Infinera Completes OSMINE Services Process for DTN-X and DTN Platforms

Infinera Completes OSMINE Services Process for DTN-X and DTN Platforms 
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/01/13 --   Infinera (NASDAQ:
INFN), a leading provider of Digital Optical Networks, announced
today the test completion of Ericsson (formerly Telcordia
Technologies) Operations Systems Modification for the Integration of
Network Elements (OSMINE) Services process for the Infinera DTN-X
platform and the latest release of the DTN platform. This was
fulfilled for various products within the OSMINE process including
inventory management via TIRKS(R), fault management via NMA(R)
System, and service provisioning via Transport Element Activation
Manager.  
The test completion of Ericsson's OSMINE process is a significant
event for Infinera. OSMINE certification enables U.S. Tier 1 service
providers to successfully integrate Infinera's DTN-X and the latest
release of DTN into Ericsson Operations Support Systems (OSS)
ensuring the interoperability of Infinera platforms with existing
systems and enabling service providers to accelerate their network
deployment rapidly upon selection of Infinera. This is also a first
for any network equipment vendor to accomplish an OTN-based OSMINE
certification that includes ODUflex capabilities as the Infinera
DTN-X and DTN are based on an advanced architecture that integrates
WDM transport and OTN switching including ODUflex/ODU0 granularity in
a single platform. 
"Completion of the Ericsson OSMINE process is an important
achievement for network equipment suppliers looking to sell into the
Tier 1 market," said Elisabetta Romano, Head of OSS, Business Unit
Support Solutions, Ericsson. "This industry-recognized OSS network
integration process validates that vendors like Infinera are ready to
sell into the Tier 1 market and provides service providers with the
confidence that the DTN-X and DTN platforms are network-ready
solutions." 
"The test completion of OSMINE for DTN-X and DTN is a critical
milestone for Infinera," said Tom Fallon, Infinera CEO. "This
certification satisfies the requirements for our existing customer
and proves to U.S. Tier 1 service providers that Infinera solutions
can now operate with the Ericsson OSSs." 
Infinera is the first to commercially deliver optical networking
solutions based on Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs). The Infinera
DTN-X platform features 500 Gb/s long-haul super-channels based on
the FlexCoherent(TM) Processor, scaling transport capacity without
scaling operational complexity. In Dell'Oro's Q3 2012 quarterly
long-haul optical transport market share report, the DTN-X achieved
the number one market share position with 38% worldwide share of 100G
ports recognized for revenue. Infinera's DTN platform features 100
Gb/s PICs and revolutionized the marketplace in its initial release.
Both platforms are deployed in networks globally, offering service
providers simple, scalable, and reliable optical network solutions.
