Infinera Supplies DTN-X for MENA's trans-Egypt Terrestrial Network

Infinera announced the deployment of its DTN-X platform across Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Submarine Cable System's trans-Egypt terrestrial network.  The installation will allow MENA to provide wholesale carriers with a range of connectivity services from STM-1 to 100 Gbps and terabit capacity.

MENA, a subsidiary of Orascom Telecom Media and Technology, owns and operates a submarine telecommunications system connecting Europe to the Middle East and Southeast Asia.

“We deployed the Infinera Intelligent Transport Network on this crucial phase of our network because we were looking for a solution with features that meet MENA’s standards of highly reliable and advanced networks solutions," said Ahmed Khalaf, managing director of MENA. "The solution’s OTN switching capability provides the ability to offer our customers terabit capacity immediately upon deployment and the scalability realized from this network enables MENA to use time as a weapon to offer wholesale customers top-notch services.”
