Cost efficient, high-capacity metro networking at IX Australia

Non-profit internet exchange IX Australia operates five peering points across the country, accessed by 20 major metropolitan data centers. The exchange recently decided to upgrade its metro network capacities to 100G, to cater for rapidly growing data traffic.

The new Smartoptics Open Line System DCP-M40, featuring embedded DWDM PAM4 transceivers, has provided IX Australia with a solution meeting all requirements in terms of reduced cost and power consumption along with a minimal footprint. Watch the video to see how the exchange benefits from a solution that is easy to maintain, high performance, high-bandwidth, and extremely easy to scale as demands continue to grow.
