Australia Japan Cable completes multi-terabit network upgrade with Infinera Intelligent Transport 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), has announced the completion of a multi-terabit upgrade to the network of Australia Japan Cable (AJC). This second and final phase of deployment completes a multi-terabit, high-capacity ring providing diverse fiber paths into cable landing stations in Australia, Guam and Japan, where Infinera DTN-X packet optical transport networking platforms enable an Intelligent Transport Network for AJC.

Owned by some of the world’s leading service providers, including Telstra, AT&T, NTT, Verizon and Softbank, AJC offers connectivity and bandwidth across a 12,700km submarine fiber-optic cable network linking Australia, Guam and Japan.

“This network upgrade with Infinera’s Intelligent Transport Network has enabled the retirement of AJC’s original 10G transport equipment and the transfer of traffic to the more capable Infinera DTN-X platform,” says AJC’s head of engineering Philip Murphy. “The original AJC 10G technology served us well but the efficiency, flexibility and speed of deploying the Infinera DTN-X to deliver 100G allows AJC to be more responsive to our customers in terms of client interfaces and traffic switching.”

Featuring the DTN-X packet optical networking platform, the Infinera Intelligent Transport Network delivers what is claimed to be the only commercially available single-card 500Gb/s super-channel solution, enabled by Infinera’s widely deployed 500Gb/s photonic integrated circuits. An Intelligent Transport Network is designed to enable AJC to easily scale to terabits of transmission capacity, integrating DWDM optical transmission and, in the future, up to 12 terabits per second of non-blocking OTN switching into a single platform. The firm’s intelligent software, combined with this converged platform, automates network operations to reduce both operational cost and service delivery times. The DTN-X is designed to scale without compromise, enabling future upgrades to single-card terabit super-channels.

“Now, AJC may rapidly deliver high-capacity services to their customers across a highly resilient network,” says VP sales Andrew Bond Webster.
