SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Infinera (NASDAQ: INFN), provider of Intelligent Transport Networks, and XO Communications (XO) announced the deployment of the Infinera DTN-X packet optical transport networking platform capable of delivering high bandwidth network services up to 100G across the XO nationwide network. The multi-terabit Infinera DTN-X platform also enables XO to support high-performance cloud, data and video applications nationally.

With the Infinera DTN-X platform, XO benefits from the industry's only commercially available single-card 500 gigabit per second (Gb/s) FlexCoherent super-channel solution. These 500 Gb/s super-channels enable XO to rapidly deliver more than nine terabits per second (Tb/s) of transmission capacity on a single fiber. To put that in perspective, nine Tb/s is more capacity than the entire Internet in 2005, and is enough bandwidth to simultaneously stream over one million high definition videos bi-directionally.

The high capacity super-channels are enabled by 500 Gb/s photonic integrated circuits (PICs) developed and fabricated by Infinera -- the only supplier delivering 500 Gb/s of transmission capacity from a single line card today. PICs enable the DTN-X platform to integrate wavelength division multiplexing super-channel transmission with up to 12 Tb/s of non-blocking optical transport network switching, providing seamless scaling as traffic requirements grow in the future. The DTN-X also features an SDN-ready application programming interface that enables the automation of network operations to reduce both operational cost and service delivery times.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
