IXEurope wants to grab outsourced data centre deals with continental service providers. High performance networking is critical, so the company went with Extreme.

Extreme Networks’ reputation as a leading provider of high-performance, broadband networking solutions has been enhanced with one of the biggest networked data centre provider deals in Europe.

IXEurope’s IXDataCenters provide dedicated broadband access to secure and reliable hosting facilities for telecos, ISPs, e-businesses and corporate enterprises throughout Europe.

Extreme Networks has been contracted to provide high bandwidth Ethernet switching solutions to maximise server availability within the data centre and provide intelligent bandwidth prioritisation features for tiered network services.

“This latest deal with Extreme Networks is another example of our commitment to customers, and supports our objective to provide high quality, neutral co-location combined with a wide ranging service portfolio,” said Guy Willner, CEO for IXEurope.

“By also choosing best of breed solutions, such as those from Extreme Networks, we can provide our customers with industry-leading value-added services, allowing them to concentrate on their core business.”

IXEurope’s network is powered with Extreme Networks’ BlackDiamond and Summit switching solutions, offering wire-speed layer 3 functionality to support 10Mbps to 10Gbps interfaces.

These solutions offer a common software platform to simplify the management of multiple switches and provide a high-density architecture to meet the heavy traffic demands of the Internet data center.

“We promote ‘Ethernet Everywhere’ within networks to enable a scalable switching platform with advanced functions for bandwidth provisioning and global server load balancing,” said George Prodan, vice president of worldwide marketing for Extreme Networks.

“The broad package of network services offered by IXEurope is symbolic of the significant shift from simple LAN connectivity to advanced services with high bandwidth, requiring this intelligent infrastructure.”
