M2 EQUITYBITES-April 2, 2019-Fujitsu delivers enhanced capacity in platform for Midwest Fiber Network

(C)2019 M2 COMMUNICATIONS http://www.m2.com

Fujitsu Network Communications, Inc. has announced that the Midwest Fiber Network has successfully upgraded an existing fiber transport network with a 200 GbE system based on the Fujitsu 1FINITY S100 Layer 2 Switch and Virtuora Network Control Solution, the company said.

This high-capacity Carrier Ethernet network delivers a substantial boost in bandwidth for MFN member companies and their customers, with a flexible evolution path to meet future capacity needs as well.

As broadband consumption continues to escalate across the US, even small rural markets are demanding faster Internet speeds and greater capacity. The nine telecom carriers that make up the collaborative Midwest Fiber Network (MFN) deliver voice, video and data services to residential and business subscribers throughout southwestern Iowa, in addition to providing mobile backhaul services.

MFN operates a shared transport architecture that spans several hundred miles of fiber network.

In order to scale capacity as quickly and efficiently as possible, MFN opted to overlay the existing network with a disaggregated 200 Gbps architecture based on the Fujitsu 1FINITY S100 modular platform with up to 1.2 Tbps bidirectional packet switching capacity.

Paired with the Virtuora network controller and packet control application, the 1FINITY platform enables a programmable, software-defined network infrastructure that offers future-proof capacity with a low total cost of ownership, allowing the MFN member companies to take advantage of emerging business opportunities.

Fujitsu is the Japanese information and communication technology (ICT) company, offering a full range of technology products, solutions, and services. For more information, see www.fujitsu.com.
