Agder Breiband Deploys Infinera Corporation Digital Optical Network in Norway
May 14 13
Infinera announced the expansion into the Nordic region with Agder Breiband (Agder). Agder selected the Infinera DTN and ATN platforms for the flexibility, scalability and simplicity of Infinera's Digital Optical Network solutions. Agder is deploying the Infinera DTN and ATN platforms in its regional backbone to provide high capacity transport for the voice, video and data services they deliver to their customers. The platforms share the common Infinera Management Suite (IMS) and work together seamlessly, making it simple to deploy new capacity quickly and flexibly. By deploying the DTN and ATN platforms, Agder can offer broadband services rapidly to customers. Agder's deployment of Infinera's DTN and ATN platforms provides them with a network that is easy to operate. The Infinera DTN platform, powered by 100 Gb/s photonic integrated circuits (PICs), is designed to scale up to 6.4 Tb/s of transmission capacity per fiber. The Infinera ATN, a scalable WDM transport platform with multi-service aggregation, brings the intelligence of the Infinera Digital Optical Network to the metro edge.
BICS Selects Infinera Corp.'s DTN-X for 500G Pan-European Network
May 13 13
Infinera Corporation announced the selection of the Infinera DTN-X platform to upgrade BICS' Pan-European network. The Infinera DTN-X delivers 500 Gigabit per second (Gb/s) long haul super-channels, enabling BICS to deliver flexible and cost effective 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) services. BICS offers international wholesale solutions to any communication service provider through a network of 100 points of presence in 55 cities and 33 countries across the globe. The Infinera DTN-X platform was selected to upgrade BICS' Pan-European network, stretching across 9,000 kilometers of fiber in Europe and linking through a cable landing station in Marseille into the EIG & SEA-ME-WE 4 submarine cable systems. BICS selected the Infinera DTN-X for the scalability, efficiency and simplicity the solution delivers. Infinera is the first to deliver 500Gb/s long-haul super-channels based on Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) and the FlexCoherent(TM) Processor, scaling transport capacity without scaling operational complexity. The Infinera DTN-X increases network efficiency with five Terabits of non-blocking OTN switching per bay, scalable to 240 Tb/s in a multi-bay configuration and resulting in much more efficient utilization when compared to conventional WDM architectures. The Infinera solution includes an intelligent control plane that simplifies service deployment, enabling BICS to deploy networks in days and services in minutes thereby lowering operational costs while providing faster service delivery than the competition.
