SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Infinera (NASDAQ: INFN) announced today the availability of Infinera Instant Bandwidth™ on the DTN-X platform. Instant Bandwidth™ allows network operators to rapidly deploy bandwidth in 100 Gigabits per second (100G) increments without the typical long wait times associated with provisioning equipment, as well as engineering and activating services. With Infinera’s Instant Bandwidth™, network operators can instantly provision an additional 100G of network capacity with one-click to achieve a success based business model. Instant Bandwidth™ enables service providers to differentiate their services by shortening provisioning times and accelerating service delivery while simultaneously reducing time to revenue.

TeliaSonera International Carrier (TSIC) is the first to announce the selection and deployment of the Infinera DTN-X platform with Instant Bandwidth™ for their nationwide 100G U.S. network. TSIC can now turn up 100G of transport capacity via one-click software control enabling the rapid deployment of new services to their customers.

Transport network operators, like TSIC, are experiencing increased and variable demand for bandwidth from customers. Activating bandwidth services as soon as their customer demands it now becomes a competitive weapon. Infinera’s Instant Bandwidth™ is the industry’s first software-activated 100G bandwidth delivery solution that enables a success-based business model for service providers and lowers operational costs. Through this model, operators can immediately deploy 100G of incremental network capacity at the same time they activate the customer service. This capability enables an architecture where bandwidth can be provisioned on demand and potentially moved throughout the network in the future, as an example to respond to a natural disaster or scheduled events like popular sporting competitions. In contrast, conventional solutions result in higher operational expenses and longer lead times because they require multiple costly and time consuming activities for every 100G of network capacity. These activities include ordering, shipping, engineering, installation and provisioning taking many weeks or even months to fulfill. Instant Bandwidth™ reduces the time to revenue by closing the gap between network infrastructure investment and customer service activation and enables the deployment of bandwidth with a single click.
