Dacom Crossing Deploys Infinera for Multi-Terabit Intelligent Transport Network(TM) Across South Korea

Dacom Crossing Deploys Infinera for Multi-Terabit Intelligent Transport 
Network(TM) Across South Korea 
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/19/13 --   Infinera (NASDAQ:
INFN), a leading provider of Intelligent Transport Networks,
announced today that Dacom Crossing, a Korean provider of
international IP communications, has deployed the Infinera DTN-X
packet optical networking platform delivering a fully integrated
network connecting Seoul, the terrestrial backhaul network and the
EAC Korea landing station. The Infinera Intelligent Transport
Network, featuring the DTN-X, enables Dacom Crossing to offer 10, 40
and 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) services in addition to existing
International Private Lease Circuit services up to 10 Gigabit per
second (Gb/s). The Infinera Intelligent Transport Network allow Dacom
Crossing 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. With Infinera
Instant Bandwidth(TM), Dacom Crossing further benefits from the rapid
deployment of bandwidth in 100 Gb/s increments on demand.  
"The DTN-X allows us to scale our network as needed based on customer
demand, while providing unprecedented speed and reliability," said JH
Kim, Dacom Crossing CEO. "Coupled with the Instant Bandwidth feature,
which allows us to deploy increments of 100G services, Infinera's
solutions enable differentiation by shortening provisioning times,
accelerating service delivery, and reducing time to revenue."  
Dacom Crossing provides wholesale services to Tier One carriers,
ISP's and content providers, and is the first Korean network operator
to deploy Infinera's solutions. Dacom Crossing is deploying an
Intelligent Transport Network enabled by the industry's only
commercially available 500 Gb/s coherent super-channel transmission.
The Infinera DTN-X is designed to scale without compromise to provide
for future upgrades to terabit super-channels and Terabit Ethernet. 
"Dacom Crossing is now providing South Korea with its first
Intelligent Transport Network, featuring the industry's only solution
designed with photonic integrated circuits," said Andrew
Bond-Webster, vice president APAC Sales for Infinera. "Our solution's
ability to quickly and reliably provide network services on demand,
with the ability to scale in the most efficient manner, really stood
out against our competitors."  
The Infinera DTN-X is designed to scale without compromise to enable
future upgrades to terabit super-channels and Terabit Ethernet. The
DTN-X converges five Terabits of non-blocking OTN switching into the
same platform, resulting in more efficient network utilization when
compared to conventional WDM architectures. Intelligent software
combined with this converged platform automates manual operations to
lower operational costs and enable faster service delivery.

This press release contains forward-looking statements including,
among other things, statements relating to Infinera product
capabilities, advantages, and the current and planned future
functionality including: that use of the Infinera DTN-X platform will
increase revenues; that the DTN-X delivers the industry's only
production ready long haul 500G FlexCoherent super-channels based on
500 Gb/s PICs; that this will be South Korea's first Intelligent
Transport Network featuring the industry's only solution based on
photonic integration; that the Infinera DTN-X is engineered to be
upgradeable to one Terabit super-channels in the future; that the
DTN-X converges five Terabits of non-blocking OTN switching into the
same platform, resulting in much more efficient network utilization
when compared to conventional WDM architectures; and that Intelligent
software combined with this converged platform automates manual
operations to lower operational costs and enables faster service
delivery. These forward looking statements are based on our current
expectations. Actual results may vary materially from these
expectations as a result of various risks and uncertainties,
including, but not limited to, aggressive business tactics by our
competitors, our ability to protect our intellectual property rights,
our reliance on single-source suppliers, and our ability to respond
