Technology service providers Nokia (News - Alert) and Infradata recently announced the release of a new IP/optical solution to connect to NorthC Data centers across the Netherlands.

According to official sources, the solution acts as a “virtual data center” that connects 10 separate NorthC data centers across the country, allowing customers to experience improved connectivity and improved reliability through NorthC’s Region Connect Ring.

"Nokia and its partner Infradata have enabled us to implement the best solution for our Region Connect Ring.” commented Mario Hangjas, Senior Director Information Technology for NorthC “The digital transformation of the Netherlands economy and the growing role of regions within it means there is a growing demand for local data centers and for high speed, reliable connectivity between regions. The Region Connect Ring allows customers to directly access network and cloud services that are not available in their own region."

The solution utilizes a number of highly advanced hardware elements, including 7750 Service Routers with high capacity 1830 Photonic Service Switches and network automation.

"Data center providers increasingly need the highest capacity and reliability combined with the lowest latency for their interconnect networks to provide the most responsive cloud services for their customers.” added Mark Vanderhaegen, Director of Webscale Accounts at Nokia.  “Nokia's IP/optical data center interconnection and automation capabilities, together with Infradata's support services, will enable NorthC to quickly deliver the cloud connectivity its customers need to enable the digital transformation of their businesses."
