MANILA, Philippines – Converge ICT, a local fiber internet provider, has commissioned an innovative and flexible high capacity backbone to give Filipino consumers and enterprises their most powerful connection yet. The new 400G metro backbone utilizes industry-leading optical solutions from a United States-based networking systems, services, and software company, paving the way to support current and future requirements from a range of applications.
As demand for bandwidth increases, the 400G optical solution allows Converge ICT to be flexible and efficiently improve the capacity of its nationwide backbone to deliver a more seamless user experience. Leveraging ASON technology, the network is capable of automatically routing traffic to multiple available paths during fiber breaks, a feature that traditional DWDM technology cannot provide as it’s limited to switching of traffic from main path to only one protection path. This deployment gives Converge ICT a programmable, dynamic set up of connections that increases adaptability and resiliency, with the ability to prepare for easily scaling to higher capacity 800G wavelengths to support future growth.
“This network expansion gives us the confidence that we can deliver on our commitment to foster simple, fast, and reliable connectivity for both existing and potential customers,” said Converge ICT Founder and Chief Executive Officer Dennis Anthony Uy.
Converge ICT is a trailblazer in the Philippines that is forging a path toward digital transformation for its customers and foster rapid growth, meet future demands and drive new levels of efficiency and performance.
