Telecommunication company Macomnet, a Joint Venture of Moscow Metro and Andrew Corporation (USA) has delivered 64 dark fiber pairs to IXcellerate, the Russian Alliance Member of the International Data Centre Group. Construction at Phase I of IXcellerate’s Moscow 1 data centre continues to progress, following the completion of a temporary Meet-Me-Room and steel works.
Dark fibres are generally favoured for various reasons such as scalability, economics, control and flexibility. A single pair can support as much as 400Gig of lit transport capacity to accommodate future growth. With a dark fibre network, IXcellerate will have a virtually unlimited capacity with dedicated infrastructure to improve reliability and performance
