Written by Mark Evans

Cisco and Colt Technology Services have announced that they have successfully achieved a milestone in upgrading Colt's pan-European, US and Asian packet network, laying the foundations further differentiated, high-bandwidth connectivity solutions.

Since 2016 the companies have been working on a system-wide, multiple 100Gbps upgrade to Colt's IQ Network for better connectivity for cloud-scale, business-critical applications to its enterprise, carrier and web-centric customers. By combining segment routing and Ethernet VPN (EVPN), Colt's IQ Network now benefits from faster convergence time, increased network availability and resiliency for any topology, while enabling the service provider to deliver high-bandwidth solutions much faster.
