Spain's IslaLink S.A. has deployed the Infinera DTN-X packet optical transport networking platform across its submarine network connecting the Balearic Islands and the Spanish mainland.
The Infinera Intelligent Transport Network enables IslaLink to rapidly deliver 10 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet services to other network operators.
"This submarine cable connection is a critical route for us requiring high capacity 100G technology with OTN switching and extensive Raman technology," said Ross Mullins, IslaLink COO. "The Infinera Intelligent Transport Network was an ideal solution for this network based on its super-channel technology, terabit switching capability, ease of operation and high reliability."
The DTN-X platform fetaures 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 Gb/s super-channels are engineered to enable IslaLink to scale to terabits of transmission capacity, integrating DWDM optical transmission in a single platform that are designed to be capable of supporting up to 12 terabits per second of non-blocking OTN switching as their traffic requirements grow in the future.
