Telecom Lead America: Digital optical communications
solutions provider Infinera has got deployment orders from two new
customers, Cable&Wireless Worldwide for its Europe Persia Express Gateway
(EPEG) and DANTE for its GÃ‰ANT European Research and Education Network.
The company said that it has started shipping its DTN-X
platform to customers for deployment.
Additionally, the company has got deployment orders from

“While our competitors talk about their roadmaps for
metro 400 Gb/s super-channels, Infinera is delivering the industry’s first 500
Gb/s long haul FlexCoherent super-channels,” said Dave Welch, co-founder,
EVP and Chief Strategy Officer at Infinera.
The company claims that they are bringing the largest
capacity OTN switch to market with its DTN-X, platform. Also, it is delivering
the industry’s first deployable FlexCoherent capability.
The DTN-X is the successor of Infinera’s DTN platform
that offered the only optical networking solution based on 100 Gb/s photonic integrated
The DTN-X platform builds on this foundation of
innovation and features the third generation 500 Gb/s PICs.
The platform allows service providers to focuses on
simplicity, scalability, efficiency and reliability. Aslso, with 500 gigabit
per second (Gb/s) long-haul FlexCoherent super-channels, the platform enables
providers to deploy massive optical transport while lowering operational costs.
The DTN-X platform features 5 Terabits per second (Tb/s)
of optical transport network (OTN) switching capacity. Integrated switching
enables service providers to build highly efficient networks with switching
activated wherever it is needed to improve wavelength fill and decrease the
number of wavelengths that must be deployed.
Infinera launches network Efficiency Quotient
Recently, Infinera launched the network Efficiency
Quotient (EQ), which is designed for comparing optical transport network architectures,
enabling network operators to evaluate the effect of architectural decisions on
the total cost of ownership.
