P&TLuxembourg has established a 100Gbps IP connection between Frankfurt and Luxembourg with the help of equipment giant Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE:ALU, news, filings), giving them a huge low latency pipe into the key bandwidth market and financial center. The buildout lets Alcatel-Lucent answer yesterday's 100G challenge from Infinera with a product that is already in the market as opposed to one that is still a few quarters away.
With its central location between the major markets of Frankfurt, Paris, Amsterdam, and Brussels, the tiny country of Luxembourg seems to get little attention when it comes to data. Lately they have been trying to change that, hoping to establish themselves as a locus for IP peering and perhaps a more substantial slice of the low latency financial business.
The solution leverages both the 1830 PSS with coherent 100G and the 7750 SR for a 100GE interface.
