Interoute Launches 100G Pan-European Network With Infinera DTN-X
SUNNYVALE, CA and LONDON -- (Marketwired) -- 04/16/13 -- Infinera
(NASDAQ: INFN), a leading provider of Digital Optical Networks, and
Interoute, owner/operator of Europe's largest cloud services
platform, announced today the deployment of the Infinera DTN-X
platform, featuring 500 Gigabit per second (Gb/s) long haul
super-channels, across Interoute's Pan-European network.
Interoute's Pan-European network connects 102 cities in 30 countries
and includes 21 dense city networks (MANs) in Europe's major business
centers and nine subsea landing stations. Interoute's fibre optic
network serves every major European national telecoms provider, as
well as major operators in North America, Africa, east and south Asia
and the Middle East, including major mobile operators, ISPs,
governments, universities and research agencies.
Interoute selected the Infinera DTN-X for the scale, efficiency and
simplicity the solutions brings to their network.
"The DTN-X helps us win in the marketplace," said Jonathan Wright,
Vice President, Service Provider at Interoute. "Speed to deliver
services is key in our industry. Infinera's solutions have enabled us
to deliver anywhere from 10Gb/s to 500Gb/s capacity quickly and
allows us to efficiently provision services, as the market dictates."
"The DTN-X continues to gain traction across the globe because
customers are realizing the benefits of investing in an optical
transport solution that converges OTN switching and WDM transport in
the same chassis," said Chris Champion, Vice President, EMEA Sales.
"The Infinera DTN-X platform enables operators like Interoute to win
new business by delivering services faster than their competitors
with a solution that eliminates the cost and complexity of
interconnections between discrete WDM and OTN systems."
Infinera is the first to deliver 500Gb/s long-haul super-channels
based on Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) and the FlexCoherent(TM)
Processor, scaling transport capacity without scaling operational
complexity. The Infinera DTN-X increases network efficiency with five
Terabits of non-blocking OTN switching per bay, scalable to 240 Tb/s
in a multi-bay configuration and resulting in much more efficient
n of the 100Gb/s waves when compared to conventional WDM
architectures. Infinera's Bandwidth Virtualization(TM) simplifies
service deployment, enabling Interoute to deploy networks in days and
services in minutes thereby lowering operational costs.
Interoute has deployed the Infinera DTN and ATN platforms throughout
their network. With the Infinera DTN-X, this offers Interoute an
end-to-end service delivery capability under one management system.
Infinera specializes in Digital Optical Networking systems that are
designed to continually improve the economics of optical networking
by combining the speed of optics with the simplicity of digital.
Infinera is unique in its use of breakthrough semiconductor
technology: Large Scale Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC). Infinera's
systems leverage PIC technology to provide customers with a
service-ready architecture that enables faster time-to-revenue and
greater profitability through network efficiency and the ability to
rapidly deliver differentiated services without reengineering their
optical infrastructure. For more information, please visit
