Megaport is aiming to become a leading provider of network interconnection services across the Asia-Pacific region by leveraging the power of Brocade MLXe Core Routers. The platform, implemented for Megaport by Brocade partner ASI Solutions, features the first delivery of 100 Gbps network services in the region from Brocade. The solution is based on Brocade 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) cards, which provide routing capacity along with cost-effective support.
Bevan Slattery, Chief Executive Officer, Megaport, said,We want to revolutionize the way communications networks connect. Megaport’s offering is based on a massive interconnection fabric designed to allow providers to use a single physical Ethernet interface to seamlessly connect with other parties. We aim to make a significant positive impact towards the operating costs borne by network operators, content hosts and cloud service providers.
Since its launch in July 2013, Megaport, which currently extends to 18 major data centers in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, has connected over 700 Gbps in bandwidth as customers embrace its groundbreaking solutions.
Greig Guy, Country Manager Australia and New Zealand, Brocade, stated, With Megaport publicly stating it is using 100 GbE in its core and providing 100 GbE ports in a very flexible and cost-effective manner, we believe there will be plenty of organizations that will now be influenced to make the leap as well.
Megaport’s strategy is to drive a step-change in the network interconnection industry by rolling out 100 GbE network technologies across Australia before expanding to other locations throughout the Asia-Pacific region, according to Slattery.
