Irideos fiber network ready to run up to 400 Gigabits

Milan, 20th December 2018 - IRIDEOS, the new Italian ICT hub dedicated to Business and Public Administration implemented an upgrade to its fiber optic network across Italy, allowing high-capacity connections up to 400 Gigabits.

"Leveraging the latest-generation technologies provided by Infinera, we now offer a diversified and protected network for high-speed data transfer and are ready to support the most innovative services requiring high-bandwidth capacity like high resolution video, real-time transmission, IoT, and augmented reality," said Sandro Falleni, Head of Technologies and Systems of IRIDEOS. "The Infinera mTera platform, featuring an SDN-ready architecture, enables our network to deliver dynamically protected data transfer services over multiple paths with more flexibility in routing capacity."

Built on a proprietary fiber optic infrastructure extending over 30,000 kilometers along the Italian motorways, the IRIDEOS network is based on ultra-low latency, direct optical paths ensuring high performance, and on an ASON architecture and GMPLS protocols for dynamic protection of services. Integrated super-channels allow very high-capacity transport that, according to the connections, for example between Milan and Rome, support up to 400 Gigabits.

The IRIDEOS backbone is directly managed by in-house staff to ensure the most reliable connections and a constant and timely monitoring of service performance.

"With the adoption of innovative technologies, IRIDEOS makes available to its domestic and international carrier customers and OTTs, a powerful and scalable transmission platform that enables high-capacity services and, together with cloud and data center infrastructure and management services, supports enterprise digital transformation," said Falleni.

"We're very proud to be a strategy technology partner to IRIDEOS, and look forward to continue delivering cutting-edge technologies that will help them stay at the forefront of service innovation," said Bob Jandro, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales at Infinera.

Milan, 17th September 2018. IRIDEOS, the new Italian ICT hub for companies and the Public Administration, obtained from the Uptime Institute Tier IV Design certification for its data center in Rome.

The Uptime Institute, the US agency that classifies the data centers according to four levels, has recognized to the Roman data center of IRIDEOS the highest level of guarantee for business continuity, with an availability of over 99.99%.
The Roman data center of IRIDEOS has a completely redundant architecture in terms of electrical systems, cooling and fiber optic network that allows maintaining the integrity of service without ever interrupting the availability of servers and network devices hosted on the date center.
"Tier IV criteria are based on the ability to detect and isolate a fault within critical systems in a facility without impacting on energy delivery and cooling to critical areas."- explains Sandro Falleni, Director of Technologies and Systems of IRIDEOS -" The IRIDEOS customers who entrust us with their systems have the highest guarantee of security and operational continuity, thanks also to redundant fiber connections and customized solutions for Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity. "
IRIDEOS thus enters the restricted number of companies in Italy to have obtained Tier IV certification and is the only one to have a Tier IV certified data center inside Rome's Grande Raccordo Anulare.
The IRIDEOS technological platform integrates 12 data centers, in Milan, Rome, Trento and Verona, all connected with proprietary fiber, the largest Italian private Internet exchange (Avalon) and a fiber-optic network of over 15,000 km along major highways. Two advanced cloud platforms (based on OpenStack and VMware) and a team dedicated to the management of customers' information systems complete IRIDEOS distinctive features.
Infrastructures and expertise allows IRIDEOS to better support companies in their digital transformation process, with advanced and customized connectivity, data center, cloud and outsourcing solutions.
