Infinera's DTN-X packet optical transport networking platform has been deployed across the Australia Japan Cable (AJC), which spans 12,700 km and offers diverse landings in Australia, Guam and Japan. AJC is composed of a consortium of leading service providers including Telstra, AT&T, NTT, Verizon and Softbank.
Infinera said the Intelligent Transport Network, featuring the DTN-X platform with SD FEC super-channels and integrated OTN switching, enables AJC to significantly expand their cable’s capacity and rapidly deliver 10, 40 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) services. Infinera's DTN-X platform delivers long haul super-channels with SD-FEC based on its Photonic Integrated Circuit and the FlexCoherent Processor, supporting up to 500 Gbps in a single line card. The DTN-X platform is also equipped with 1 Tbps per slot to support higher capacity 1 Tbps super-channel line cards for future scaling needs.
"To meet the growing bandwidth needs of carrier, enterprise and ISP customers, AJC is significantly increasing the capacity of our network," said Philip Murphy, Head of Engineering at Australia Japan Cable. "We selected an Infinera Intelligent Transport Network because it allowed us to scale capacity while simplifying operations.”
