Nokia has provided its Datacenter Interconnect(DCI) solution for Internet Thailand Public Company (INET), marking one of the first long-haul DCI solutions in the country.

Nokia's Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technology will connect INET's two datacenters in the capital city Bangkok to a site in Saraburi.

In keeping with the trend of Big Data, where major global customers are expanding their data hosting plans, INET has seen its datacenter business grow significantly over the past few years. The ICT solutions provider invested in multiple datacenter sites to support this growing demand, necessitating massive data connection requirements between sites to keep customer data secured and managed, with a better total cost of ownership (TCO).

Nokia has deployed its DCI solution in conjunction with reseller Teohong Silom, helping INET introduce multiple types of datacenter interfaces and data rates to existing and new customers, thus assuring a highly reliable network.

The solution is based on the 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) and managed by the Network Services Platform. The 1830 PSS is a high-performance Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) platform that delivers the capacity, security and control required for long-haul data center networks.

Wanchai Vach-shewadumrong, Deputy Managing Director, Internet Thailand Company
As a leading ICT solutions provider that is growing its data center business, we were faced with the challenge of connecting multiple sites spread over increasing distances. A simple dark fiber connection proved insufficient for scaling the business, therefore we evaluated several DCI solutions in the market.

Sebastien Laurent, Country Director, Nokia Thailand 
Our leading DCI technology allows INET to actively promote its DCI business both within the country and globally. Thailand is on the cusp of significant economic growth, especially as it is emerging as a major Southeast Asia hub given its strategic location.
