Netnod chooses Cube Optics SOA amplifiers to deliver cost effective 100G services around Stockholm
Netnod is one of the largest Internet exchange points (IXPs) in Europe, with five locations in different cities in Sweden. "Netnod has the highest amount of traffic per network connected of all exchange points in Europe. We were looking at options to extend the reach of 100G within the Stockholm area" commented Kurt Erik Lindqvist, CEO of Netnod. "We are seeing an increasing requirement from our customers to expand their networks to 100G, but with low price points.
Our customers were requesting 100G but due to the prices of LR4 optics, we were not able to meet their price points, until we spoke with Cube Optics." Kurt Erik continues.
"Our SOA amplifier is world leading 40/100Gig solution for extending the reach of 1310nm LR4 transceivers and provides excellent value for money versus expensive ER4 100G options" explained Francis Nedvidek, CEO of Cube Optics "Cube Optics are continue to push the boundaries on 100G low cost options for the Metro area and we are pleased to be working with Netnod, and other leading internet exchange providers, to cost effectively extend the reach of 100Gig.
