KDDI selects Infinera’s DTN-X to upgrade Japan’s Miyazaki – Okinawa Cable network

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 KDDI Corporation has selected the Infinera DTN-X platform with Instant Bandwidth via its local partner Nissho Electronics to upgrade the Miyazaki – Okinawa Cable network in Japan. The upgrade will provide multi-terabit optical transmission to deliver 100 gigabit per second (Gb/s) services across the country.

KDDI owns and operates the Miyazaki – Okinawa Cable, an independent cable system that links to the Japan Information Highway cable system, stretching 10,300 km.

“By deploying the DTN-X we can rapidly increase the capacity of our system while enabling a robust network that is scalable and efficient. With Infinera’s Instant Bandwidth feature on the DTN-X, we are able to activate 100G services instantly on an as-needed basis.” said Shigeto Kiritani, general manager and head of International Network Department at KDDI.

Infinera says it is the first to deliver 500 Gb/s long-haul super-channels based on PICs and FlexCoherent processor. Infinera’s Instant Bandwidth is the first software-activated 100G bandwidth delivery solution which enables a success-based business model for service providers allowing them to deploy 100G capacity the same day as they turn on the customer services, adds the firm. DTN-X also integrates 5 Tb/s of OTN switching combined with an intelligent control plane.
