Fibrenoire deploys Cisco Carrier Ethernet System

Minimises the time and technical resources required to test and validate network performance

By CBR Staff Writer

Internet and private network services provider for optical fibre network Fibrenoire has deployed an end-to-end Cisco Carrier Ethernet System covering the Quebec City, Montreal and Toronto regions.

With Cisco Carrier Ethernet System, service providers transform the way of operating by providing a massive scale, end-to-end packet optical architecture and flexible 1G to 10G service delivery and the Cisco Carrier Ethernet System is also pre-tested to minimise the time and technical resources required to test and validate network performance.

Cisco Internet Protocol Next-Generation Network (IP NGN) architecture is built for next-generation Internet and IP/MPLS services and the Cisco Carrier Ethernet System allows for a consistent end-to-end delivery of services, while being fully interoperable and aligned with Fibrenoire’s architecture.

Fibrenoire’s network is based on Cisco ASR 9000 Series Aggregation Services Routers and the Cisco ASR 9000 Series is built for next-generation Internet scale to 100GE and will allow Fibrenoire to deliver innovative IP-based services.

Fibrenoire recieves Cisco ME 3600X Series Ethernet Access Switches and the ME 3600X Series extends 10G MPLS services to the edge of the network, while allowing an exclusive MPLS VPN differentiated service.

Cisco’s Technical Assistant Center (TAC) services are a major component of the comprehensive service quality offered by Fibrenoire.

Fibrenoire owner and CTO Jean-François Lévesque said Cisco is committed to Fibrenoire’s success.

"The Cisco team is always available to listen and explore our current and future needs. For Fibrenoire, having Cisco’s commitment and being able to talk directly to product experts is critical," said Lévesque.

Cisco Canada Service Provider Operations vice-president Mark Kummer said Fibrenoire has made a significant investment in future-proofing its network for growing customer needs.

"Cisco is delighted to collaborate with Fibrenoire and help it manage the surge in bandwidth demands on its next-generation network," said Kummer.
