Akado Telecom Deploys Multi-Terabit Intelligent Transport Network with Infinera Instant Bandwidth
Aug 25 14
Infinera and Akado Telecom (Akado) announced the upgrade to Akado's Moscow backbone network with the Infinera DTN-X packet optical transport networking platform featuring Infinera Instant Bandwidth. With this deployment and upgrade to 100 gigabit per second (Gb/s), Akado has increased its total fiber capacity by more than four times, enabling rapid delivery of high capacity services. The Infinera DTN-X platform enables Akado to rapidly deliver reliable, high-speed networking services. The Infinera DTN-X features the industry's only commercially available 500 Gb/s super-channel solution. When combined with Infinera's Instant Bandwidth, Akado can activate bandwidth on demand in 100 Gb/s increments to rapidly deliver services to its customers faster and with lower costs. This new system provides over eight terabits per second (Tb/s) of capacity on the Akado fiber infrastructure. To put that in perspective, eight Tb/s is more capacity than the entire Internet in 2005, and is enough bandwidth to simultaneously stream over one million high definition videos bi-directionally. Infinera's SDN-ready application programming interfaces automate network operations to reduce both operational cost and service delivery times.

XO Communications Deploys Infinera's Intelligent Transport Network for 100G Nationwide
Jul 22 14
Infinera and XO Communications (XO) announced the deployment of the Infinera DTN-X packet optical transport networking platform capable of delivering high bandwidth network services up to 100G across the XO nationwide network. The multi-terabit Infinera DTN-X platform also enables XO to support high-performance cloud, data and video applications nationally. With the Infinera DTN-X platform, XO benefits from the industry's only commercially available single-card 500 gigabit per second (Gb/s) FlexCoherent super-channel solution. These 500 Gb/s super-channels enable XO to rapidly deliver more than nine terabits per second (Tb/s) of transmission capacity on a single fiber. The high capacity super-channels are enabled by 500 Gb/s photonic integrated circuits (PICs) developed and fabricated by Infinera. PICs enable the DTN-X platform to integrate wavelength division multiplexing super-channel transmission with up to 12 Tb/s of non-blocking optical transport network switching, providing seamless scaling as traffic requirements grow in the future. The DTN-X also features an SDN-ready application programming interface that enables the automation of network operations to reduce both operational cost and service delivery times.
