Worldstream has chosen Nokia to enhance its interconnection infrastructure for Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) hosting services. This upgrade, from 100 Gbit/s to 400 Gbit/s port speeds with an immediate path to 800 Gbit/s, will remove scalability barriers and support further growth.

  • Summary - Modernization enables Worldstream to support services at speeds of up to 400 Gigabit Ethernet (Gbit/s) initially, with the ability to grow capacity seamlessly as it expands its data center infrastructure in the Netherlands.

Worldstream is a major player in the IaaS market with data centers covering over 5,000 square meters and 15,000 servers in operation. The company is headquartered in the Netherlands and has a global customer base that includes major financial institutions, and reputable companies in the industrial, enterprise, broadcasting, and agricultural sectors.

Worldstream will deploy Nokia's 7750 SR platforms, offering scalability, performance, security, and efficiency. Nokia’s system design innovation, combined with the industry-proven Service Router Operating System (SR OS), ensures improved network speed, flexible capability, and reliability in the 7750 SR system for deterministic scaling of capacity, along with extending the life of the deployed systems.

Danny Frazer, Network Manager at Worldstream, said : “A solid network is vitally important as Worldstream expands its cloud services portfolio and grows its data center footprint nationwide. Nokia’s proven and resilient IP router platform gives us the improved quality of service and scalability we need that will grow with our business.”

Mark Vanderhaegen, Director of Webscale Business at Nokia, said: “Worldstream needed an interconnection platform with the headroom to support the growth of its hosting and cloud services. We are delighted Nokia is a good fit for Worldstream’s strategy, and we look forward to working with them to support the needs of their member customers in the region.”
