Colt décroche le prix Light Reading pour sa plateforme d’interconnexion Ethernet de services multiples

La plateforme d’interconnexion Ethernet de services multiples de Colt (dite MSP modulaire) a été récompensée par le Leading Lights Awards dans le cadre de l’événement Big Telecom Event qui s’est tenu récemment à Chicago (Etats-Unis). Le prix du « Service Ethernet le plus innovant » a été décerné à Colt. La remise des prix est organisée par la revue internationale de télécommunications Light Reading et récompense les services et les technologies de communication de nouvelle génération qui sont à l’origine des innovations de ce secteur.

La plateforme d’interconnexion Ethernet entièrement modulaire et indépendante des fournisseurs de Colt permet de rapidement trouver les services de données sur des réseaux multifournisseurs. Cette plateforme est conçue pour répondre aux besoins de connectivité sophistiquée des opérateurs et des grandes entreprises ayant besoin de relier leurs centres de données et leurs sièges aux centaines ou milliers de sites répartis en Europe et dans le monde.

« Nous sommes heureux que notre engagement pour la fourniture de services de grande qualité soit reconnu par nos pairs, » souligne François Eloy, EVP Network Services de Colt. « Dans le contexte actuel de l’économie numérique, nos clients nous font confiance pour des services IT et des solutions de communication sensibles. La plateforme modulaire MSP de Colt est la première solution dans ce secteur qui nous permet de répondre rapidement aux besoins actuels et futurs de connexion. Ces besoins sont en pleine évolution. »

Une des principales fonctionnalités de cette plateforme réside dans sa capacité à fournir des services Ethernet et IP sur une infrastructure commune tout en étant dotée de fonctions permettant à l’abonné l’accès à Internet et au réseau privé virtuel. Grâce au réseau hybride, les clients peuvent basculer facilement et rapidement d’un service à un autre. Autre avantage, la réduction du nombre de différents types d’équipements sur place entraîne également la réduction des besoins en matière de configuration et de maintenance.

La plateforme MSP modulaire repose sur un logiciel réseau spécifique et sur l’automatisation du noyau offrant aux opérateurs et aux entreprises la souplesse et la flexibilité nécessaires à l’augmentation de leur capacité. Compte tenu de l’évolution de leurs demandes, les entreprises peuvent renforcer leur capacité ou commander rapidement et facilement de nouveaux services susceptibles de satisfaire au mieux leurs besoins grâce à un portail en libre-service disposant d’un contrôleur de réseau basé sur un logiciel. Les partenaires ayant participé au développement de cette solution sont CyanAccedianJuniper Networks et Alcatel Lucent.

« Selon nous, l’avenir des services d’interconnexion Ethernet et de services IP bénéficiera largement des fonctionnalités des logiciels réseau et de virtualisation des fonctions réseau (NFV) » explique Luke Broome, CTO chez Colt. « En tant que pionniers dans le développement de ces solutions, nous pouvons fournir plus rapidement des services innovants à nos clients. La plateforme modulaire MSP constitue un tournant dans la fourniture de services Ethernet et Internet tout en reflétant notre position de leader sur ce segment du marché. »

La plateforme MSP modulaire de Colt est actuellement disponible dans onze villes européennes (Londres, Francfort, Berlin, Düsseldorf, Hambourg, Munich, Paris, Barcelone, Madrid, Amsterdam et Bruxelles). Colt envisage d’étendre cette plateforme à l’ensemble des villes européennes où elle est présente.

Le « Leading Lights award » constitue l’une des toutes dernières récompenses que Colt reçoit pour sa gamme de services Ethernet. En mai dernier, la plateforme modulaire MSP a été récompensée lors du Global Telecoms Business et duNetwork Virtualisation Industry pour ses solutions innovantes qui ont été proposées pour répondre aux défis commerciaux des opérateurs. Récemment, Colt s’est également vu attribué la note de 5/5 par le « Gartner’s Critical Capabilities Report » pour ses services réseau paneuropéens. La fin de l’année 2013 a vu Colt recevoir trois prix, lors du MEF Carrier Ethernet Awards, pour l’innovation permanente de sa gamme de services Ethernet.
