A real challenge was the fact that there was only one fibre on each of the two routes connecting the centres, while the amount of traffic to be generated was immense. But we did it!
We remodelled the client’s network in our optical networks laboratory to test the solution we had designed and having checked that everything worked smoothly we started the implementation.
The network we have built enables the client to send 24x10 Gigabit Ethernet, 24x16G Fibre channel and 16x1 Gigabit Ethernet while the delays between his devices are smaller than 1ms, which is crucial for synchronous replications.
The client received what he had expected within rigid budget and time boundaries.
