German fixed network operator QSC is expanding its core backbone with a view to transforming it into ‘one of Germany’s most modern and high-performance core networks’ by the end of the year. To this end, new core router infrastructure with redundant backups will be linked up in a new ring design covering eight locations nationwide. Alongside this, interconnection capacities will be extended to 100Gbps.
‘All of QSC’s customers and business partners stand to benefit in equal measure from the new backbone architecture’, commented Felix Hoeger, COO and Director of Technology and Operations at QSC, adding: ‘This expansion will increase the performance capacity of our core backbone several times over. It will enable even very bandwidth-intensive services to be transported highly securely and at the utmost speed. It will optimise access to cloud-based systems as well as real-time services, such as IP telephony, thus enabling our customers to put their connection bandwidths to the best possible use.’
