NDIX chooses Smartoptics for zero-touch and scalable 100G connectivity
Oslo, Norway – December 15, 2022 – Smartoptics, a leading provider of optical networking solutions, today announced that Dutch ethernet exchange provider NDIX has chosen its open line systems to future-proof its network. The solution will be used to upgrade to 100G and is 400G-ready with ease of use and scalability as key drivers.
NDIX is an international ethernet exchange with a network equivalent in size and scope to a tier 2 service provider with over 4,000 ports connected at more than one hundred data centers. More than 100 partners work with NDIX to reach customers ranging from small business owners to large government institutions Throughout the Netherlands as well as in Germany.
To meet its growing operations and capacity needs, NDIX sought a future-proof solution. Ease of use was an important driver for supporting rapid deployment and growth. The Smartoptics DCP-M family of open line systems was chosen for its zero-touch provisioning and plug-and-play experience.
“We carefully analyzed several potential solutions and Smartoptics stood out from the competition for its ease of use. In theory, it sounded very simple, almost too good to be true. When we actually tested one of these open line systems, we were blown away that it really was as easy in practice. Smartoptics keeps its promises, offering a true plug-and-play experience that helps us grow our network at scale. We appreciate their honesty and reliability as a partner and look forward to continuing future collaboration,” says Thomas van de Lagemaat, Manager NOC/Operations at NDIX.
The scalable solution also offers simple migration paths to 100G and 400G while being backwards compatible with 10G.
“Our DCP-M family of open line systems is engineered to give customers the freedom to run multiple bitrates in parallel while offering low latency and high density across the board. Upgrading bitrates is as simple as replacing the optics. This allows customers to continue using their existing infrastructure, which leads to greater ROI and enables disaggregated networking. At Smartoptics, we always aim to give our customers flexible solutions with the latest open standards and technology,” says Magnus Grenfeldt, CEO Smartoptics.
