Infinera Automates Multi-layer Transport Networks
SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Infinera (NASDAQ: INFN), provider of Intelligent Transport Networks, introduced today new solutions for service providers planning to simplify the operation of multi-layer transport networks through increased automation. Multi-layer transport networks blend the efficiency of digital switching with the scale of optical switching to create the communication foundation of cloud-based services and the Internet. The new solution includes the industry’s first super-channel FlexROADM (reconfigurable optical add drop multiplexer), the first standards based multi-layer control plane for spectrum switched optical networks (SSON) and the first 500 gigabit per second (Gb/s) flexible-grid super-channels. The combination of the Infinera DTN-X packet optical transport networking platform with these new solutions uniquely enables multi-layer automation of Intelligent Transport Networks.
“At Telefonica I+D we continuously explore innovative technologies to help create the communication services of the future,” said Juan Fernandez-Palacios at Telefonica I+D lab. “Our successful testing of the innovative FlexROADM helped shape the solution Infinera is announcing today. This is one example of how Telefonica I+D collaborates with technology innovators like Infinera to shape the next generation of optical networks.”
