SUNNYVALE, Calif., – Infinera (NASDAQ: INFN), provider of Intelligent Transport Networks, and Australia Japan Cable (AJC) announced the completion of a multi-terabit upgrade to AJC’s network. This second and final phase of deployment completes a multi-terabit, high-capacity ring providing diverse fiber paths into cable landing stations in Australia, Guam and Japan, where Infinera DTN-X packet optical transport networking platforms enable an Intelligent Transport Network for AJC.

AJC offers connectivity and bandwidth to its customers across a 12,700 km submarine fiber optic cable network linking Australia, Guam and Japan. AJC is owned by some of the world’s leading service providers including Telstra, AT&T, NTT, Verizon and Softbank.

"This network upgrade with Infinera's Intelligent Transport Network has enabled the retirement of AJC’s original 10G transport equipment and the transfer of traffic to the more capable Infinera DTN-X platform," said Philip Murphy, Head of Engineering at AJC. ”The original AJC 10G technology served us well but the efficiency, flexibility and speed of deploying the Infinera DTN-X to deliver 100G allows AJC to be more responsive to our customers in terms of client interfaces and traffic switching.”

The Infinera Intelligent Transport Network, featuring the DTN-X packet optical networking platform, delivers the only commercially available single-card 500 gigabit per second (Gb/s) super-channel solution. This unique capability is made possible by Infinera's widely deployed 500 Gb/s photonic integrated circuits.

An Intelligent Transport Network is designed to enable AJC to easily scale to terabits of transmission capacity, integrating DWDM optical transmission and in the future up to 12 terabits per second of non-blocking OTN switching into a single platform. Infinera's intelligent software combined with this converged platform automates network operations to reduce both operational cost and service delivery times. The Infinera DTN-X is designed to scale without compromise enabling future upgrades to single-card terabit super-channels.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
