JPNAP Launches 400GbE Port Service


JPNAP Launches 400 GbE Port Service

On August 1, 2022, INTERNET MULTIFEED CO. (Mulitfeed) will launch 400 GbE port service on JPNAP, which is one of the largest Internet exchanges (IX) in the Asia Pacific region. JPNAP will be the first IX in this region to deploy 400 GbE interface*1.

As Internet traffic continues to increase, some JPNAP customers need higher bandwidth interfaces because they have to bundle many 100 GbE ports to exchange their traffic.

Multifeed conducted interoperability tests of multi-vendor 400 GbE equipment with major service providers in Japan. These tests confirm that 400 GbE is commercially viable in terms of interoperability and performance for IX*2.

With the launch of 400 GbE port services, these service providers can reduce the operational burden of bundling multiple ports and improve service quality and cost efficiency. Accordingly, JPNAP will be able to support a more comfortable communication for many end users of the Internet.
