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.”

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.
