BTI Systems, provider of cloud and metro networking software and systems to content, collocation and service providers around the world has announced that Pacnet, provider of integrated technology solutions in the Asia-Pacific region, is deploying the BTI 7800 Series Intelligent Cloud Connect platforms to interconnect Pacnet’s business-driven data centers in Hong Kong and Tokyo.
Pacnet delivers high-performance technology solutions over its region’s most extensive high-capacity submarine cable. Pacnet’s ability to capitalize on BTI’s compact, extensible and scalable metro portfolio to provide 100GE and 10GE support for major cloud service providers and colocation sites played a key role in earning BTI the win in this strategically critical opportunity.

“The global explosion of cloud computing, Ethernet business services, video streaming, social media and other bandwidth-intensive applications is fueling skyrocketing growth in inter-data center traffic,” said BTI Vice President of Business Development for Asia Marc Olivier.
