France IX expands Internet exchange point capacity with Cube Optics WDM

France IX, the 8-month-old Parisian Internet exchange point (IXP) charged with consolidating peering in France, has decided to upgrade the capacity of the fiber-optic network links between its points of presence (PoPs) via WDM technology from Cube Optics, the German WDM technology company says.

France IX, the 8-month-old Parisian Internet exchange point (IXP) charged with consolidating peering in France, has decided to upgrade the capacity of the fiber-optic network links between its points of presence (PoPs) via WDM technology from Cube Optics, the German WDM technology company says.

The France IX will upgrade the bandwidth of its core backbone between the Interxion-5 and Telehouse-2 PoPs from 2x10 Gbps towards a total capacity of 120 Gbps. The connectivity among the IXP’s other four edge PoPs will grow to 20 Gbps or 40 Gbps as well.

Cube Optics says it will deliver its “Network Cubes” passive WDM technology to support the upgrade. Network Cubes enable management of individual DWDM wavelengths as well as groups of eight wavelengths as a single entity in a dense, low-latency platform, according to the company.
