LINX deploy multi-100Gig DWDM over 57km using HUBER+SUHNER Cube Optics

LINX LogoThe London Internet Exchange (LINX) recently expanded their metro optical network by deploying a simple 100Gig DWDM based solution from HUBER+SUHNER Cube Optics AG.

LINX were seeing increased need for more and more low latency and high bandwidth between their data centers around London. LINX were also keen to utilise the switch/router vendors’ native 100G ports, if possible, whilst also aiming to keep the transport portion of the network as simple as possible. Although there were many options from large DWDM vendors, the investment costs there were just too high.
