Infinera Intros Intelligent Transport
SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Infinera (NASDAQ: INFN) announced today the Infinera Intelligent Transport Network, an architecture for carriers to exploit the increasing demand for cloud-based services and data center connectivity as they advance into the Terabit Era. The Terabit Era envisions a highly connected global community sharing experiences and doing business at light speed, delivered by an infinite pool of intelligent bandwidth. The Intelligent Transport Network helps carriers use time as a weapon to increase revenues with reliable, differentiated services while reducing operating costs through scale, multi-layer convergence and automation.
In 2005 Infinera introduced the Digital Optical Network, an architecture based on the company’s breakthrough 100 Gigabit per second (Gb/s) Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs). By integrating PICs into the DTN platform Infinera was the first to converge Optical Transport Network (OTN) switching and wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) in the same chassis. Within 18 months of the DTN’s initial deployment Infinera led the highly competitive long-haul optical transport market in North America. The Intelligent Transport Network builds on the foundation of the Digital Optical Network, expanding the original vision as service providers and internet content providers prepare for the Terabit Era.
