Converge ICT ‘commissions’ high capacity backbone to improve connectivity

Converge ICT (Converge), a pure fiber data network and internet service provider, has commissioned what it calls “an innovative and flexible high-capacity backbone” to give Filipino consumers and enterprises a powerful connection.

The new 400G metro backbone utilizes industry-leading optical solutions from US-based networking systems, services, and software companies, paving the way to support current and future requirements from a range of applications.

“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 Dennis Anthony Uy, founder and CEO, Converge ICT.

As demand for bandwidth increases, the 400G optical solution allows Converge ICT to be flexible and efficiently improve the capacity of its nationwide backbone with the hopes of delivering 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 the main path to only one protection path. This deployment gives Converge ICT a programmable, dynamic set up of connections that increase adaptability and resiliency, with the ability to prepare for easily scaling to higher capacity 800G wavelengths to support future growth.
