Next-Gen Integrated Services Delivery Platform Enables KIRZ to Streamline Data Center Operations, Drives Delivery of High-Value Co-Location Services and Access to Enterprises
OTTAWA and BOSTON – March 22, 2012
BTI Systems, the global leader redefining service delivery for metro network operators, today announced that King International Resource Zone (KIRZ) has selected its advanced Data Center Interconnect Solution to provide high-capacity, multiprotocol connectivity between KIRZ’s newly launched and existing data centers – enabling the rapidly growing, Thailand-based IT and solution provider to offer cost-effective co-location services and access to its customers.
Founded in 1995, KIRZ is the commercial ISP in Thailand offering innovative IP-based infrastructure solutions to enterprises. Specializing in the hospitality sector, the full-service ISP’s end-to-end connectivity solutions include network integration, corporate bandwidth and managed services.
Supporting the launch of a data center at the Queen Sirikit Convention Center in Bangkok, KIRZ sought to streamline metro network operations between this new and an existing data center. Additionally, the service provider wanted to provide high-capacity, low-cost, multiprotocol connectivity between both data center locations, and deliver co-located applications and services more efficiently and effectively to customers.
After evaluating other products, KIRZ selected BTI’s 7000 Series, the foundation of its Data Center Interconnect Solution. Architected to simplify and consolidate network layers, the BTI 7000 Series integrates Carrier Ethernet and multiprotocol optical service delivery, Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) and photonic layer building blocks for an integrated, easy-to-use platform that interoperates with legacy SONET and SDH. Combining all of this functionality into a compact, high-density, energy-efficient solution, the BTI 7060 enables KIRZ to maximize its existing fiber infrastructure, scale network capacity on-demand, and simplify data center connectivity and operations while providing enhanced services to customers.
“BTI offers the space-efficient, scalable, high-capacity solution that KIRZ wanted in order to streamline operations, and deliver compelling, economical services to meet the current and future demands of partners and customers,” said Gun Kirdkao, CEO of KIRZ. “With its metro services delivery platform, BTI provides the optimal foundation for enhancing our portfolio of best-in-class services, helping us to build from a position of strength, and profitably expand our business in a highly competitive marketplace.”
“With its small footprint and modular design, our flagship packet optical networking platform enables customers to dynamically increase network capacity and rapidly provision high-bandwidth services,” said Marc Olivier, Vice President of Business Development, Asia Pacific at BTI Systems. “Purpose-built for pay-as-you-grow deployments, the 7000 Series gives organizations the connectivity and scalability they need to meet current services demands, and anticipate and flexibly prepare for future business growth.”
“New customers in Vietnam, Cambodia and now Thailand further underscore BTI’s commitment to offering highly competitive, compelling solutions for an ever-expanding customer base in APAC – and beyond,” said Fahim Sheikh, Vice President of Sales, Asia Pacific at BTI Systems.
The BTI 7000 Series offers massively scalable, carrier-grade networking for simple deployment across mobile backhaul, Ethernet business services and broadband residential applications. Providing tremendous densities and capacity in compact, modular platforms, the BTI 7000 Series conserves precious rack space while facilitating service-oriented connectivity across metro service networks. The foundation of BTI’s network solutions, the BTI 7000 Series supports the entire portfolio of client service modules and photonic layer building blocks.
