STOCKHOLM -- TeliaSonera International Carrier and Infinera (NASDAQ:INFN), announced today the successful completion of the world’s first Terabit optical transmission based on 500 Gigabit per second (Gb/s) super-channels. The demonstration spanned 1105 KM of fiber between Los Angeles and San Jose, California marking a milestone in optical networking and offering a glimpse of what the network will be. The trial was conducted with elements of the new Infinera DTN-X platform and demonstrated twice the capacity of previous trials by adding a Terabit of capacity to a route carrying 300 Gb/s of production capacity.

“Our vision is to offer customers leading-edge services that efficiently scale their business. As 10 Gb/s services proliferate and 100 Gb/s router ports emerge, we are trialing advanced solutions that scale optical networks beyond 100 Gb/s” said Erik Hallberg, President at TeliaSonera International Carrier. “This Terabit demonstration with Infinera highlights our commitment to delivering an outstanding experience for the most demanding customers.”

“We are delighted to work with TeliaSonera International Carrier to validate the 500 Gb/s super-channel implementation that is the foundation of this Terabit demonstration,” said Tom Fallon, CEO of Infinera, “We share a common vision of delivering the scale, simplicity and agility needed to win in a highly competitive environment.”

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
