Pluribus Networks, a prominent leader in next-gen software-defined networking (SDN) and open networking, recently made an announcement that the Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX), a high-quality interconnection service provider for businesses, as part of a multi-site network modernization project has now deployed Pluribus’ Netvisor® ONE operating system and Adaptive Cloud Fabric™ (ACF). AMS-XI has remained forefront for more than 25 years in the interconnection market by delivering stable, fast, and cost-effective premium interconnection services. AMS-IX now operates in seven independent internet exchanges around the world, and the largest exchange is located in Amsterdam, consisting of 1150+ ports, 14 points of presence (POPs), and 870+ autonomous systems (ASNs).
In order to meet their rising demands, AMS-IX decided to move to open networking solutions along with SDN to meet their requirements for automation, performance, flexibility, and cost-efficiency. The company chose a Linux-based network operating system that features ACF, which runs on Dell EMC Open Networking Solution to create a controlled network fabric by SDN to compile the widely distributed switches. This move will help in creating one logical switch, and this radically simplifies the network operations. The benefits of open networking stretch beyond simple cost benefits, and it is significantly about the programmability and automation that the open networking brings.
