TeliaSonera IC Deploys Infinera's Instant Bandwidth in North America

TeliaSonera International Carrier (TSIC), which operates a wholly owned fiber optic network connecting 200 Point of Presence (PoPs)) across Europe, North America and Asia, has selected Infinera's DTN-X platform with Instant Bandwidth capability for its North American network.  TeliaSonera International Carrier is the first to deploy the DTN-X with Instant Bandwidth.  Financial terms were not disclosed.

The DTN-X platform enables TSIC to offer its customers up to 100G bandwidth-on-demand across its North American fiber network, which spans 18,000 km and connects 35 PoPs in 23 cities.


"Infinera's DTN-X with Instant Bandwidth gives us a competitive edge enabling significantly shorter customer delivery times for 100G services and allows us to offer one of the most advanced and scalable networks in North America," said Erik Hallberg, President of TeliaSonera International Carrier.

"TeliaSonera International Carrier's selection of the DTN-X with Instant Bandwidth demonstrates the strength of the relationship that began with our DTN in the 10G era and is now entering the 100G era with the DTN-X," said Chris Champion, Infinera Vice President, EMEA sales. "As TSIC continues to grow their business, Instant Bandwidth on DTN-X provides a flexible infrastructure, one-click capacity and lower operational costs as they face increasing demands for bandwidth in a more competitive environment.

  • In July 2012, TeliaSonera International Carrier comfirmed deployment of a new 100G DWDM overlay network across Europe based on Nokia Siemens Networks' hiT7300 platform and its coherent CP-QPSK technology. The CP-QPSK modulation format is also used for TeliaSonera’s existing network to improve performance. Nokia Siemens Networks also provides a full set of care services including software maintenance, help desk as well as spare part management services. Financial terms were not disclosed.
