SUNNVYALE, Calif. -- DANTE (Delivery of Advanced Network Technology to Europe), an operator of advanced networks for research and education, has selected Infinera (NASDAQ: INFN) for the pan-European GÉANT network it has built and operates on behalf of Europe’s national research and education networks (NRENs). Following a rigorous competitive bidding process, DANTE selected the new Infinera DTN-X platform to deliver the scalability, simplicity and efficiency demanded by researchers conducting some of the world’s most advanced scientific experiments.

With the Infinera DTN-X platform, GÉANT’s optical network will support multi-terabit transmission using the industry’s first commercially available 500 Gb/s long-haul optical super-channels, directly connecting 17 major European cities in 16 countries across 12,000 kilometers of fiber. Together with Europe's NRENs, GÉANT connects 40 million researchers and millions of students in over 8,000 institutions across 40 countries. Some of the world’s largest scientific institutions rely on GÉANT’s network, including CERN for its Large Hadron Collider (LHC) research, and the European Very Long Baseline Interferometry Network (EVN) for radio astronomy research.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
