Interoute deploys 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), and Interoute, the owner and operator of Europe's largest cloud services platform, have announced 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.

"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 says it is the first to deliver 500Gb/s long-haul super-channels based on PICs and the FlexCoherent Processor. The 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.
