Service Electric Deploys Infinera Intelligent Transport Network in Northeastern
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/03/14 -- Infinera (NASDAQ:
INFN), provider of Intelligent Transport Networks(TM), announced
today that cable operator Service Electric Cable TV & Communications
(Service Electric) has deployed the Infinera DTN platform across its
new regional network serving customers in Central and Northeastern
Pennsylvania and Northwestern New Jersey.
Service Electric selected an Infinera Intelligent Transport Network
for the speed, simplicity and reliability that the Infinera DTN
brings to their network. Service Electric provides residential and
commercial cable and telecommunications services, offering a full
range of broadband services to their customers. By deploying the
Infinera DTN, Service Electric can quickly deliver services ranging
from 155 megabits per second (Mb/s) to 100 gigabits per second
(Gb/s). The platform's operational simplicity allows the existing
engineering team to manage the regional network without the need to
add additional engineering resources.
"We have a very busy engineering team, so we're looking for
intelligent solutions that simplify network operations and accelerate
new service turn-up. This allows us to focus on growing our
business," said John M. Walson, President of Service Electric. "An
Infinera Intelligent Network lets us do just that. With one-time
optical layer engineering coupled with intelligent software that
automates many provisioning operations that were previously manual,
the Infinera solution allows our engineers to turn up services
quickly. This gives us a competitive advantage with our customers."
"Cable and telecommunication operators like Service Electric see the
value in an optical networking solution that is simple to operate and
can deliver on services quickly," said Mike Kelly, Vice President of
Cable Sales at Infinera. "The Infinera DTN, enabled by photonic
integrated circuits and integrated digital switching, allows
operators to add capacity to their network quickly without
complicated engineering, and the DTN's reliability means MSO
engineers can spend more time generating new revenue rather than
fixing problems in the network."
Infinera's solutions for cable operators include the Infinera DTN, an
Intelligent Transport platform for long-haul and metro core platform;
the Infinera ATN metro edge platform designed to provide scalable
optical transport for access and commercial service aggregation; and
the Infinera DTN-X platform featuring 500 Gb/s long-haul
super-channels. Infinera's Intelligent Transport Network solutions
are widely deployed by major U.S. MSOs in national backbone,
regional, and metro applications.
Infinera provides Intelligent Transport Networks to
help carriers exploit the increasing demand for cloud-based services
and data center connectivity as they advance into the Terabit Era.
Infinera is unique in its use of breakthrough semiconductor
technology to deliver large scale Photonic Integrated Circuit (PICs)
and the application of PICs to vertically integrated optical
networking solutions that deliver the industry's only commercially
available 500 Gb/s FlexCoherent super-channels. Infinera Intelligent
Transport Network solutions include the DTN-X, DTN and ATN platforms.
