TeliaSonera International Carrier Expands Infinera Intelligent Transport Network Into Europe

TeliaSonera International Carrier Expands Infinera Intelligent Transport 
Network Into Europe 
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/12/13 --  Infinera (NASDAQ:
INFN), a leading provider of Intelligent Transport Networks(TM),
announced today the deployment of the Infinera DTN-X into TeliaSonera
International Carrier's (TSIC) European network. The Infinera
Intelligent Transport Network, featuring the DTN-X packet optical
transport networking platform, has already enabled TSIC to deliver 10
Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) and 100 GbE services to wholesale customers in
North America and now TSIC is expanding the network into Europe.  
TSIC, a leading global IP carrier, operates a wholly owned fiber
optic network connecting 200 Points of Presence (PoPs) across Europe,
North America and Asia. Customers include content providers and
network operators globally for IP, DWDM, Ethernet, voice and
specialized mobile services.  
TSIC is deploying an Intelligent Transport Network to scale network
capacity, automate operations and reduce complexity by converging
multi-layer switching with the industry's only commercially available
500 Gigabit per second coherent super-channel transmission. The
Infinera DTN-X is designed to scale without compromise to enable
future upgrades to terabit super-channels and Terabit Ethernet.  
"Stockholm to Hamburg is an important network route for us both for
delivering services to our Nordic and Baltic end-users and for being
part of the global long haul routes Europe-Russia and Europe-overland
to Asia," said Erik Hallberg, President of TSIC. "Our experience in
North America is that Infinera gives us a competitive edge by
enabling us to use time as a weapon to deliver 10 GbE and 100 GbE
services faster than the competition. We look forward to expanding
our Intelligent Transport Network into Europe with Infinera." 
"TSIC is building one of the most advanced networks in the world, and
they need a network that enables them to respond quickly to customer
requests for high-bandwidth services," said Chris Champion, Infinera
SVP, EMEA Sales. "TSIC's deployment of the Infinera Intelligent
Transport Network in Europe shows that together we are lighting the
way to the Terabit Era." 
TSIC first selected the Infinera DTN in 2009. In November 2011, TSIC
and Infinera performed the world's first terabit trial in California
based on DTN-X equipment. In June 2012, TSIC was named Best Global
NGN Optical Network at the DWDM Awards in Monaco. In November 2012
TSIC announced the deployment of the DTN-X platform with Infinera
Instant Bandwidth(TM) across its North American network. 
The Intelligent Transport Network enables carriers to use time as a
weapon to increase revenues with highly reliable, differentiated
services while reducing operating costs through scale, multi-layer
convergence and automation.
