Deutsche Telekom to deploy Infinera DWDM

Deutsche Telekom will deploy Infinera's optical transport platform for its pan-European network. DT's pan-European network spans almost nine thousands kilometers and links Germany with most major European markets. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Infinera said DT selected its platform due to its PIC-based Digital Optical Networks architecture, including the new ILS2 (Infinera Line System 2) system. This system offers up to 160 DWDM channels in the C-band, extends optical reach to 2500 kilometers, and enables future capacity scalability up to 8 Tbps on a fiber.

"We selected the Infinera system to prepare for the next generation of international network operations and to help our customers to take advantage of this innovative and highly efficient solution with the most flexibility, quickest service provisioning and complete remote capabilities," said Wolf Pueschner, of Global Networks, Deutsche Telekom.
