OTTAWA and BOSTON, November 10, 2014
BTI Systems, an award-winning provider of cloud and metro networking software and systems to content and service providers around the world, today announced that global data center provider CyrusOne (:CONE, news) is now deploying BTI’s Cloud Networking and Data Center Interconnect Solutions in major metro markets. Representing the latest in a series of strategic customer acquisitions, BTI earned the win based on its ability to provide CyrusOne with field-proven and purpose-built software, platforms and services that enable it to rapidly scale 10G and 100G connectivity with best-in-class flexibility, density and power efficiencies.
CyrusOne provides more than two dozen mission-critical data center facilities globally that protect and ensure the continued operation of information technology infrastructure for over 625 customers. These include more than 130 of the Fortune 1000 companies and 9 of the Fortune 20, or private or foreign enterprises of equivalent size.
“We design, build and operate facilities across the United States, Europe and Asia that give customers the flexibility and scale to perfectly match their specific growth needs,” said CyrusOne Vice President and General Manager, Interconnection, Josh Snowhorn. “We needed to partner with a company that not only had the highest performing data center and cloud connectivity solutions available and shipping today, but also provided a clear roadmap focused on the needs of Data Center providers like CyrusOne, to future-proof our network moving forward. BTI Systems’ solutions for metro cloud networking provide the power-density infrastructure and software automation we require to ensure we deliver our customers with the highest performance and availability now and in the coming months and years.”
CyrusOne has deployed the BTI 7800 Series Intelligent Cloud Connect platform, the BTI 7000 Series Packet Optical platform with ROADM and the BTI proNX Service Manager with more projects ongoing. Designed to increase bandwidth and support CyrusOne’s network growth, BTI’s platforms are connecting CyrusOne data centers in Lombard, IL to the main downtown Chicago telecommunications hub. Additionally, CyrusOne is capitalizing on BTI’s solutions to expand its market reach by connecting a new data center facility in the Northern Virginia metro market to the CyrusOne national network footprint.
“CyrusOne understands the value of cultivating long-term strategic relationships with their customers and providing them with industry-leading solutions for their data center facilities and IT infrastructure challenges,” said BTI’s Senior Vice President, Americas Sales, Pete Dale. “We approach our customer relationships the same way. We worked closely with CyrusOne to optimize our software-driven network infrastructure solutions to meet their requirements for increased bandwidth, simplicity of operation, and a clear growth path to support new facilities, services and applications in the future. CyrusOne is one of the most trusted colocation data center providers worldwide and we’re pleased to earn their business, confidence and trust.”
The SDN-enabled BTI 7800 Series Intelligent Cloud Connect is purpose-built to integrate high-capacity optical switching and MPLS Label Switch Routing (LSR) with Network Functions Virtualization (NFV)-based applications to achieve massive optical performance, rapid services innovation and compelling economics for cloud and data center connectivity applications. The BTI 7800 Series empowers CyrusOne to dramatically increase cloud network performance and scale, radically improve operational efficiency and control, and accelerate deployment of new services.
The BTI 7000 Series is the most compact, modular and easy-to-use packet optical networking system available, unifying packet and optical service delivery into one platform for network-layer consolidation and improved efficiencies. The BTI 7000 Series integrates Ethernet switching, 10G WDM optical layer and Dynamic Optical Layer ROADM-on-a-blade support to simplify network deployment and operations.
