Interconnects the US and 20 countries in Pan-Caribbean Americas region
Barbados-based wholesale service provider Columbus Networks has increased its network capacity by deploying T1600 core routers from Juniper Networks.
Columbus Networks has deployed the T1600 at the heart of its various subsea networks including ARCOS, CFX-1, ECLink, which combined interconnect the US and 20 countries in Pan-Caribbean Americas region. Juniper has said that with the new T1600s, Columbus has increased the capacity of its core network by a factor of three.
According to Juniper, the T1600 multi-terabit core router enables service providers to increase network capacity in line with escalating service demands without adding incremental systems to the network. As a single-chassis core router, the T1600 enables service providers to monetize their networks by speeding new service deployment and maximizing existing T-series investments.
Opher Kahane, senior vice president and general manager for high-end systems business unit at Juniper Networks, said: Columbus Networks serves an area that is experiencing some of the world’s most rapid growth in terms broadband traffic and penetration, which is increasing the demand for its network to deliver scalability, performance and efficiency. The T1600 gives them the scalability they require today, and because it’s architected for multi-chassis support, ensures Columbus can continue to scale to meet future demands, nabling them to extract maximum value from their network assets.
