A single virtual data center
NorthC offers its customers fast, scalable, and reliable data center interconnection and cloud connectivity with the high-speed Region Connect Ring. Furthermore, NorthC customers can improve data center connectivity speed and reliability by offering Layer 2 IP/MPLS interconnection services between its data centers to meet their bandwidth, latency, and performance needs.
Mario Hangjas, Senior Director Information Technology for NorthC, said,
“Nokia and its partner Infradata have enabled us to implement the best solution for our Region Connect Ring. The digital transformation of the Netherlands economy and the growing role of regions means there is a growing demand for local data centers and high-speed, reliable connectivity between regions. The Region Connect Ring allows customers to directly access network and cloud services that are not available in their region.”
Nokia Network Services Platform (NSP) is a software-defined network automation solution that fully manages NorthC’s customer connections and data center interconnection. Therefore, NorthC can improve response times and service delivery times only takes hours.
Mohamed El Haddouchi, Group CTO of Infradata, said,
