Infinera Photonic Integrated Circuits Exceed One Billion Hours of Failure-Free Operation

Infinera Photonic Integrated Circuits Exceed One Billion Hours of Failure-Free 
Operation 
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/17/13 --  Infinera (NASDAQ:
INFN), a leading provider of Intelligent Transport Networks(TM),
announced today that Infinera's photonic integrated circuits (PICs)
recently surpassed one billion hours of failure-free operation in
live networks worldwide. This achievement underscores the reliability
of Infinera's PICs and the key role they play in creating Intelligent
Transport Networks. 
This figure is a cumulative total for all of the PICs that Infinera
has shipped to customers since late 2004 in the Infinera DTN and
DTN-X platforms. PICs are deployed by 109 customers in 67 countries
around the world to light over one million kilometers of fiber and
provide over three petabits per second of transmission capacity. 
"This achievement is a very significant milestone for Infinera," said
Rick Talbot, Current Analysis. "It demonstrates that photonic
integration offers the same kind of benefits in reliability as
silicon integration for electronics has demonstrated over the past 50
years. This reliability is critical as operators leverage PICs for
cost-effective super-channel solutions to scale Intelligent Transport
Networks." 
"We are excited to make this announcement, as it demonstrates that
Infinera has revolutionized this marketplace with our photonic
integrated circuits," said Dave Welch, Infinera Co-Founder, Executive
Vice President and CTO. "Our solutions, based on photonic integrated
circuits, provide global service providers with the reliability they
demand to operate Intelligent Transport Networks." 
Infinera continues to lead the long-haul 100G optical transport
market since its entry in Q2 2012. The company announced last month
that the Dell'Oro Group ranked Infinera number one for the first
quarter of 2013 in the global long-haul 100G wavelength division
multiplexing (WDM) market.  
The Intelligent Transport Network is an evolution of Infinera's
Digital Optical Network and is showcased by the DTN-X platform and
the Infinera portfolio. The DTN-X is engineered to be scalable and
provide investment protection with one terabit per slot capacity
ready for future terabit super-channels and Terabit Ethernet. It was
designed from the ground up to converge DWDM transmission and OTN
switching today along with optical and MPLS switching in the future.
It is automated with an intelligent control plane and provides a
platform for Transport SDN and Infinera's Open Transport Switch. With
the Intelligent Transport Network and the DTN-X, carriers can
increase revenues with rapid service delivery, reduce capital costs
through multi-layer optimization and reduce operating costs through
multi-layer automation.
