SSE Enterprise Telecoms has made what it calls its biggest network technology investment to date in the introduction of a new technology platform with Infinera, deploying its XTM Series to deliver low latency, flexibility and improved scalability.
The Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF) took to the podium at this year’s NGON and DCI Europe conference in Nice to reveal the results of its 2018 Software-Defined Networking (SDN) Transport Application Programming Interface (T-API) multi-vendor interoperability demonstration.
International network service provider RETN is deploying the Infinera XT-3300 and FlexILS to scale network capacity for its large international wholesale and enterprise customer base.
RETN operates a backbone network that spans 33,000km of fibre and connects 34 countries across Europe, Asia and North America. The provider has previously deployed the Infinera DTN-X, XT-500 and Cloud Xpress throughout Europe and Russia. The deployment of the Infinera XT-3300 and FLexILS connects Scandinavian countries to Russia across one of RETN’s main backbone routes.
SUNNYVALE, CALIFORNIA AND GERMANY – Infinera and Hetzner Online have announced the deployment of the Infinera XTS-3300 to extend Hetzner Online’s data centre business into Finland. The XTS-3300 is designed to be the industry’s easiest to use, compact, high-performance subsea network solution, enabling internet content providers (ICPs) like Hetzner Online to quickly deploy low-latency subsea networks.
Following a tough third quarter, optical transport provider Infinera has announced a restructuring plan that it hopes will return the company to profitability next year.
SUNNYVALE, CA – Infinera, the leading provider of Intelligent Transport Networks, announced that Netflix, the world’s leading internet television network, deployed the Infinera Cloud Xpress 2 to expand their delivery capacity for streaming videos. More than 100 million Netflix members in over 190 countries enjoy 125 million hours of streaming TV shows and movies per day.
Infinera has set two industry milestones for advanced coherent technologies that take the capacity of optical transport networks to the next level: 100Gbaud transmission and 1024-QAM (quadrature amplitude modulation).
Optical networking is becoming smarter. Guesstimates and offline calculations are on their way out; to be replaced by real-time computation and machine learning applied to ‘big data’ generated by the network itself, which can be used to optimise performance in ways that weren’t possible before.
At OFC 2017, Infinera (booth 3259) will demonstrate its latest packet-optical products for long-haul, metro and cloud networks, including those based on the company’s Infinite Capacity Engine, the first multi-terabit optoelectronic subsystem, delivering the next step function in transport networking performance.
Infinera has expanded its mobile fronthaul and backhaul product ranges to support the stringent performance requirements of mobile operators as their networks advance towards 5G. The new products include flexponders for mobile fronthaul and a new EMXP Access Unit for mobile backhaul, which extends the capabilities of the XTM Series platform.
As data demand ramps ever higher, researchers are looking to innovative amplifier designs to help transport a broader light spectrum through optical fibres, finds Andy Extance
Duncan Ellis shares his views about the increased focus on automation from network operators, and how the physical layer has so far stubbornly resisted the move
Switching off copper networks where fibre has been deployed is the end game, so why are so few operators doing it, wonders Pauline Rigby
With demand for fibre to the premises increasing, Keely Portway looks at the role training plays in ensuring installation skills remain available to meet this growing demand
