Service Electric deploys Infinera Intelligent Transport Network in northeastern USA

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 cable operator Service Electric Cable TV & Communications has deployed the Infinera DTN platform across its new regional network serving customers in central and northeastern Pennsylvania and Northwestern New Jersey.

Service Electric selected an Infinera Intelligent Transport Network for the speed, simplicity and reliability that the DTN brings to its network, says Infinera. Service Electric provides residential and commercial cable and telecoms services to over 125,000 people in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. By deploying the DTN, it can quickly deliver services ranging from 155Mb/s to 100Gb/s, says Infinera. The platform’s operational simplicity allows the existing engineering team to manage the regional network without the need for extra engineering resources, adds the firm.

“We’re looking for intelligent solutions that simplify network operations and accelerate new service turn-up. This allows us to focus on growing our business,” says Service Electric’s president John M. Walson. “With one-time optical layer engineering coupled with intelligent software that automates many provisioning operations that were previously manual, the Infinera solution allows our engineers to turn up services quickly,” he adds.

“The Infinera DTN, enabled by photonic integrated circuits and integrated digital switching, allows operators to add capacity to their network quickly without complicated engineering, and the DTN's reliability means MSO [multi-system operator] engineers can spend more time generating new revenue rather than fixing problems in the network,” says Mike Kelly, Infinera’s VP of Cable Sales.

Infinera’s solutions for cable operators include the DTN (an intelligent transport platform for long-haul and metro core platform); the ATN metro edge platform (designed to provide scalable optical transport for access and commercial service aggregation); and the DTN-X platform (featuring 500Gb/s long-haul super-channels). The firm’s Intelligent Transport Network solutions are widely deployed by US MSOs in national backbone, regional, and metro applications.
