Infinera and FSUE ZNIIS Demonstrate 500 Gb/s Super-Channel Transmission With 
Infinera DTN-X Providing up to 8 Tb/s Scalability 
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/19/13 --  Infinera (NASDAQ:
INFN), a leading provider of Digital Optical Networks, announced
today the completion of its first ultra-long-haul lab trial in Russia
with FSUE ZNIIS, Russia's Central Science and Research
Telecommunications Institute and the integrator of the latest
technological advances in telecommunications in Russia. This trial
demonstrates Infinera's ability to supply scalable, efficient and
high capacity optical networking solutions to meet the needs of
service providers in Russia. 
The DTN-X trial with FSUE ZNIIS took place at ZNIIS' Techno Park in
Moscow, successfully demonstrating 8 Terabits per second (Tb/s) of
DWDM capacity across 1,175 kilometers. The network configuration
provided flexible service add/drop and non-blocking OTN-switching
capabilities and enabled a variety of different types of traffic
demands including high speed 100 Gigabit Ethernet services (Gb/E), 40
Gb/E as well as widely used 10 Gb/E and 10 Gb/s SDH services. The
trial was based on Infinera's DTN-X platform, using 500 Gb/s
super-channels and integrated non-blocking OTN-switching. The
all-in-one solution helps service providers steadily grow their
network capacity up to 8 Tb/s.  
"We are impressed by Infinera and the DTN-X solution, especially by
its ability to quickly deploy and launch a DWDM line to demonstrate
long-haul transmission," said Mrs. Svetlana Yarlykova, Scientific
Director at FSUE ZNIIS. "The equipment was easy to operate. We are
confident that Russian service providers will see the value in
Infinera's next generation solution, offering an architecture that's
simple and reliable due to photonic integration." 
"We are pleased to complete this trial with ZNIIS," said Chris
Champion, vice president EMEA sales. "The success of this
demonstration is a milestone for Infinera. We demonstrated that our
next generation DWDM optical networking solution, the Infinera DTN-X,
is certified and available to the Russian market." 
The Infinera DTN-X is the first to deliver 500 Gb/s long-haul
super-channels based on Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) and the
FlexCoherent(TM) Processor, scaling tra
nsport capacity without
scaling operational complexity.
