i4Networks Opens Network PoP at Greenhouse Datacenters in the Netherlands
By: Greenhouse Datacenters
Greenhouse's two data centers are located at an industrial park in Naaldwijk, the Netherlands, in the Westland area amidst the many greenhouses for the worldwide export of flowers, plants and vegetables - for which this area is well-known. When fully utilized, these data centers have a capacity of 5MW, while the total colocation floor area covers 4,500 square meters.
Greenhouse's colocation data centers are operated as carrier-neutral facilities. Users have access to various telecom carriers as well as Internet exchanges such as the AMS-IX, NL-IX, and DE-CIX. The now installed network Point-of-Presence (PoP) by I4Networks allows companies throughout the Netherlands to get easy and low latency access to Greenhouse's data centers.
1,6 Tbit/s Network
The granular MPLS (Multi Protocol Label Switching) network of network provider i4Networks is a Layer 2 network backbone that is linked at strategic points in the Netherlands with wholesale partners such as Relined, KPN, Ziggo, and Tele2. Thanks to these links, i4Networks has access up to the front door of all zip codes in the Netherlands, including office buildings. The total bandwidth capacity of this Dutch network is 100 Gbit/s, while the network is scalable to 1.6 Tbit/s. I4Networks uses Coherent laser technology to light up the fiber optics to get maximum bandwidth capacity out of the network.
"Many networks in the Netherlands and internationally use DWDM technology, or Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing, which uses wavelengths or 'colors' to optimize fiber capacity," says Dirk Pol, owner of i4Networks. "We use innovative methods to make even better use of the fiber's capacity. Including these Coherent lasers, through which we're able to roll out a next generation network in the Netherlands with its huge total capacity of 1.6 Tbit/s."
