This morning at 5:00 a.m. we activated our new Brocade BigIron RX-8 Switch at e-shelter facility Berlin. Not only, that now have eight 10Gbit/s Ports installed in this location, we also activated our first DWDM system. We’re currently using a 8 channel DWDM system and started with two channels. That means that we now have a 20Gbit/s connection from e-shelter facility to I/P/B/ Carrier-Colo which can easily scaled up to 80Gbit/s without service interruption. Thanks to Steffen David (BCIX) and Mario Apitz (The unbelievable Machine Company) for support.
