Telia Carrier Lights 2nd West Coast Route with Infinera

Telia Carrier is adding a second low latency, high capacity route between Silicon Valley and Los Angeles, connecting the Internet Content superpowers of the Bay Area with the entertainment and media giants of Hollywood. The route uses the Infinera DTN-X platform.

In addition, Telia Carrier has lit up a 100G-enabled metro ring linking strategically important connection points in the San Francisco Bay Area. The Infinera TM-Series features multi-service capabilities including the ability to support MEF 2.0 certified Ethernet services, mobile fronthaul, wholesale bandwidth and metro aggregation. The solution offers a unified network management layer across DTN-X and TM-Series and programmable SDN application programming interfaces (APIs) to enable rapid service delivery.


Infinera noted that Telia Carrier now utilizes an end-to-end Infinera Intelligent Transport Network, from long-haul to metro, as the foundation of its leading ‘built from the ground-up’ network infrastructure. The company also cited a track record of supporting Telia Carrier with network ‘firsts.’ Telia Carrier was the first network operator in North America to deploy the Infinera DTN-X Family with Instant Bandwidth and the first network operator to test a terabit super-channel on a live network. Now Telia Carrier is the first announced provider to extend a nationwide DTN-X network by deploying Infinera’s TM-Series for Metro 100G at scale.

“The West Coast is a critical network segment in the U.S. and we are adding an additional route to further enhance customer experience in the region. The Infinera TM-Series makes the economics of 100G work. This metro solution brings with it the benefits of an integrated, low-power and space-saving design. More and more of our customers are doing the math and working out that now is the time to invest in 100G. And thanks to Infinera, we are ready for them,” said Mattias Fridström, Chief Technology Officer at Telia Carrier.

“Telia Carrier now has an end-to-end unified Infinera Intelligent Transport Network that is optimized for scale, operational simplicity, and to accelerate network service delivery to Telia Carrier’s customers,” said Bob Jandro, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales at Infinera. “Telia Carrier’s expanding deployment of Infinera’s end-to-end solutions underscores the value we bring to our customers across the globe.”
