Nokia helps connect Xiaomi data centres with high speed fibre-optic network

The network solution will help reduce Xiaomi’s bottlenecks in data transport across its data centres.

By CBR Staff Writer

Nokia is set to help Xiaomi connect seven of its data centres in Beijing by supplying the Chinese electronics giant with a high speed fibre-optic network.

Bolstering its connectivity, Xiaomi aims to reduce bottlenecks in data transport while ensuring high speed, lower latency internet services to its customers.

For the network, Nokia will use its data center interconnect (DCI) solution, based on the company’s 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) and managed by the Network Services Platform.

According to Nokia, its 1830 Photonic Service Switch is claimed to be a high performance, Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM), which is an optical multiplexing technology that can increase bandwidth over existing fibre networks. It works by simultaneously combining and transmitting multiple signals at different wavelengths on the same fibre.

Xiaomi cloudNokia says that its DCI solution can help Xiaomi in linking all of its data centres and in effectively establishing a private cloud which can support its internal data management needs.

For this project, Nokia will leverage its experience in connecting large enterprises such as financial institutions, healthcare providers and webscale companies.

Nokia China IP and Optical Networks Business Group head Drazen Lukic said: “As large enterprises in China and around the world look to take advantage of the benefits of private cloud, Nokia’s data centre interconnect solution offers an ideal way of bringing together geographically distributed assets to form a single, high-performance cloud.

“This initiative is enabling Xiaomi to maximise network capacity, address fast-growing traffic demands and enjoy the flexibility of the cloud with the security, reliability and performance of a private network.”

Recently, the Finnish handset-maker has entered into a three year contract with Telefonica to build networks in London.
