SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Infinera (NASDAQ: INFN), a US-based leading provider of digital optical communications systems, has established its Russian headquarters in Moscow. Infinera Russia will focus on marketing, sales operations and work closely with local partners to expand the company’s manufacturing presence and capabilities in the region. The new entity has been created to support telecom carriers and service providers in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) as Infinera increases its activities globally.

Recently, RETN, a leading Russian wholesale telecom carrier and Infinera customer since 2008, upgraded its pan-European optical network with the latest generation of the Infinera Line System (ILS). RETN specializes in connectivity within Russia and between major international traffic exchange points. Since 2002, RETN has dynamically expanded, upgrading capacity and increasing the number of Points of Presence (POPs). Today, RETN’s network is one of the largest in Russia, with a network, extending from Moscow to London, north and south, and directly connected to more than 800 international and domestic carriers.

“Russian carriers see the value of Infinera’s unique technology based on photonic integration,” said Alexey Popov, General Director for Infinera Russia. “Launching this new entity in Moscow reaffirms our commitment to the region and to customers like RETN. We also believe that it will better enable carriers in this country to benefit from an Infinera Digital Optical Network.”
