Novoserve chooses Smartoptics for high-capacity and cost-efficient DWDM
Oslo, Norway – September 21, 2023 – Smartoptics, a leading provider of optical networking solutions, today announced that Novoserve, an innovative Dutch Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider, has chosen Smartoptics as its preferred optical transport supplier. Smartoptics open line systems, optics and transponders are used to provide a high-capacity and cost-efficient DWDM solution for the Dutch IaaS provider’s backbone network.
Novoserve specializes in bare metal hosting solutions with over 10TB capacity, 7,000 dedicated servers deployed and 10 points of presence. The IaaS provider has three data centers in the Netherlands and one in the US state of New Jersey. To meet growing bandwidth needs, Novoserve needed to upgrade the capacity of its backbone network. After evaluating Smartoptics open line systems and a competing solution, a decision was made to move forward with Smartoptics based on advantages including ease of use, 400G-readiness and cost efficiency.
“Smartoptics offers a resilient and truly plug-and-play solution that’s so easy I hardly even needed the management interface. The solution is also 400G-ready, which provides a cost-efficient and simple migration path once we upgrade switches and routers. We have a great personal relationship with Smartoptics – everything is fast, flexible and simple – the way it should be. From now on we are turning to Smartoptics first for all our optical transport needs,” says Rens Ariens, CTO, Novoserve.
Following the Smartoptics deployments in 2023, Novoserve has ten DCP-M open line systems with 84 100G DWDM links. These links interconnect the data centers in the Netherlands and deliver 8.4TB of capacity. The DCP-1203 transponder is also used for a breakout application from 400G to four times 100G.
“Our DCP-404 muxponder has been a popular choice for 100G aggregation since its release last year. This year, we launched the the DCP-1203 transponder, which provides triple the capacity of the DCP-404 with three 400G ports. Novoserve’s network has significant traffic, making this high-density solution well aligned with their needs. We are pleased to have earned Novoserve’s trust and to showcase the vast potential of the DCP-1203 in one of its first deployments,” says Magnus Grenfeldt, CEO, Smartoptics.
