SEACOM to Deploy Infinera on Terrestrial Network

SEACOM has deployed the Infinera DTN-X platform across its terrestrial network providing services to the African continent. The Infinera Intelligent Transport Network, featuring the DTN-X packet optical transport networking platform, enables SEACOM to differentiate its services and manage costs as it scales network capabilities.

SEACOM owns and operates a high-capacity international network consisting of multiple submarine cable systems connecting Africa to Europe, Asia and the Middle East. SEACOM's submarine and terrestrial networks, stretching across 17,000 km, enable connectivity solutions that give carriers, network operators, and service providers the ability to expand and grow their operations across Africa and beyond.

Infinera said its platform provides SEACOM with the only commercially available single-card 500 Gbps FlexCoherent super-channel solution, which is based on Infinera's widely deployed photonic integrated circuits. These 500 Gbps super-channels enable SEACOM to scale to terabits of transmission capacity, integrating DWDM optical transmission in a single platform that is capable of supporting up to 12 terabits per second of non-blocking OTN switching as their traffic requirements grow in the future.
