Orange has deployed Infinera’s GX Series-based ICE6 coherent solution on its new AMITIE subsea cable, which is ready for service today from an end-to-end point of view and is designed to offer network operators robust transatlantic connectivity with ultra-low latency.
Orange selected Infinera’s solution to offer up to 400GbE services to its customers from the U.S. to France, and across its long-haul terrestrial backhaul network from Boston to New York and Le Porge to Bordeaux in France.
Orange powers fully resilient global connectivity capability along what is known as the world's busiest route, using two subsea mega cables, Dunant and AMITIE, to connect France and the U.S.
Lowering Orange’s energy use and carbon footprint
Orange selected ICE6 technology on Infinera’s GX Series Compact Modular Platform to help keep pace with future generations of optical transmission technologies while maintaining a high level of performance for the next 20 years. This deployment can also reduce Orange’s energy cost-per-megabit and minimise its carbon footprint.
Aurélien Vigano, VP International Transmission Network at Orange says: “We are pleased to integrate Infinera’s industry-leading technology for the first time on one of our key transatlantic routes and terrestrial backhaul. With this future-proof technology, Orange is well-positioned to continue to be a major player in the global wholesale market, developing our infrastructure to connect continents together and delivering a unique, high-performance, and robust solution to our customers.”
Adds Nick Walden, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales at Infinera: “Infinera is delighted to partner with Orange to deliver our innovative ICE6 solution across Orange’s critical subsea and terrestrial backhaul routes, offering network operators, wholesale carriers, and enterprise customers resilient and reliable global connectivity capability.”
