PIPE Deploys Infinera's DTN-X for Super-Channel Pacific Capacity

Australia-based PIPE Networks will deploy Infinera's new DTN-X platform with FlexCoherent super-channels on its PPC-1 submarine cable, a 6,900 km undersea system linking Sydney to Guam.

The DTN-X platform significantly increases capacity on PPC-1, delivering in excess of 3 Tbps. It will also allow PIPE to deploy Infinera’s 100 Gbps coherent wavelengths using high capacity super-channel transmission for the first time in the Asia-Pacific region.

This marks the first deployment of optical super-channels in the Asia-Pacific region.

In addition to the submarine deployment, the Infinera DTN-X platform was also selected for the company’s terrestrial network delivering 500 Gbps FlexCoherent super-channels to multiple, strategic data centers located in Sydney. Infinera's DTN-X supports 8 Terabits per second (Tbps) on a single fiber, which will significantly increase the capacity, scalability and resiliency of PIPE’s extensive metro fiber network in Sydney.
