much what happens.
But behind the scenes, an enormous amount of planning, design, investment, and management takes place to enable the cool stuff to flow without a hitch.
The upgrade of the existing Infinera DWDM infrastructure that was previously provided by Fibre Technologies Ltd, to enable 100GB wavelengths for their core network, but also to future proof for even higher speeds in the near future.
The result is a solution that delivers todays required bandwidth for supporting their newly refreshed core, but also enables maximum growth in terms of multiple wavelengths of 100GB and secures the future requirements when the demand for higher speeds arrive.
“The latest phase in our multi-million-pound on-going network investment will see a massive performance upgrade in capacity and resilience.”
“Reliability and high-speed performance improves business efficiency and employee productivity, with consumer services and applications running effortlessly without any annoying buffering interruptions.”
