Greece's OTEGLOBE Deploys Infinera's DTN-X

OTEGLOBE, a leading international telecommunications provider in Greece and the Balkans, has deployed Infinera's DTN-X platform to upgrade its TransBalkan Network (TBN), which stretches from Greece to Germany across more than 8,000 km of fiber routes.

The Infinera DTN-X platform with 500 Gbps super channels enables OTEGLOBE to increase the available capacity on this network from 600 Gbps to more than 1 Tbps.  At the same time, OTEGLOBE’s network is able to support 10 Gbps, 40 Gbps and  100 Gbps services to its customers, international carriers, fixed and mobile operators, and multi-site organizations.

“We have been working with Infinera since 2008 using the DTN platform in our TBN network,” states Dr. Panagiota Bosdogianni, OTEGLOBE’s Technology Director. “During the past 4 years we took advantage of Infinera's solution for its flexibility, reliability and ease of use, allowing us to activate new 10 Gbps services in minutes. Being satisfied with our Infinera experience we selected the new DTN-X platform for our recent network upgrade, which has been successfully completed without disturbing existing traffic or our network operation procedures.”
