GlobeNet deploys Infinera Intelligent Transport Network

GlobeNet, a wholesale provider of Latin and North America data network services, has deployed the DTN-X packet optical transport networking platform of 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), across its North America routes in the Northeast and South Florida, with further connectivity to Latin America over its subsea network. Infinera says that its Intelligent Transport Network, featuring the DTN-X platform, enables GlobeNet to differentiate its services and increase network efficiency as it scales network capacity.

GlobeNet operates more than 23,500km of fiber-optic subsea cable linking the Americas. As a carrier’s carrier, it provides a wide range of high-performance, high-capacity, low-latency services in its markets in Latin America and throughout North America. GlobeNet addresses the wholesale market by offering a high-capacity subsea infrastructure and network density at the terrestrial level, where high-performance circuits can be installed for carriers often within accelerated timeframes in order to meet their increased bandwidth demands.

GlobeNet has deployed an Infinera Intelligent Transport Network across its entire US terrestrial backhaul network. The DTN-X offers GlobeNet the capacity to deliver 100Gb/s coherent transmission today via 500Gb/s super-channels, with a forward-scale design to support terabit super-channels in the future. The upgrade provides GlobeNet with a network that can deliver over 8Tb/s of transmission capacity (more capacity than the entire Internet in 2005, and enough to simultaneously stream over 1 million high-definition videos) on a single fiber. The DTN-X is designed to scale to support up to 12Tb/s of integrated OTN switching as well as Fast Shared Mesh Protection to provide rapid service protection even in the face of multiple fiber cuts.

“The global communications infrastructure is rapidly growing due to increasing demand for media-rich and Cloud-based services. With this network upgrade, GlobeNet demonstrates our commitment to reliably deliver the most advanced services available to our customers,” says president & chief operating officer Erick W. Contag. “Deployment of the Infinera Intelligent Transport Network enables GlobeNet to deliver advanced services today while at the same time prepare for the continued demand for capacity in the future,” he adds.  

“GlobeNet’s selection of an Infinera Intelligent Transport Network for its North America backbone underscores the value of our solutions to wholesale carriers operating mission-critical networks,” says Scott Chandler, Infinera’s vice president, North America sales. “The Infinera Intelligent Transport Network enables GlobeNet to automate, converge and simplify its optical transport network to reliably deliver advanced services.”
