Australia Japan Cable deploys Infinera Intelligent Transport Network for submarine routes

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 Australia Japan Cable (AJC) - a consortium of service providers including Telstra, AT&T, NTT, Verizon and Softbank, and operator of the AJC cable system between Japan and Australia - has deployed the Infinera DTN-X packet optical transport networking platform across its submarine network.

The Infinera Intelligent Transport Network, featuring the DTN-X platform with soft-decision forward-error correction (SD FEC) super-channels and integrated OTN switching, enables AJC to significantly expand its cable’s capacity and rapidly deliver 10, 40 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) services, says the firm.

Australia Japan Cable offers connectivity and bandwidth, serving its customers, with a 12,700km submarine fiber-optic cable network from diverse landings in Australia, Guam and Japan.

Infinera provides AJC with the DTN-X platform, featuring long-haul super-channels with SD-FEC based on what is claimed to be the industry’s most widely deployed photonic integrated circuit and the FlexCoherent Processor, supporting up to 500Gb/s in a single line-card. The DTN-X platform is also equipped with 1Tb/s per slot to support higher-capacity 1Tb/s super-channel line-cards for future scaling needs.

“To meet the growing bandwidth needs of carrier, enterprise and ISP customers, AJC is significantly increasing the capacity of our network,” says Philip Murphy, head of engineering at Australia Japan Cable. “We selected an Infinera Intelligent Transport Network because it allowed us to scale capacity while simplifying operations,” he adds.

“The Infinera Intelligent Transport Network provides AJC a mesh network of 500Gb/s super-channels with soft-decision forward-error correction, ensuring the AJC network delivers increased network resiliency while delivering the capacity demanded by their customers,” says Andrew Bond Webster, VP sales at Infinera.
