Infinera Announces Deployment of Infinera DTN-X Platform Across the South African Long Distance Network
Apr 2 14
Infinera announced the deployment of the Infinera DTN-X platform across the company's South African long distance network. The Infinera Intelligent Transport Network solution, featuring the DTN-X packet optical transport networking platform, enables Internet Solutions to differentiate its services, and manage costs as they scale their network. Using the Infinera Intelligent Transport Network solution, Internet Solutions can now offer 10, 40 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet services to its clients across the long distance fibres it manages across South Africa with short lead times, leading prices and excellent reliability. Internet Solutions' clients will benefit from its newly enhanced transport network through faster provisioning of bandwidth, as well as quicker fault resolution timeframes, as a result of Internet Solutions now having complete control of the network, end to end. This networking solution delivers the industry's only commercially available 500 gigabit per second FlexCoherent super-channels based on Infinera's widely deployed photonic integrated circuits and is a first for South Africa and the African continent. The Infinera Intelligent Transport Network solution provides Internet Solutions with a system integrating dense wavelength division multiplexing optical transmission and five terabit per second non-blocking OTN switching in a single platform. Infinera's intelligent software combined with this converged platform automates manual operations to lower operational costs and enable faster service delivery. The Infinera DTN-X is designed to scale without compromise to enable future upgrades to terabit super-channels and Terabit Ethernet.
Windstream Deploys Infinera Intelligent Transport Network
Mar 10 14
Infinera and Windstream announced that are deploying the Infinera DTN-X platform, featuring 500 Gigabit per second (Gb/s) super-channels across Windstream's long haul express network. The Infinera Intelligent Transport Network enables Windstream to differentiate their services, protect their investment and lower operational expense as they scale their network. Windstream operates a nationwide fiber and IP network, covering 118,000 miles of fiber and 27 data center locations across the nation. As a cloud solutions provider, Windstream serves businesses with a wide range of cloud communication needs, in addition to offering an advanced data, voice and video network that provides customers low latency and reliable 100 Gigabit Ethernet services. Windstream benefits from an Infinera Intelligent Transport Network featuring the industry's only commercially available single card 500 Gb/s FlexCoherent super channels based on Infinera's widely deployed photonic integrated circuits. This provides Windstream with a solution integrating DWDM optical transmission and five terabit per second non blocking OTN switching in a single platform. Infinera's intelligent software combined with this converged platform automates manual operations to lower operational costs and enable faster service delivery. The Infinera DTN-X is designed with 1 terabit per slot, enabling it to scale without compromise to single card terabit super channels and Terabit Ethernet in the future.
Infinera Introduces New Solutions for Service Providers Planning to Simplify the Operation of Multi-Layer Transport Networks Through Increased Automation
Mar 4 14
Infinera introduced new solutions for service providers planning to simplify the operation of multi-layer transport networks through increased automation. Multi-layer transport networks blend the efficiency of digital switching with the scale of optical switching to create the communication foundation of cloud-based services and the Internet. The new solution includes the industry's first super-channel FlexROADM (reconfigurable optical add drop multiplexer), the first standards based multi-layer control plane for spectrum switched optical networks (SSON) and the first 500 gigabit per second (Gb/s) flexible-grid super-channels. The combination of the Infinera DTN-X packet optical transport networking platform with these new solutions uniquely enables multi-layer automation of Intelligent Transport Networks. These new solutions for the Infinera Intelligent Transport Network make it easier for operators to automate the digital switching and the optical transport layers of their multi-terabit transport networks: Super-Channel FlexROADM for Scalable Optical Switching. Infinera's converged switching capabilities have been enhanced to feature a new, purpose-built super-channel FlexROADM. The FlexROADM is colorless, directionless and contention-less (CDC) and is available in C, CD, and CDC versions up to nine degrees. When combined with the multi-terabit OTN switching of the DTN-X platform, service providers now have a converged multi-layer solution with digital grooming of client services and optical switching of efficiently filled super-channels. Together these enable service providers to respond quickly to changing service and traffic demands while simplifying network operations. Standards Based Control Plane for Multi-Layer Transport Automation. Infinera's widely deployed standards based control plane now extends transport automation beyond super-channels to control the FlexROADM, which is compliant with the Internet Engineering Task Force's (IETF) SSON framework. For the first time, the same standards based multi-layer control plane controls the digital OTN switching for point and click service establishment as well as the switching of flexible grid super-channels at the optical layer. This combination uniquely enables service providers to automate everything in the Intelligent Transport Network. Flexible Grid Super-Channels for Efficient Long-Haul Transmission. Infinera's third generation of 500 Gb/s super-channels takes full advantage of large scale photonic integrated circuit technology and the FlexCoherent Processor to deliver the industry's first single-card long haul flexible grid super-channels. Infinera customers have deployed almost one petabit per second of Infinera's first and second generation FlexCoherent super-channels since the introduction of the DTN-X platform in 2012.
