KDDI Selects Infinera DTN-X With Instant Bandwidth(TM) for 100G Network

KDDI Selects Infinera DTN-X With Instant Bandwidth(TM) for 100G Network 
TOKYO -- (Marketwire) -- 02/04/13 --  Infinera (NASDAQ: INFN)
announced today KDDI Corporation's (KDDI) selection of the Infinera
DTN-X platform with Instant Bandwidth(TM) via its local partner
Nissho Electronics to upgrade the Miyazaki - Okinawa Cable network in
Japan. The upgrade will offer a robust network, providing
multi-Terabit optical transmission to deliver 100 Gigabit per second
(Gb/s) services across the country. 
KDDI, an integrated Japanese telecommunications provider, owns and
operates the Miyazaki - Okinawa Cable, an independent cable system
that links to the Japan Information Highway cable system, stretching
10,300 km. KDDI's deployment of the Infinera DTN-X on this network
will provide service providers 100 Gb/s services quickly and
efficiently, on-demand.  
"The DTN-X provides us with an industry leading 100G transport
solution that differentiates us in the marketplace," said Shigeto
Kiritani, General Manager and Head of International Network
Department at KDDI. "By deploying the DTN-X we can rapidly increase
the capacity of our system while enabling a robust network that is
scalable and efficient. With Infinera's Instant Bandwidth(TM) feature
on the DTN-X, we are able to activate 100G services instantly on an
as-needed basis." 
"Infinera is committed to offering the most innovative optical
transport solutions globally," said Andrew Bond-Webster, VP APAC
Sales for Infinera. "We are pleased that KDDI has selected the DTN-X
on this critical network. The DTN-X provides simple operations,
scalable super-channel bandwidth and efficient network utilization.
Infinera's unique Instant Bandwidth(TM) is a key feature that helps
our customers, like KDDI, win in the marketplace by delivering
services faster than their competitors." 
Infinera is the first to deliver 500 Gb/s long-haul super-channels
based on Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) and FlexCoherent(TM)
Processor, scaling transport capacity without scaling operational
complexity. Infinera's Instant Bandwidth(TM) is industry's first
software-activated 100G bandwidth delivery solution which enables a
success-based business model for service providers allowing them to
deploy 100G capacity the same day as th
ey turn on the customer
services. Infinera's DTN-X also integrates 5 Tb/s of OTN switching
combined with an intelligent control plane, enabling service
providers to effectively manage revenue generating services while
maximizing efficient use of their infrastructure.
