OTEGLOBE doubles TransBalkan network capacity with Infinera’s DTN-X Platform

Infinera Corp of Sunnyvale, CA, USA, a vertically integrated manufacturer of digital optical network systems incorporating its own indium phosphide-based photonic integrated circuits (PICs), says that OTEGLOBE, an international telecommunications provider in Greece and the Balkans, has completed the upgrade of its international TransBalkan Network (TBN) by deploying 500 Gigabit per second (Gb/s) super channels with Infinera’s DTN-X platform. The TransBalkan network stretches from Greece to Germany across more than 8,000 km and is designed to offer multi-Terabits of capacity.

With this upgrade, OTEGLOBE doubled the available capacity on this network from 600 Gb/s to more than 1 Terabit per second (Tb/s). The network is able to support 10 Gb/s, 40 Gb/s and  100 Gb/s services to its customers, international carriers, fixed and mobile operators, and multi-site organizations.

Infinera’s DTN-X combines 500 Gb/s long haul super-channels with 5Tb/s of integrated OTN switching capacity, and provides an intelligent, standardized GMPLS control plane for high-speed restoration.

“We have been working with Infinera since 2008 using the DTN platform in our TBN network,” said Dr. Panagiota Bosdogianni, OTEGLOBE’s technology director. “During the past 4 years we took advantage of Infinera's solution for its flexibility, reliability and ease of use, allowing us to activate new 10 Gb/s services in minutes. Being satisfied with our Infinera experience we selected the new DTN-X platform for our recent network upgrade, which has been successfully completed without disturbing existing traffic or our network operation procedures.”
