Prenesh Padayachee, Internet Solutions Chief Technology Officer

Internet Solutions (IS), a pan-African telecommunications provider has today, 2 April 2014, announced the deployment of the Infinera DTN-X platform across the company’s South African long distance fibre network.

This is the first deployment of its kind for South Africa and the African continent and will deliver businesses with the simplicity, scalability, and efficiency that it requires from a fibre network.

As a result, Internet Solutions is now able to react to changing business demands and requirements, as well as provision bandwidth capacities, much faster than ever before.

“With this deployment of Infinera’s DTN-X platform, Internet Solutions is able to light up high-bandwidth capacity on our 2000km fibre network,” says Prenesh Padayachee, Chief Technology Officer at Internet Solutions.

“This also allows us end-to-end control over our fibre deployments which ultimately gives us full control over every aspect of our fibre networks,” adds Padayachee.

Businesses will also benefit from the capacity boost that is inherent within Infinera’s 500 gigabit per second (Gb/s) FlexCoherent super-channels platform – this includes the management of redundancy that is critical for uninterrupted connectivity services. Utilising some of the more advanced features on the DTN-X platform, Internet Solutions is now also able to provision protected circuits to clients at the telco infrastructure layer. These protected circuits provide additional connectivity protection and security, and it allows Internet Solutions to provision back-up fibre routes to clients directly.

With the deployment of the Infinera DTN-X platform, Internet Solutions has a total capacity of 8 Tb/s (terabits per second) on its fibre backbone. “We believe that South Africa’s bandwidth requirements will triple in the next year and the demand for bandwidth intensive applications and services will increase beyond anything that we have seen to date,” says Padayachee.

“With this technology, we will be able to deploy additional bandwidth intensive services such as content distribution services and replication services for disaster recovery, without cost constraints, and which are critical for businesses wanting to ensure that no data is lost across its servers or network.”

As the SDN (Software Defined Networks) era advances, Internet Solutions will also be looking to provide both clients and the wholesale market with the ability to create and control their own virtual network without actually owning any part of the Layer 1 infrastructure. This is a possibility with the Infinera Intelligent Transport Network solution.

“For Internet Solutions, this deployment of Infinera’s cutting-edge network technology will enable us to differentiate ourselves and our services from other ICT providers. This is particularly important as we scale our network to meet the growing industry demand,” adds Padayachee.
