Pacnet Deploys Infinera DTN-X With 500 Gb/s Super-Channels Throughout Its Subsea Network in Asia

Pacnet Deploys Infinera DTN-X With 500 Gb/s Super-Channels Throughout Its 
Subsea Network in Asia 
SUNNYVALE, CA and HONG KONG -- (Marketwire) -- 03/18/13 --   Infinera
(NASDAQ: INFN), a leading provider of Digital Optical Networks and
Pacnet, a leading provider of integrated network and technology
solutions in the Asia-Pacific region, announced today Pacnet's
deployment of the Infinera DTN-X platform, featuring 500 Gigabit per
second (Gb/s) long-haul super-channels.  
The DTN-X platform provides Pacnet with what we believe is the
industry's most technologically advanced solution for 100 Gb/s
services and is the largest regional deployment of 100 Gb/s
technology to date. 
Pacnet owns and operates EAC and C2C, Asia's leading state-of-the-art
fiber optic submarine cable networks with 21 cable landing stations
extending from India to the U.S. The network spans 46,800 km and
serves global customers with a comprehensive range of network and
managed services. 
"The Infinera DTN-X FlexCoherent modulation capabilities, integrated
control plane, and seamless subsea to terrestrial integration with
the existing network further enhances our Data Center connectivity
and network virtualization strategy," said Andy Lumsden, Pacnet Chief
Technology Officer. "The ability to deliver and commission the DTN-X
rapidly meant that our network upgrade was fully deployed within nine
weeks, allowing us to deliver services to customers with a high level
of confidence and resilience. The Infinera solution greatly advances
our Layer 3 to Optical convergence and Network-as-a-Service
initiatives." 
Infinera is the first to deliver 500 Gb/s long-haul super-channels
based on Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) and the FlexCoherent(TM)
Processor, scaling transport capacity without scaling operational
complexity. Infinera's PICs combine multiple optical subsystems on a
single IC and results in fewer fiber connections, less space, and
less power when compared to conventional systems based upon discrete
components.  
Today, Infinera introduced FastSMP(TM), what we believe is the
industry's only hardware accelerated Shared Mesh Protection
technology. FastSMP(TM) will deliver dramatic improvements in
network-wide resilience to service providers while lowering total
network costs.  
"Pacnet operates one of the most robust and physically meshed SLTE
networks in the world and we believe that the DTN-X with its
FastSMP(TM) capability compliments the needs of Pacnet and its
customers by offering the highest service levels within the region,"
said Andrew Bond Webster, VP APAC Sales for Infinera.  
The Infinera DTN-X increases network efficiency by converging 500
Gb/s long-haul super-channels with 5 Terabits of integrated OTN
switching per bay, resulting in much more efficient utilization when
compared to conventional WDM architectures. Infinera's Bandwidth
Virtualization(TM) simplifies service deployment, enabling operators
to deploy networks in days and services in minutes, thereby lowering
operational costs.
