The Connection between Campus Nord and Equinix Itconic, upgraded to 20 Gbps

23-05-2018

The connection between Campus Nord and Equinix Itconic at CATNIX has been upgraded from 10 Gbps to 20 Gbps. From now on, the interconnection between the two nodes consists of two links of 10 Gbps each, through different optical equipment. This modification guarantees a higher degree of redundancy. In case of an incident in one of the links, the other will continue being operational.

During the intervention, the former 2 Gbps backup link between Campus Nord and Equinix Itconic has been removed. Thanks to the two fiber routes between both nodes, this backup link is no longer necessary.
