Infinera Lands Windstream DWDM Buildout
SUNNYVALE, Calif., — Infinera, provider of Intelligent Transport Networks, and Windstream, a provider of advanced network communications, are deploying the Infinera DTN-X platform, featuring 500 Gigabit per second super-channels, across Windstream's long-haul express network. The Infinera Intelligent Transport Network enables Windstream to differentiate their services, protect their investment, and lower operational expense as they scale their network.
Windstream operates a nationwide fiber and IP network, covering 118,000 miles of fiber and 27 data center locations across the nation. As a cloud solutions provider, Windstream serves businesses with a wide range of cloud communication needs, in addition to offering an advanced data, voice, and video network that provides customers low latency and reliable 100 Gigabit Ethernet services.
Windstream benefits from an Infinera Intelligent Transport Network featuring the industry's only commercially available single-card 500 Gbits/s FlexCoherent super-channels based on Infinera's widely deployed photonic integrated circuits. This provides Windstream with a solution integrating DWDM optical transmission and five terabit per second non-blocking OTN switching in a single platform. Infinera's intelligent software combined with this converged platform automates manual operations to lower operational costs and enable faster service delivery. The Infinera DTN-X is designed with 1 terabit per slot, enabling it to scale without compromise to single-card terabit super-channels and Terabit Ethernet in the future.
