RETN employs a 10 Gb Ethernet port at PLIX (Warsaw, Poland) and 2 x 10GE port at AMS-IX (Amsterdam, Netherland). The upgrade is in response to increased RETN backbone Internet traffic.
RETN has tripled its ports capacity of Juniper MX960 Edge Routers in Moscow, Stockholm and Frankfurt. Dense Port Concentrators (DPCs) were replaced with the latest model Fixed Configuration Modular Port Concentrators (MPC), having sixteen 10-Gb Ethernet ports per card. Also additional direct Router-to-Router connections Moscow – Frankfurt – Stockholm -Moscow are organised for optimal distribution of the transit IP traffic in the RETN network. The upgrade will allow to raise Internet traffic up to 1320 Gbps on each of these PoPs.
