Sunnyvale, CA and London, April 16 — Infinera, a leading provider of Digital Optical Networks, and Interoute, owner/operator of Europe's largest cloud services platform, announced today the deployment of the Infinera DTN-X platform, featuring 500 Gigabit per second (Gb/s) long haul super-channels, across Interoute's Pan-European network.
Interoute’s Pan-European network connects 102 cities in 30 countries and includes 21 dense city networks (MANs) in Europe’s major business centers and nine subsea landing stations. Interoute’s fibre optic network serves every major European national telecoms provider, as well as major operators in North America, Africa, east and south Asia and the Middle East, including major mobile operators, ISPs, governments, universities and research agencies.
Interoute selected the Infinera DTN-X for the scale, efficiency and simplicity the solutions brings to their network.
"The DTN-X helps us win in the marketplace," said Jonathan Wright, Vice President, Service Provider at Interoute. "Speed to deliver services is key in our industry. Infinera's solutions have enabled us to deliver anywhere from 10Gb/s to 500Gb/s capacity quickly and allows us to efficiently provision services, as the market dictates."
"The DTN-X continues to gain traction across the globe because customers are realizing the benefits of investing in an optical transport solution that converges OTN switching and WDM transport in the same chassis," said Chris Champion, Vice President, EMEA Sales. “The Infinera DTN-X platform enables operators like Interoute to win new business by delivering services faster than their competitors with a solution that eliminates the cost and complexity of interconnections between discrete WDM and OTN systems.”
Infinera is the first to deliver 500Gb/s long-haul super-channels based on Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) and the FlexCoherent Processor, scaling transport capacity without scaling operational complexity. The Infinera DTN-X increases network efficiency with five Terabits of non-blocking OTN switching per bay, scalable to 240 Tb/s in a multi-bay configuration and resulting in much more efficient utilization of the 100Gb/s waves when compared to conventional WDM architectures. Infinera’s Bandwidth Virtualization simplifies service deployment, enabling Interoute to deploy networks in days and services in minutes thereby lowering operational costs.
Interoute has deployed the Infinera DTN and ATN platforms throughout their network. With the Infinera DTN-X, this offers Interoute an end-to-end service delivery capability under one management system.
Infinera specializes in Digital Optical Networking systems that are designed to continually improve the economics of optical networking by combining the speed of optics with the simplicity of digital. Infinera is unique in its use of breakthrough semiconductor technology: Large Scale Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC). Infinera's systems leverage PIC technology to provide customers with a service-ready architecture that enables faster time-to-revenue and greater profitability through network efficiency and the ability to rapidly deliver differentiated services without reengineering their optical infrastructure.
Interoute Communications Ltd is the owner operator of Europe's largest cloud services platform, which encompasses over 60,000 km of lit fibre, 10 hosting data centres and 31 collocation centres, with connections to 140 additional third-party data centres across Europe.
