GTT enhances European fibre networks

Share this on social media:

GTT Communications had made upgrades to its fibre network across a number of European routes. These are designed to enhance the capacity and performance capability of the service provider’s tier 1 global IP network footprint for enterprise and carrier clients.

The upgraded routes are those which connect network points of presence in London, Amsterdam, Frankfurt and Paris, including the subsea link between the United Kingdom and The Netherlands, along with an additional route in southern Europe that connects Madrid and Marseille.

More fibre capacity has additionally been deployed on its metro networks in Paris and Marseille. The upgrade to the Marseille metro network extends to multiple subsea cable landing stations. The company has also expanded its European network footprint by deploying a new point of presence in Belgrade, Serbia.

To complete the upgrades, GTT employed Infinera’s FlexILS line system and ICE4 optical engine with instant bandwidth. These technologies work together to double network capacity, enhance the network’s software-defined capabilities and provide clients with faster service delivery.

Rick Calder, GTT president and CEO said: ‘Europe is a major market for GTT, and we are continuing to invest in our advanced network infrastructure to support clients’ ever-increasing bandwidth requirements. This is a further demonstration of GTT’s commitment to deliver on its purpose to connect people across organisations, around the world and to every application in the cloud.’
