Dailymotion, one of the leading international video hosting platforms has boosted its capacity between important data centers with 200 Gbps (Gigabits per second) fiber-optic transport equipment from Ekinops.
With more than 300 million monthly visitors watching some three billion videos, Dailymotion needed to interconnect the two Paris-area data centers with a high-capacity redundant link and also needed to upgrade that link in a short timeframe. To meet these needs, Dailymotion turned to Ekinops, a leading supplier of next-generation optical network equipment for high-speed telecommunications networks and a specialist in cost-effective and rapid deployments.
Dailymotion selected EKINOPS in late October 2016 and the new link went live in early December. EKINOPS deployed its 200G muxponders, allowing up to 8 Tbps (Terabits per second) transmission between the two locations. The new EKINOPS equipment replaced 10 Gbps equipment that simply could no longer scale to meet Dailymotion’s needs.
“To enhance the quality of service of our video platform, and to be prepared for future booming demand, we decided to drastically increase the interconnection capacity between our data centers,” said Pierre-Yves Maunier, Network Architect at Dailymotion, which is part of Vivendi, the international media and content group. “EKINOPS offered us an efficient and cost-effective 200G solution that is easy to use and extremely scalable.”
“With this advanced EKINOPS equipment, Dailymotion now has in place a very flexible and essentially future-proof network,” said Jonathan Amir, VP of EMEA sales at Ekinops. “And when it does need additional capacity, extending that capacity will be a simple process. Dailymotion is definitely ready for future surges in video demand.”
