Infinera Demonstrates Transport SDN and Packet Technology on DTN-X Platform at Nissho Labs

Infinera Demonstrates Transport SDN and Packet Technology on DTN-X Platform at 
Nissho Labs 
SUNNYVALE, CA and TOKYO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/24/13 --  Infinera
(NASDAQ: INFN), a leader in Intelligent Transport Networks(TM), and
Nissho Electronics, a carrier class network systems integrator in
Japan, announced today the successful demonstration of converged
packet-optical technology and Transport Software Defined Network
(SDN) on an Infinera DTN-X network. The demonstration took place at
Nissho Labs NETFrontier Center in Tokyo. This confirms the continued
investment in and the leadership of the Intelligent Transport
Network. 
Key aspects of the packet-optical convergence demonstration on the
Infinera DTN-X includes Ethernet packet aggregation, VLAN switching,
and transport of MPLS pseudo-wires with signaling over 500G
super-channel based OTN ODUflex transport. This demonstration
showcased the value of converging DWDM, OTN and packet switching on
the same platform. 
The demonstration of Transport SDN featured a prototype Open
Transport Switch running on the Infinera DTN-X and working in
conjunction with an external SDN controller and various network
applications. The SDN controller provisioned bandwidth services on
demand across a network comprised of DTN-X nodes using the OpenFlow
protocol. The demonstration further leveraged service-ready
super-channel capacity, flexible Bandwidth Virtualization, and a
standards-based control plane to provide an optimal platform to
deliver Transport SDN functionality with the DTN-X.  
"Infinera's goal is to converge Ethernet and MPLS technology into the
transport layer on the DTN-X to increase the efficiency of core
networks for our customers with an Intelligent Transport Network,"
said Dave Welch, Infinera Co-Founder, Executive Vice President and
CTO. "This demonstration is an important step to prove that Ethernet,
MPLS, Transport SDN and the Open Transport Switch technologies can be
seamlessly integrated within this architecture."  
"Nissho strongly believes that the Infinera DTN-X is well suited for
the Japanese telecom market needs," said Toshiaki Kibe, Director and
Managing Executive Officer, General Manager Marketing Division and
General Manager Engineering Division at Nissho. "The DTN-X has proven
itself with
 several of our customers as a world class packet-optical
transport network platform, and is now demonstrating its capability
as a future proof platform by showcasing the benefits of seamless
packet integration and Transport SDN." 
"Integrated packet technology in a converged MPLS/OTN/DWDM platform
combined with Transport SDN are key capabilities to increase
automation and network efficiency while ensuring rapid end-to-end
service provisioning for future multi-terabit networks, and this
demonstration highlights that the Infinera DTN-X is definitely well
positioned to help operators meet those challenges," David Krozier,
Principal Analyst, Network Infrastructure at Ovum. 
The Intelligent Transport Network helps carriers use time as a weapon
to increase revenues with reliable, differentiated services while
reducing operating costs through scale, multi-layer convergence and
automation. The Intelligent Transport Network delivers 500 Gb/s
FlexCoherent(TM) super-channels today and is designed to scale
without compromise to enable terabit super-channels and Terabit
Ethernet in the future.
