Fujitsu 1FINITY™ and Virtuora® Platforms Selected by West Corporation to Increase Reliability and Scalability of Enterprise Data Network
Network Communications, Inc. today announced that the 1FINITY
platforms were deployed in a live 200G data center interconnect (DCI)
network by West
Corporation, a global provider of communication and network
In order to ensure scalable and resilient enterprise data services, West
chose to deploy enhanced optical transport on top of their existing
network to interconnect data centers in four key metro areas: Atlanta,
Dallas, Denver and Phoenix. Seeking a reliable, open architecture
solution to handle mission-critical data traffic, West turned to
Fujitsu (News - Alert), a trusted supplier they have worked with for more than a decade
since first deploying the FLASHWAVE® Packet Optical
In 2018, West provisioned high-performance 1FINITY
T310 Transport blades in a 200 Gbps alien wavelengt configuration,
introducing greater capacity, speed, efficiency and resiliency to their
existing optical network platform. West also deployed the Virtuora
Network Control Solution to simplify operations for their entire
network, facilitating scalability and agility to meet real-time capacity
demands with an open, programmable platform.
"The disaggregated, blade-based 1FINITY transport solution is an ideal
upgrade for West's DCI network, delivering the speed and performance
their clients have come to expect," said Annie Bogue, head of sales and
marketing, Fujitsu Network Communications (News - Alert), Inc. "By pairing the 1FINITY
T310 blades with our open-source, adaptable Virtuora management system,
West can easily scale capacity when and where it's needed, vastly
improving the overall efficiency of their network."
"At West, we help businesses effectively collaborate and connect with
their audiences through reliable, productive communications, operating
at the speed and scale necessary to capitalize on emerging business
opportunities," said Juan Rosero, vice president of engineering, West
Corporation. "Fujitsu understands the importance of transporting
