Infinera helps BroadBand Tower expand data center connectivity across Tokyo

US IP technology company Infinera has helped Japanese data center and cloud services provider BroadBand Tower deploy a modular platform to expand connectivity between its data centers across Tokyo.

Infinera’s GX Series Compact Modular Platform was used to enable BroadBand Tower to meet increasing customer demand for cloud-based services connectivity in Japan and enhance service performance in the era of 5G.

“Infinera’s GX solution has become a leading solution for data center interconnect around the world, and it continues to gain momentum as operators like BroadBand Tower look for ways to meet the increasing demands of their customers,” said Nick Walden, the Senior Vice President for Sales at Infinera.

With the growth of cloud computing in the country and digital transformation being a strategic government priority, Infinera believed delivering secure and scalable data center and cloud services in Tokyo was critical to BroadBand Tower’s customer success.

“Infinera’s GX solution is a leading optical transport solution, outperforming other solutions on the market for data center interconnect to deliver the high capacity, security, and reliability needed for data centers, making it the ideal solution for our expansion,” noted Hiroki Kabasawa, Member of the Board and Operating Officer for Cloud & Storage Engineering at BroadBand Tower.

Infinera worked closely with its local partner UNIADEX to help BroadBand Tower strive to provide the highest capacity, reliability, and network security available, as well as uninterrupted service during their transition to 5G.
