TeliaSonera Tests Infinera's Terabit Optical Transport

TeliaSonera International Carrier has completed a test of Infinera's Terabit optical transmission based on 500 Gbps super-channels. The demonstration spanned 1,105 kilometers of fiber between Los Angeles and San Jose, California and used elements of the new Infinera DTN-X platform. The test added a terabit of capacity to a route carrying 300 Gb/s of production capacity.

“Our vision is to offer customers leading-edge services that efficiently scale their business. As 10 Gb/s services proliferate and 100 Gb/s router ports emerge, we are trialing advanced solutions that scale optical networks beyond 100 Gb/s," said Erik Hallberg, President at TeliaSonera International Carrier. “This Terabit demonstration with Infinera highlights our commitment to delivering an outstanding experience for the most demanding customers."
