Carrier Ethernet Multi-Service Platform von Colt durch Light Reading als „Most Innovative Ethernet Service” ausgezeichnet

Die Carrier Ethernet Multi-Service Platform (Modular MSP) von Colt wurde im Rahmen des Big Telecom Event in Chicago mit dem Leading Lights Award als „Most Innovative Ethernet Service” ausgezeichnet. Der internationale Telekommunikations-Publisher Light Reading vergib t den Preis für Kommunikationstechnologien und –dienste der nächsten Generation, , die Innovationen in der Branche fördern.

Die vollständig modulare, offene und herstellerübergreifende Carrier Ethernet Plattform von Colt ermöglicht die schnelle Verfügbarkeit von Datendiensten über Multi-Vendor-Netzwerke. Sie wurde entwickelt, um den komplexen Konnektivitätsanforderungen der Carrier und großen Unternehmen gerecht zu werden, die ihre Rechenzentren und Unternehmenszentralen mit mehreren Hundert Standorten in ganz Europa und in allen Teilen der Welt verbinden müssen.

Francois Eloy, EVP Network Services bei Colt, erklärt: „Wir freun uns sehr, dass unser Streben nach Service-Exzellenz in der Branche eine derart hohe Anerkennung findet. In der heutigen digitalen Wirtschaft erwarten unsere Kunden von uns bei geschäftskritischen IT-Diensten und Kommunikationslösungen ein hohes Maß an Verlässlichkeit. Die Modular MSP von Colt ist die branchenweit erste Lösung, die den steigenden Konnektivitätsanforderungen von Unternehmen sowohl heute als auch in den kommenden Jahren sehr schnell gerecht werden kann.”

Eine wichtige Funktion der Plattform ist die Integration der Ethernet- und IP-Servicebereitstellung im Rahmen einer gemeinsamen Netzwerkinfrastruktur. Dies gilt auch für die virtuellen CPE-Fähigkeiten für Internet Access und IPVPN Serviceleistungen. Durch die Bereitstellung von Hybrid-Netztechnologie sind die Kunden in der Lage, sehr schnell und bequem von einem Dienst zum nächsten wechseln zu können. Ein weiterer Vorteil ist die Reduzierung der Anzahl unterschiedlicher Arten von Geräten vor Ort. Auf diese Weise werden die Konfigurations- und Wartungsanforderungen minimiert.

Die Modular MSP verfügt über Software Defined Networking (SDN) und Automatisierung in ihrem Kern. Dies trägt zur Verbesserung der Flexibilität und Agilität von Carriern und Unternehmen bei der Skalierung der Kapazität bei. Da sich die Nachfrage stetig ändern wird, sind Unternehmen somit in der Lage, ihre Kapazitäten zu erweitern oder neue Dienste in Auftrag zu geben, die sich mithilfe eines softwaredefinierten netzwerkfähigen Controllers über ein Self-Service-Portal schnell und bequem an ihr Anforderungsprofil anpassen lassen. Zu den Partnern, die zur Entwicklung dieser Lösung beigetragen haben, gehören CyanAccedianJuniper Networks und Alcatel Lucent.

Luke Broome, CTO bei Colt, erklärt: „Wir glauben, dass die Zukunft von Carrier Ethernet und IP-Diensten in hohem Maße von SDN und der Virtualisierung von Netzwerkfunktionen (Network Functions Virtualisation, NFV) profitieren wird. Als Vorreiter bei diesen Entwicklungen sind wir nun in der Lage, unseren Kunden innovative Serviceleistungen noch schneller zur Verfügung zu stellen. Die Modulare MSP markiert einen Entwicklungssprung bei der Bereitstellung von Ethernet- und IP-Diensten und unterstreicht die Führungsrolle von Colt in diesem Marktsegment.”

Colt Modular MSP steht gegenwärtig in 11 europäischen Städten zur Verfügung – London, Frankfurt, Berlin, Düsseldorf, Hamburg, München, Paris, Barcelona, Madrid, Amsterdam und Brüssel. Colt beabsichtigt, die Verfügbarkeit der Plattform auf alle europäischen Städte auszudehnen, in denen das Unternehmen tätig ist.

Der Leading Lights Award ist die jüngste Auszeichnung in einer Reihe von Ehrungen, die Colt für sein Ethernet-Serviceportfolio erhalten hat. Im Mai wurde die Modular MSP im Rahmen der Global Telecoms Business und derNetwork Virtualisation Industry Awards geehrt für die Bewältigung der Herausforderungen der Carrier auf innovative Weise. Darüber hinaus erhielt Colt im Rahmen des „Critical Capabilities Report for Pan-European Network Services" von Gartner die Höchstpunktzahl (fünf von fünf Punkten). Ende 2013 erhielt das Unternehmen im Rahmen der MEF Carrier Ethernet Awards drei Auszeichnungen für seine fortgesetzten Innovationen zur Weiterentwicklung des Ethernet Serviceportfolios.
