KDDI Selects Infinera's DTN-X

KDDI has selected Infinera's DTN-X platform to upgrade the Miyazaki – Okinawa Cable network in Japan.  The upgrade will enable 100G services across the country.

KDDI owns and operates the Miyazaki – Okinawa Cable, an independent cable system that links to the Japan Information Highway cable system, stretching 10,300 km.

Nisho Electronics is Infinera's local partner.

"The DTN-X provides us with an industry leading 100G transport solution that differentiates us in the marketplace,” said Shigeto Kiritani, General Manager and Head of International Network Department at KDDI. “By deploying the DTN-X we can rapidly increase the capacity of our system while enabling a robust network that is scalable and efficient. With Infinera’s Instant Bandwidth™ feature on the DTN-X, we are able to activate 100G services instantly on an as-needed basis.”
