Infinera Unifies its Long-Haul and Metro Optical Transport Portfolio

Infinera unveiled new hardware and software capabilities that unify its flagship, long-haul DTN-X platforms with the metro packet-optical solutions obtained through its acquisition of Transmode.

The rollout, which comes just weeks after the completion of the Transmode acquisition, is intended to address the surge in demand forecast for metro 100 gigabit per second (Gbps) packet-optical networking solutions in 2016.

Some highlights:

  • New hardware modules for the DTN-X XTC Series - enable direct 100 Gbps WDM line-side interworking with the Transmode TM-Series metro packet/optical platforms. The TM-Series offers packet-optical transport for a rich set of metro applications including mobile fronthaul and backhaul, business Ethernet and triple play aggregation for cable and service provider networks. The new PT-Fabric for the TM-Series is designed to extend these capabilities to terabit switching and metro 100 Gbps networking.
  • New capabilities for the Infinera Digital Node Administrator (DNA) network management system - enable unified control of the DTN-X Family and the TM-Series from metro access to long-haul core. 
  • New Metro DTN-X Platforms - XTC-2 and XTC-2E for metro core and regional network applications. The XTC-2 and XTC-2E converge 100 Gbps coherent WDM transmission with packet-aware OTN switching in a platform with the small footprint and low power consumption demanded by metro and regional networks. All platforms in the XTC Series support the oPIC-100, Infinera's next-generation photonic integrated circuit (PIC) to extend the space, performance and reliability benefits of PICs from the long-haul to the metro.
  • New Long-Haul DTN-X Platform XT-500 - a two rack unit, stackable platform based on Infinera's PIC-500, delivering 500 Gbps WDM super-channels and designed for rapid deployment of high bandwidth long-haul data center interconnection. The XT-500 seamlessly integrates with the Infinera FlexILS Line System to support fixed and flexible grid for extended reach and increased fiber efficiency. Applications for the XT-500 include point-to-point interconnect and within optically switched mesh network topologies using reconfigurable optical add drop multiplexers (ROADMs). Managed as a part of a DTN-X node, the XT-500 supports Infinera's Instant Bandwidth to rapidly deploy additional bandwidth in 100 Gbps increments with a few clicks of a mouse.

"Our vision is to enable an infinite pool of intelligent bandwidth that the next communications infrastructure is built upon. Infinera's new unified Intelligent Transport Network portfolio is engineered to provide network operators a precise set of tools to scale long-haul, datacenter interconnect and metro networks," said Tom Fallon, CEO at Infinera. "As network operators transform their networks to 100 Gb/s, Infinera's unified portfolio offers right-sized, application-specific platforms that scale bandwidth, accelerate service innovation and simplify network operations."

The XTC-2, XTC-2E, XT-500, unified portfolio hardware and software features are planned for general availability in Q4 2015.
