Infinera's DTN-X platform is designed for global network operators facing increasing bandwidth demands driven by video, high speed data and cloud-based services. For these operators the DTN-X provides a simple, scalable, and efficient solution that integrates five Terabits of OTN switching capacity with market-leading 100G transport capacity. The DTN-X enables optical transport network operators to efficiently deploy 100G wavelengths by delivering the world's first and only commercially available 500G long-haul super-channels. Long-haul super-channels enable operators to scale transport capacity without scaling operational complexity thereby lowering total cost of ownership for multi-Terabit transport networks.
