FX Networks Selects Infinera for Multi-Terabit New Zealand Nationwide 
Intelligent Transport Network(TM) 
SUNNYVALE, CA and WELLINGTON, NEW ZEALAND -- (Marketwired) --
07/03/13 --  Infinera (NASDAQ: INFN), a leader in Intelligent
Transport Networks, and FX Networks, owner and operator of a national
network in New Zealand, announced today the selection of the Infinera
DTN-X platform for its nationwide network. The Infinera DTN-X,
featuring 500 Gigabit per second (Gb/s) long haul super-channels
enables FX Networks to build a new network infrastructure delivering
10, 40 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) services to service providers
and research and education networks.  
FX Networks, a new DTN-X customer for Infinera, owns and operates a
national high-capacity inter-city fibre optic network throughout New
Zealand. FX Networks partnered with REANNZ, New Zealand's Research
and Education Network, to build this multi-terabit countrywide
network. The innovative arrangement included joint investment and
fiber sharing between the two entities to increase the capacity and
footprint of the network. This new infrastructure will provide a
multi-terabit network to offer scientists across New Zealand the
opportunity to participate in the world's most cutting edge and data
intensive experiments.  
FX Networks, who will operate the network under the agreement with
REANNZ, selected the Infinera DTN-X platform to deliver 500 Gb/s
coherent super-channels on their network, along with its future
scalability to one Terabit per second (Tb/s) super-channels, the
efficiency delivered by its five Tb/s integrated OTN switch and the
simplicity of its open intelligent software control. FX Networks also
plans to offer 10, 40 and 100 GbE services to a broad set of
wholesale customers across New Zealand and will leverage the ability
of the DTN-X to deliver these services quickly.  
"We are seeing burgeoning demand for high speed data services in New
Zealand, impacted by the growing trend towards the use of cloud based
services and an insatiable demand for content from customers of the
ISP's that rely on our backhaul services," said David Heald, CEO at
FX Networks. "We expect this to continue and accelerate with the
ongoing deployment of Ultra Fast Broadband (UFB) access services
throughout most of New Zealand. The deployment of Infinera's DTN-X
platform is a crucial part of our strategy to provide uncontended,
reliable, cost effective data services between New Zealand's UFB
Points of Interconnect, which are becoming the key locations for data
aggregation in New Zealand." 
"The partnership with FX Networks to deploy this massive optical
network across New Zealand is a significant change for this country,"
said Steve Cotter, CEO of REANNZ. "With the Infinera super-channels
we will be able to offer up to 100GbE services providing our
scientific community with the fastest network technology available
today, putting them on a level playing field with the rest of the
world." 
"Infinera is pleased to work with our in-country partner Dimension
Data to deliver and support this multi-terabit optical network across
New Zealand for FX Networks and REANNZ," said Andrew Bond Webster, VP
Sales, APAC, for Infinera. "The Intelligent Transport Network offers
differentiated services while reducing operating costs through scale,
multi-layer convergence and automation, enabling high-capacity
services to be delivered quickly throughout the country." 
FX Networks 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 Gb/s 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.
