MedNautilus deploys Infinera’s DTN-X platform across the Mediterranean to increase subsea network capacity

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 Telecom Italia Sparkle Group, say that MedNautilus has deployed the Infinera DTN-X platform across the Mediterranean to increase capacity on its subsea network and deliver up to 100Gb/s international connectivity services.

MedNautilus, the Mediterranean operations of the Telecom Italia Sparkle Group, operates the largest protected submarine cable network in the Mediterranean connecting Italy, Greece, Turkey, Israel and Cyprus, and serves the growing capacity needs of the region, says Infinera.

“Mednautilus now operates the first submarine cable network in Europe able to provide up to 100Gb/s  international connectivity services with a solution that ensures top quality and efficiency standards,” said Mario Pirro, Sparkle’s EVP Technology. “The market in the region is demanding faster and more advanced services and with the Infinera DTN-X solution for the provision of 100Gb/s services, we are able to provide the capacity we need in order to meet the fast growing requirements of our customers throughout the markets covered by our backbone.”

“We are pleased that MedNautilus selected us to build out one of the regions fastest growing networks,” said Chris Champion, VP EMEA Sales for Infinera. “The simplicity of the DTN-X allows us to upgrade any backbone quickly, enabling our customers to deploy services faster while offering outstanding reliability."

Infinera's DTN-X is the first to deliver up to 500 Gb/s long-haul super-channels based on PICs and the FlexCoherent processor.
