OTEGLOBE Doubles International TransBalkan Network Capacity by Deploying 500 Gb/s Super-Channels With the Infinera DTN-X

OTEGLOBE Doubles International TransBalkan Network Capacity by Deploying 500 
Gb/s Super-Channels With the Infinera DTN-X Platform 
SUNNYVALE, CA and ATHENS, GREECE -- (Marketwired) -- 04/03/13 -- 
OTEGLOBE, the leading international telecommunications provider in
Greece and the Balkans and Infinera, (NASDAQ: INFN), a leading
provider of Digital Optical Networks, completed the upgrade of
OTEGLOBE's international TransBalkan Network (TBN) by deploying 500
Gigabit per second (Gb/s) super channels with the Infinera DTN-X
platform. The Infinera DTN-X platform is deployed in OTEGLOBE's
TransBalkan network which stretches from Greece to Germany across
more than 8,000 km and is designed to offer multi-Terabits of
capacity. 
With this upgrade, OTEGLOBE doubled the available capacity on this
network from 600 Gb/s to more than 1 Terabit per second (Tb/s)
meeting the telecommunication needs of Europe and the constantly
increasing demand in the regions of Middle East and Africa. At the
same time, OTEGLOBE's network is able to support 10 Gb/s, 40 Gb/s and
100 Gb/s services to its customers, international carriers, fixed and
mobile operators, and multi-site organizations. 
The Infinera DTN-X uniquely combines 500 Gb/s long haul
super-channels with 5Tb/s of integrated OTN switching capacity
enabling OTEGLOBE to offer highly scalable, efficient and reliable
services. The Infinera DTN-X solution also provides an intelligent,
standardized GMPLS control plane for high-speed restoration. 
"We have been working with Infinera since 2008 using the DTN platform
in our TBN network," states Dr. Panagiota Bosdogianni, OTEGLOBE's
Technology Director. "During the past 4 years we took advantage of
Infinera's solution for its flexibility, reliability and ease of use,
allowing us to activate new 10 Gb/s services in minutes. Being
satisfied with our Infinera experience we selected the new DTN-X
platform for our recent network upgrade, which has been successfully
completed without disturbing existing traffic or our network
operation procedures." 
"Infinera is committed to delivering the most reliable and latest
technology to our customers without the expense of conventional
network architectures," said Chris Champion, VP EMEA Sales. "We are
excited that OTEGLOBE has deployed 
the Infinera DTN-X platform for
their international network, bringing improved reliability to global
carriers in the region."
