Metro Connect – Managed Wave Solution Now Available at Interxion: A Digital Realty Company
Interxion: A Digital Realty Company (NYSE: DLR) and a leading European provider of carrier- and cloud-neutral colocation data centre solutions, announced today the availability of its Metro Connect – Managed Wave solution at its North East Paris campus. Interxion Metro Connect – Managed Wave provides fully managed and monitored point-to-point connectivity allowing businesses to link multiple deployments and reach connected communities beyond the data centre facility where they are located.
“In today’s climate where digital business is becoming increasingly essential, low latency, reliable connectivity and strong performance have never been more important,” says Fabrice Coquio, Managing Director, Interxion France.
“With the new availability of Metro Connect – Managed Wave at Interxion’s North East Paris campus, our customers can seamlessly connect to their business partners to deliver the best possible user experience to their customers.”
Powered by networking systems, services, and software company Ciena (NYSE: CIEN), Interxion’s Metro Connect – Managed Wave is deployed with diverse paths for full redundancy and reliability, offering customers a variety of bandwidth capabilities and access to connected communities of interest outside the walls of their primary data centre. With Interxion providing 24x7 oversight along with all the equipment required to interconnect both parties, customers no longer need to manage connections on their own or purchase optical interfaces that can be distance-sensitive and expensive.
“Through our Waveserver® Ai data centre interconnect (DCI) platform and the Manage, Control, Plan (MCP) domain controller, Interxion customers benefit from lightspeed access and performance awareness across data centres in the North East Paris Campus and a dedicated optical path offering low latency and no packet loss,” says Jean David Fabre, EMEA’s Global Content Network advisor, Ciena.
This announcement comes as part of a larger rollout of Metro Connect – Managed Wave services across Europe, with availability already in place at Interxion campuses in Marseille, Amsterdam, Brussels and Dublin. Metro Connect – Managed Wave serves as an alternative option to Interxion’s existing Metro Connect – Fibre service, which is still available for customers who prefer to manage and monitor connections on their own. Both solutions are now fully standardized in all markets where Interxion has multiple campuses, so customers receive the same experience across Europe.
Interxion’s Metro Connect – Managed Wave is now available to customers of the North East Paris campus comprising PAR1, PAR2, PAR3, PAR5 and PAR7 facilities. Customer portal ordering is available with a three-business day installation SLA. There is also an option to expedite the order.
