OVH Deploys Infinera DTN-X to Deliver 500 Gb/s Super-Channels for Pan-European 
Cloud Network 
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/28/13 --  Infinera (NASDAQ:
INFN), a leading provider of Digital Optical Networks, announced
today that OVH will deploy the Infinera DTN-X platform for their
Pan-European Network, featuring 500 Gigabit per second (Gb/s)
super-channels. OVH is the largest web hosting company in Europe
supporting both public and private cloud services. The DTN-X platform
will enable OVH to increase its network capacity by potentially up to
10 times what was previously offered, connecting data centers
throughout 10 major European cities in seven countries.  
With the Infinera DTN-X platform, OVH will deploy multi-terabit
optical transmission capacity across its optical network to support
the growing and dynamic capacity demands of cloud services. The DTN-X
delivers the industry's first commercially available 500 Gb/s
long-haul optical super-channels, which OVH will deploy to provide
services to its consumers and enterprise customers with its data
centers, across 10,000 kms of optical fiber. 
OVH's customers require large amounts of bandwidth very quickly, and
a key factor in its selection of the DTN-X was the combination of
integrated OTN switching with
 the delivery of 500 G/bs long-haul
super-channels based on Infinera's 500 Gb/s Photonic Integrated
Circuit (PIC) and second generation FlexCoherent(TM) Processor.
Integrated OTN switching enables efficient utilization of long-haul
capacity while at the same time enabling OVH to rapidly deploy large
amounts of optical bandwidth for customer services. The Infinera
DTN-X platform will be deployed across routes on OVH's network, such
as the 1,200 kms Roubaix-Paris-Strasbourg-Frankfurt route, scaling
the capacity of the network while lowering operational costs.  
"We've chosen an innovative technology leader, offering the best
solution on the market to meet our capacity, flexibility and service
lead time requirements," said Octave Klaba, CEO at OVH. "We continue
to be impressed by Infinera's PIC technology and the DTN-X platform
-- from significantly simplifying our operations and reducing the
time to deploy bandwidth to fundamentally lowering our total cost of
"After a rigorous and competitive bid process, OVH's selection of the
DTN-X demonstrates that Infinera's solution for multi-terabit optical
networks proves valuable to markets above and beyond traditional
network operators," said Chris Champion, VP, EMEA Sales for Infinera.
"We are pleased that Infinera continues to grow within OVH's optical
footprint as they aggressively deploy cutting edge cloud and web
hosting services." 
OVH first selected Infinera's Digital Optical Network in 2007,
deploying the DTN platform for an international expansion across
