Infinera DTN-X Completes Osmine
SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Infinera (NASDAQ: INFN), a leading provider of Digital Optical Networks, announced today the test completion of Ericsson (formerly Telcordia Technologies) Operations Systems Modification for the Integration of Network Elements (OSMINE) Services process for the Infinera DTN-X platform and the latest release of the DTN platform. This was fulfilled for various products within the OSMINE process including inventory management via TIRKS®, fault management via NMA® System, and service provisioning via Transport Element Activation Manager. The test completion of Ericsson's OSMINE process is a significant event for Infinera. OSMINE certification enables U.S. Tier 1 service providers to successfully integrate Infinera's DTN-X and the latest release of DTN into Ericsson Operations Support Systems (OSS) ensuring the interoperability of Infinera platforms with existing systems and enabling service providers to accelerate their network deployment rapidly upon selection of Infinera. This is also a first for any network equipment vendor to accomplish an OTN-based OSMINE certification that includes ODUflex capabilities as the Infinera DTN-X and DTN are based on an advanced architecture that integrates WDM transport and OTN switching including ODUflex/ODU0 granularity in a single platform. "Completion of the Ericsson OSMINE process is an important achievement for network equipment suppliers looking to sell into the Tier 1 market," said Elisabetta Romano, Head of OSS, Business Unit Support Solutions, Ericsson. "This industry-recognized OSS network integration process validates that vendors like Infinera are ready to sell into the Tier 1 market and provides service providers with the confidence that the DTN-X and DTN platforms are network-ready solutions."
