Interoute’s lit fibre solution balances the increasing need to be able to provide our customers with rapid delivery of high bandwidth network capability with the flexibility to continue to grow their network with minimum service disruption.
Traditionally, when a network provider wishes to deploy a high bandwidth network their options are limited, they can either choose to lease individual multiple wavelengths to connect their sites or invest in fibre and site infrastructure to deploy their own DWDM systems. Whilst the former lacks the ability to scale in a cost effective manner, the timescales of the latter can often prohibitive.
Interoute have developed a product that accelerates the time to market of new large network deployment – especially in regions where our customers own expertise may not be as extensive as within their own region. The key elements that slow down new network deployment are:
Typical users of interoute’s lit fibre service include Incumbent carriers looking for high capacity European networks without the overhead of running them in multiple countries, Global operators looking for a low touch high capacity European network and submarine cable operators looking for high capacity backhaul networks.
