Augsburg, July 10, 2018 – Rosenberger Optical Solutions & Infrastructure (Rosenberger OSI), manufacturer of innovative fiber-optic cabling infrastructure in Europe, announces that an extensive cabling project in Italy has been successfully completed. Rosenberger OSI was chosen as the partner best suited for the new cabling infrastructure for the Milan Internet Exchange (MIX) and was able to achieve some fundamental goals for the company within a very short time by implementing the company's internal solutions: Decreased interconnection complexity, increased scalability, contained costs and improved quality.
The Milan Internet Exchange is the largest Internet exchange in Italy and one of Europe’s leaders in terms of data traffic carried. Formed in 2000, MIX now has 19 of the leading Italian internet companies among its members. MIX is the interconnection point where internet operators (ISPs, carriers, content and hosting providers) connect for efficient IP data traffic exchange.
High reliability and redundancy
MIX has the technology required to ensure the highest levels of network and service reliability and availability. By hosting operator devices at its data centers, MIX guarantees security and redundancy. A structure with this scope must maintain the highest quality and cutting-edge technology in every device used, and must have the most reliable providers in terms of installation speed, maintenance and service.
High quality fiber optic solutions and copper cables
In the first months of 2017, MIX chose Rosenberger OSI as the partner best suited to filling its need to set up and maintain a homogeneous, high performing system. The technical solution employed featured the adoption of SMAP-G2 HD plate distribution panels, single mode fiber trunk cables with MTP® - MTP® connectors and trunk cables with LC - LC connectors. CAT7 pre-assembled copper cable trunks with CAT6A shielded jacks were also used.
