UK's Network Rail Deploys Infinera DTN-X

Telef√≥nica UK, announced the deployment of the Infinera DTN-X packet optical transport networking platform across Network Rail’s railway infrastructure in the UK.

Network Rail owns, manages and develops Britain’s railway – the 20,000 miles of track, 40,000 bridges and viaducts, and the thousands of signals, level crossings and stations (the largest of which we also run).

Infinera said NRT is using the platform's "Instant Bandwidth" technology to deploy capacity with the click of a mouse. The DTN-X is designed to scale in the future to support up to 12 Tbps of integrated OTN switching as well as Fast Shared Mesh Protection to provide rapid service protection even in the face of multiple fiber cuts.
