Infinera supports Sparkle’s Nibble Network, connecting Sicily with Europe


Infinera, a provider of networking solution, announced that Sparkle, Italy, has selected Infinera’s XT-3600 to launch ultra-long-haul photonic Nibble Network connecting Sicily with Europe.

Sparkle, the first international service provider in Italy and among the top 10 global operators, launched Nibble to deliver industry-leading connectivity between the most important European locations, meeting the network capacity requirements of carriers and enterprises.

The network will benefit from XT-3600’s higher performance, small form factor, low power consumption, and ability to seamlessly interoperate with its existing Infinera network, the company said.

The integration simplifies operations and helps Sparkle to quickly activate new and on-demand capacity for customers upon request without network over-provisioning, the company said in a statement.

With the XT-3600, Sparkle delivers 100 Gigabit Ethernet cloud-scale services in a compact form factor while automating service activation through Instant Bandwidth.

Bob Jandro, senior vice president, Worldwide Sales at Infinera, said, “As bandwidth demands continue to grow, operators seek solutions that can scale capacity and simplify operations. The Infinera XT-3600 is yet another example of how Infinera is transforming transport networks to cloud scale.”
