Connectivity and infrastructure outsourcing services supplier Epsilon Telecommunications has unveiled the Cloud Link eXchange (CloudLX) service. Built upon the Cloud Exchange platform from BTI Systems, the service leverages Epsilon's global MPLS backbone network to offer data center operators and service providers a suite of service enablement tools and direct network connectivity to an extensive cloud ecosystem.

CloudLX is available in metro London, Singapore, New York, and Frankfurt. Epsilon expects to complete extensions to other markets by the second quarter of this year. The service provider says the new service will leverage its more than 500 carrier relationships, with coverage in 170 countries and over 60 points-of-presence.

"CloudLX leverages our global network footprint to enable customers to gain direct connectivity to the leading cloud providers, and a dedicated online portal to seamlessly provision private virtualized connections," said Epsilon Telecommunications CEO Jerzy (George) Szlosarek. "With the BTI Cloud Exchange solution powering our service offering, we provide our customers cloud diversity, managed end-to-end connectivity and efficient operations."

BTI's role includes provision of its SDN-architected BTI proNX Control software. Epsilon will use the software as the basis of the CloudLX customer self-service portal, designed to enable customers to create connections and provision services. For its fiber-optic network needs, Epsilon has deployed 100-Gbps capable BTI 7800 Series Intelligent Cloud Connect systems and the BTI 7000 Series packet-optical transport systems with integrated BTI packetVX (PVX) modules for Ethernet services support.

Epsilon is a longstanding BTI customer (see, for example, "Epsilon Telecommunications deploys BTI Systems’ Dynamic Optical Layer" and "Epsilon Telecommunications expands London metro capacity with BTI Systems gear").

"Innovative network providers are deploying value-added, packet-optical infrastructure solutions purpose-built for the cloud, to expand reach and performance, contain costs and accelerate the pace of innovation," stated Sally Bament, BTI Systems senior vice president of global marketing. "Point-to-point transport solutions offer simple, high-capacity connectivity between two points, but without the flexibility and intelligence to offer virtualized, on-demand access services to a variety of distributed cloud-based resources."

BTI Systems is in the process of being acquired by Juniper Networks (see "Juniper Networks to buy BTI Systems").
