OVH deploys Infinera’s DTN-X platform for Pan-European cloud 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 OVH will deploy the Infinera DTN-X platform (featuring 500 Gigabit per second (Gb/s) super-channels) for its Pan-European network. The DTN-X platform will enable OVH to increase its network capacity by potentially up to 10 times that previously offered, connecting data centers throughout 10 major European cities in seven countries, across 10,000 kms of optical fiber.

With the Infinera DTN-X platform, OVH will deploy multi-terabit optical transmission capacity across its optical network to support the growing capacity demands of cloud services. The DTN-X delivers the industry’s first commercially available 500 Gb/s long-haul optical super-channels, says Infinera.

“We continue to be impressed by Infinera’s PIC technology and the DTN-X platform–from significantly simplifying our operations and reducing the time to deploy bandwidth to fundamentally lowering our total cost of ownership.” said Octave Klaba, CEO at OVH.

A key factor in its selection of the DTN-X was the combination of integrated OTN switching with the delivery of 500 G/bs long-haul super-channels based on Infinera’s 500 Gb/s PIC and second generation FlexCoherent processor. Integrated OTN switching enables efficient utilization of long-haul capacity while at the same time enabling OVH to rapidly deploy large amounts of optical bandwidth for customer services.

Infinera’s DTN-X platform will be deployed across routes on OVH’s network, such as the 1,200 kms Roubaix-Paris-Strasbourg-Frankfurt route.
