SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- euNetworks has selected an Infinera (Nasdaq: INFN) Digital Optical Network for its pan-European network to enjoy the benefits of the speed and flexibility of Infinera’s digital architecture.

Headquartered in Frankfurt, Germany, euNetworks is one of Europe’s foremost providers of high-performance networking solutions with low latency and high availability. With a fiber-rich network connecting 15 major cities throughout the heart of western Europe, euNetworks focuses on offering high-quality services to a broad range of carriers, service providers and enterprises including financial institutions and media companies.

euNetworks chose Infinera because Infinera’s architecture offered speed, flexibility, scalability, and reliability that could not be achieved with traditional DWDM platforms. euNetworks Chief Technology Officer Albrecht Kraas said the Infinera system’s interchangeable tributary adapter modules (TAMs) enable euNetworks to meet customer demands quickly and easily for a range of services including wavelengths and Ethernet services. Based on large-scale photonic integrated circuits (PICs) integrating more than 60 optical devices into a pair of tiny chips, the Infinera DTN offers 100 Gigabits/second (Gb/s) of optical capacity on every line card. The scalability and reliability of the Infinera DTN will enable euNetworks to quickly accommodate growing customer demand throughout its network with its trademark low-latency, high-availability services.

Mr. Kraas said that Infinera’s digital switching capability will enable euNetworks to carry out its upgrade plans and turn many of euNetworks’ two-way network nodes into multi-directional nodes in the future simply and cost-effectively. “The flexibility of upgrading to two, three, or four-way nodes and the non-blocking switching of the Infinera system are far superior to DWDM solutions based on ROADMs where you need to make decisions in advance on an upgrade path and then you are locked into those decisions,” commented Mr. Kraas.
