SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Infinera (Nasdaq: INFN) has appointed Dirk Corsus as vice president of systems engineering to provide further experience and leadership to the company’s systems engineering team. Mr. Corsus brings more than 20 years of global experience in engineering and product development, with particular expertise in optical networking and telecommunications switching environments.

Mr. Corsus spent 23 years with Alcatel and Alcatel Lucent managing global engineering teams, and has been involved with product launches including optical, routing, and access products. He has deep experience with the design and implementation of carrier-class systems to meet the highest standards of service providers worldwide. Among his positions at Alcatel, Mr. Corsus served as Vice President of Engineering and Product Solutions for the Fiber to the User Group, where he was responsible for the development and launch of an Ethernet-centric access solution which rapidly became a market leading business with a worldwide customer list including many of the world’s largest telecom companies.

“Infinera’s photonic integration technology has allowed us to create the densest digital optical transport platform, bringing significant operating expense savings for our customers while reducing carbon footprint,” Mr. Corsus commented. “Whereas only a few years ago, systems showed up in the market that moved a few hundreds of Gigabit of traffic around in each rack, our upcoming next generation of PIC technology will be designed to scale to multiple Terabits per rack and enable higher speed interfaces such as 100 Gigabit Ethernet.”
