Windstream Picks Infinera for 100G Long-Haul Express Network

Windstream is deploying the Infinera DTN-X platform, featuring 500 Gigabit per second (Gbps) super-channels, across its long-haul express network.

Windstream operates a nationwide fiber and IP network, covering 118,000 miles of fiber and 27 data center locations across the nation. As a cloud solutions provider, Windstream serves businesses with a wide range of cloud communication needs, in addition to offering an advanced data, voice and video network that provides customers low latency and reliable 100 Gigabit Ethernet services.

Infinera said the deployment enables an Intelligent Transport Network featuring single-card 500 Gbps FlexCoherent super-channels.  This provides Windstream with a solution integrating DWDM optical transmission and five terabit per second non-blocking OTN switching in a single platform.

"By deploying the Infinera Intelligent Transport Network, Windstream will significantly increase the capacity of our network infrastructure to meet the needs of our customers," said Randy Nicklas, executive vice president of engineering and chief technology officer for Windstream. "The DTN-X platform enables us to offer services that result in lower latency for mission critical applications while providing a network that is even more reliable and enables rapid provisioning of services."

“Windstream’s selection of the DTN-X reinforces the value of the Infinera Intelligent Transport Network architecture,” said Tom Fallon, Infinera CEO. “It’s clear that in addition to the need for scale and efficiency, network operators value the ability to turn time into a competitive weapon by delivering the high capacity services their customers want, quickly and more reliably than their competitors.”
