BICS opts for Infinera’s DTN-X for 500G pan-European 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 its DTN-X platform has been selected to upgrade BICS' Pan-European network. Infinera’s DTN-X delivers 500Gb/s long-haul super-channels, enabling BICS to deliver flexible and cost effective 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) services.

BICS offers international wholesale solutions to any communication service provider through a network of 100 points of presence in 55 cities and 33 countries across the globe.
The Infinera DTN-X platform was selected to upgrade BICS' Pan-European network, stretching across 9000km of fiber in Europe and linking through a cable landing station in Marseille into the EIG & SEA-ME-WE 4 submarine cable systems.

“The Infinera DTN-X allows BICS to provide flexible solutions and ensures a faster service implementation, translating into a shorter time to market for our customers,” says Johan Wouters, SVP Capacity Business Management at BICS. “This new platform will enable the aggregation of multiple high speed services on a single OTN interface. The advanced control plane offers the possibility of self-provisioning for high capacity services making BICS the perfect network outsourcing partner.”

Infinera is the first to deliver 500Gb/s long-haul super-channels based PICs and the FlexCoherent Processor, scaling transport capacity without scaling operational complexity. The Infinera DTN-X increases network efficiency with five Terabits of non-blocking OTN switching per bay, scalable to 240Tb/s in a multi-bay configuration and resulting in much more efficient utilization when compared to conventional WDM architectures. The Infinera solution includes an intelligent control plane that simplifies service deployment, enabling BICS to deploy networks in days and services in minutes thereby lowering operational costs while providing faster service delivery than the competition.

"We’re seeing increasing traction for the DTN-X, evidenced by the purchase commitments we have received from 27 customers around the world for this new platform, out of our 115 total customers.” says Chris Champion, Infinera VP, EMEA sales.
