Azzurri, Sorrento Partner on Optical Networks

DENVER -- With the increase in corporate network traffic, storage area networks, consumer broadband and mobile backhaul all threatening to create network bottlenecks, Azzurri Communications one of the UK’s leading managed services companies for voice, data and mobile communications – has partnered with Sorrento Networks to deliver more high bandwidth applications and services over optical networks.

Sorrento’s metro optical access solutions are helping Azzurri clients such as Neos Networks, part of the Scottish and Southern Energy Group, to increase the capacity of their existing fiber networks. In addition, Azzurri offers a Virtual Network Operator (VNO) model that provides carrier-independent connectivity to deliver high bandwidth capacity over metro networks.

“New technologies from Web 2.0 to mobile broadband are putting further pressure on network infrastructures,” said David Macfarlane, CTO of Azzurri. “As most carriers and enterprises don’t want to invest in traditional telco assets, Sorrento’s advanced Wave Division Multiplexing (WDM) technology enables them to add capacity and flexibility to existing optical networks. We see a major opportunity in delivering turnkey solutions or VNO services to meet this growing demand for bandwidth.”
