Infinera Corporation: Infinera Powers Cloud Scale Networks with New DTN-X Platforms

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 17, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Infinera, a provider of
Intelligent Transport Networks, announced a number of new platforms within
the award winning DTN-X Family designed to power cloud scale networks. With
this announcement, Infinera is ushering in the next generation of Intelligent
Transport Network architecture that blends the best of web scale technologies
with the best of telco-grade technologies, yielding over 50 percent better
total cost of ownership (TCO) over conventional networks. Infinera announced
two new platforms, the XT-3300 and the XT-3600 meshponders, as well as
significant upgrades to the XTC-4 and XTC-10 Packet Optical Transport Node
(P-OTN) platforms. Infinera also announced the MTC-6 FlexILS chassis and
20-port super-channel Flexible Grid Reconfigurable Optical Add-Drop
Multiplexer (FlexROADM), a key element within one of the most widely deployed
flexible grid open line systems.

New cloud-based applications such as the Internet of Things (IoT), Network
Function Virtualization (NFV), XaaS, video and virtual reality are driving a
growing amount of bandwidth across service provider subsea, long-haul, metro
and data center interconnect (DCI) networks. As cloud infrastructure expands
and networks migrate to a new architecture of Layer C (Cloud Services) and
Layer T (Intelligent Transport), service providers need their Layer T
networks to adapt to new traffic flows and to support smooth scale-out
expansion. These cloud scale networks allow service providers to efficiently
address both large N x 100 gigabit Ethernet (GbE) linear connectivity
requirements driven by web scale operators as well as the diverse mesh
connectivity requirements driven by more traditional telco enterprise and
residential customers. To meet these requirements, service providers need
cloud scale networks that are:

* Scalable and sliceable - multi-carrier super-channel technology delivering
massive bandwidth per optical engine along with the ability to use software
defined networking (SDN) control to independently tune, modulate and route
each wavelength
* Integrated and disaggregated - integrated dense wavelength division
multiplexing (DWDM) and switching platforms working in harmony with
disaggregated server-like platforms to build the most cost effective
networks possible
* Secure and open - completely open and programmable solutions while
featuring in-flight line-rate encryption and other critical security
features

The DTN-X Family platforms now integrate the ground-breaking Infinera Infinite
Capacity Engine featuring the Advanced Coherent Toolkit. The new server-like
DTN-X XT-3300 and XT-3600 are the industry's first meshponder platforms,
which combine sliceable photonics and muxponder functionality to deliver
hyper-scalability up to 2.4 terabits per second (Tb/s) along with
fine-grained granularity for optical mesh networks. The server-like small
form factor meshponder platforms, developed from experiences in the web scale
market, seamlessly interoperate with the chassis-based DTN-X XTC switching
platforms.

The Infinera DTN-X XTC-4 and XTC-10 platforms have been upgraded to support
1.2 Tb/s per slot and more than double the switching and transmission
capacity through non-disruptive, in-service upgrades. The new DWDM modules,
powered by the Infinera Infinite Capacity Engine, co-exist with the deployed
modules thereby offering complete investment protection. The DTN-X XTC now
offers up to 12 Tb/s of non-blocking switching capacity and unlike
competitive systems, have no tradeoffs between client side tributary capacity
and line side capacity.

The Infinera FlexILS open line system, which supports over 50 Tb/s of fiber
capacity, takes super-channels from the DTN-X platforms and routes
wavelengths to the appropriate destination for flexible optical mesh
networking. The new 20-port super-channel FlexROADM supports flexible grid
super-channels with single-channel granularity and full CDC (colorless,
directionless, contentionless) functionality while using six times fewer
fibers than conventional ROADMs. FlexILS now includes the new compact MTC-6
chassis and is fully open and interoperable with Infinera and third-party
terminals.

All of the new capabilities in the FlexILS and DTN-X Family are controlled by
the Xceed Software Suite and managed by Infinera's Digital Network
Administrator (DNA). This comprehensive software portfolio enables service
providers to simply and easily optimize the network including keeping traffic
at the optical layer longer and only grooming and switching when necessary.

By bringing these capabilities into the next generation unified Intelligent
Transport Network and supporting the migration to cloud scale networks,
service providers can dramatically decrease TCO by over 50 percent through
reduced equipment, power and space consumption.

"Windstream is one of the fastest growing providers of advanced network
communications in the US," said Buddy Bayer, Senior Vice President, Transport
Engineering at Windstream. "As we expand our fiber transport network routes
in the US, we rely on networking solutions that can be easily upgraded like
the FlexILS which provides an open line system and the new 20 port ROADM
capabilities. With an existing DTN-X deployment, we look forward to the new
multi-terabit Infinite Capacity Engine based modules and platforms to power
Windstream's cloud scale network."

"As we expand and build our long-haul and metro networks serving over 1,200
customers in 80 countries, we look to partner with Infinera to operate highly
scalable and flexible transport networks," said Mattias Fridström, Chief
Evangelist at Telia Carrier. "We are delighted with the array of products
Infinera has announced. There are excellent solutions that can address the
tremendous growth in demand for 100G services driven by our Internet Content
Provider customers. In addition, the seamless upgrades to higher capacity in
the DTN-X XTC platforms protect the investments we've already made in our
network."

"Infinera is transforming transport networks to be open and cloud scale," said
Dr. Dave Welch, Infinera Co-founder and President. "We are bringing the power
of web scale to service provider networking with the unified architecture of
meshponders and multi-terabit switches managed by a common, open control
layer. The upgraded DTN-X Family and the new CDC FlexROADM deliver a new
architecture that enables network operators to cost effectively provide
scalable and secure end-user services. This architecture demonstrates
Infinera's commitment to innovation to enable our customers to build the next
generation cloud scale infrastructure."

"Infinera continues to innovate in optical networking with industry firsts,"
said Tim Doiron, Principal Analyst, Intelligent Networking, at ACG Research.
"The Infinite Capacity Engine integrated into the DTN-X Family brings massive
multi-terabit capacity in an industry leading footprint to build cloud scale
networks. With fully tunable, programmable, 100 Gigabit bandwidth slices and
SDN control, service providers can dynamically and instantly modify their
networks to match bandwidth demands with business imperatives. The Infinite
Capacity Engine's multi-terabit wire-speed Layer 1 encryption technology
provides an important and scalable layer of network security for service
providers."

The MTC-6 FlexILS open line system chassis is shipping now. The XT-3300
platform is planned for availability in the first quarter of 2017 with the
other platforms to follow starting in the second quarter of 2017.
