Net2EZ deploys Transmode for U.S. data center interconnect

Optical transport systems developer Transmode says that Net2EZ, a US-based managed data center service provider, has upgraded its high-speed optical network using Transmode's TM-Series and TG-Series optical networking platforms.

Optical transport systems developer Transmode says that Net2EZ, a US-based managed data center service provider, has upgraded its high-speed optical network using Transmode's TM-Series and TG-Series optical networking platforms.

Net2EZ replaced its existing DWDM equipment with Transmode's platforms to increase the capacity of its network, Transmode says. The new protected fiber ring is designed to offer uninterrupted service to seven data centers across the United States with multiple 10G and 1G connections. At the same time, Net2EZ has added three new data centers to the network. Net2EZ plans to replicate this network architecture as they continue their expansion across the US.

The network uses the TM-Series 10G transponders with forward error correction for long-haul transmission and also has redundant fiber paths for network protection.

The upgrade also improves Net2EZ’s network management capabilities that enable it to identify and resolve issues remotely. The redundancy built into the infrastructure enables Net2EZ to keep the network running while performing maintenance.

"We have redundant fiber between our buildings and with the Transmode solution we were able to get better diagnostics and increased performance,” said Daniel Faubel, director of network engineering at Net2EZ. “We can now tell if we are having problems without actually having to unplug the fiber, and run a fiber tester to figure it out and can access our Virginia network remotely from Los Angeles."
