Infinera Unifies End-to-End Product Portfolio and Introduces New Platforms for Surging Metro 100G Market

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 6, 2015) - Infinera introduced a new unified Intelligent Transport Network product portfolio to address the surge in demand forecast for metro 100 gigabit per second (Gb/s) packet-optical networking solutions in 2016. Mobile, video and cloud-based services are driving a transformation of metro packet-optical networks from 10 Gb/s to 100 Gb/s, and industry analysts forecast a surge in demand for metro 100 Gb/s in 2016. The new portfolio unifies Infinera's long-haul DTN-X platforms with metro packet-optical solutions obtained through the acquisition of Transmode and introduces three new platforms to the DTN-X Family, enabling the company to address the entire wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) market from long-haul to metro access. IHS Research forecasts the end-to-end WDM market will top $15 billion by 2019.

New Unified Packet-Optical Portfolio
Infinera introduced new hardware and software capabilities that unify Infinera's award winning long-haul DTN-X Family with the Infinera TM-Series metro packet-optical solution. The TM-Series joined the Infinera Intelligent Transport Network portfolio through the company's acquisition of Transmode, a leading provider of metro packet-optical networks. New hardware modules for the DTN-X XTC Series enable direct 100 Gb/s WDM line-side interworking with the TM-Series. The TM-Series offers packet-optical transport for a rich set of metro applications including mobile fronthaul and backhaul, business Ethernet and triple play aggregation for cable and service provider networks. The new PT-Fabric for the TM-Series is designed to extend these capabilities to terabit switching and metro 100 Gb/s networking.

Infinera introduced new capabilities for the Infinera Digital Node Administrator (DNA) network management system, enabling unified control of the DTN-X Family and the TM-Series from metro access to long-haul core. The unified end-to-end portfolio is designed with extensive software defined network (SDN) programmability.

Two New Metro DTN-X Platforms: XTC-2 and XTC-2E
Infinera introduced two new platforms, the DTN-X XTC-2 and XTC-2E, to extend the scale, efficiency and simplicity of the DTN-X Family to metro core and regional network applications. The XTC-2 and XTC-2E converge 100 Gb/s coherent WDM transmission with...
