March 15, 2006 Dallas, Texas -- To expand its network in California, Hurricane Electric, a provider of Internet backbone and co-location services, deployed Transmode's TS-1100 C/DWDM optical transport equipment. The Transmode network incorporates 10G and 2.5G WDM links carrying Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) traffic between 4 major points-of-presence (POPs).
Hurricane Electric's technical Web hosting services include dedicated servers and facility co-location. The company says it's experiencing "tremendous growth across the whole of its network" and has added ports to a number of its US POPs. The company has also expanded internationally by adding facilities in London and Amsterdam.
"We differentiate ourselves with leading technical hosting and quality of service," explains Mike Leber, president of Hurricane Electric. "Transmode's solution offers us the ability to manage our current network more efficiently and to grow our network more economically in the future, thereby enabling us to strengthen these differentiators."
Employing the company's patented Intelligent WDM (iWDM) protocol recognition and SFP/XFP pluggable optics, the Transmode TS-1100 platform incorporates the company's 7900 multi-protocol 10G transponder, 7700 multi-protocol 2.5G transponder, and 5400 2x GbE aggregator.Â
"Hurricane Electric is an important win for Transmode, against solid competition," observes Morgan Noecker, Transmode's director of North American sales. "Furthermore, this win and other as yet unannounced wins strengthen our position in North America, which is a rapidly growing market for Transmode."
