Berlin Commercial Internet Exchange scales distributed peering infrastructure with Coriant Groove

Share this on social media:

The Berlin Commercial Internet Exchange (BCIX) has selected the Coriant Groove G30 Network Disaggregation Platform to scale its distributed peering infrastructure to help meet growing demand for high-bandwidth interconnect capacity.

Connecting major data centre sites across Berlin, the platform will aid BCIX in the delivery of high-capacity neutral exchange services, including 100G Data Centre Interconnect (DCI) services that can be deployed quickly, easily, and cost-efficiently. Coriant Groove G30 was selected for its high density, low power consumption, and ease of operation, offering BCIX a cost-effective path to higher interconnect speeds, including 400G client side and 600G line side transmission – without the need for forklift upgrades or costly and complex flexi-grid ROADMs.

Christian Kroeger, managing director at BCIX Management GmbH explained: ‘The German economy continues to experience strong growth. The year over year doubling of IP traffic volumes we are seeing in the nation’s capital is further evidence of a robust business environment. After rigorous testing and analysis of competitive offerings, the Coriant solution demonstrated superior performance and flexibility, and met our stringent performance requirements for scalable, resilient, and low latency transport.’

Added Ronald Van der Kraan, managing director, Europe at Coriant: Berlin is an important internet hub not only for Germany, but also for the rest of Europe, and BCIX plays a critical role as a nexus point connecting many of the world’s most recognized brands and tech giants. We are excited to be working closely with BCIX as they enhance their customer value proposition and extend their market leadership as a premier provider of high-capacity internet exchange services.’

Over in Marseille, France, IP connectivity services provider Hopus also selected the platform to help evolve its resilient, high-capacity transport infrastructure (see HOPUS selects Coriant Groove platform to evolve transport infrastructure).
