SUNNYVALE, Calif. and LONDON -- Infinera (NASDAQ: INFN), a leading providerof Digital Optical Networks, and Interoute, owner of Europe’s largest cloud services platform,today announced Interoute’s 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) services using the Infinera DTN.Interoute, whose pan-European network was among the first in Europe to deploy Infinera’s DTNfour years ago, is the first to offer the most broadly available 100 GbE services in Europe,another demonstration of Interoute’s constant drive and focus on innovation in the informationand communication technology marketplace.

Interoute’s network is one of the most extensive in Europe, spanning across 60,000 kilometersof lit fiber, connecting 30 countries in 102 cities. Interoute serves enterprises and telecomoperators worldwide from Stockholm to Sicily, Moscow to Madrid, London to Istanbul, withvoice, video, computing and high capacity international data bandwidth and networkinfrastructure. Interoute is at the forefront of new technology development and adoption, and asone of the owner and operators of Europe’s major backbone, the benefits of Interoute’s dynamicand market-leading approach are instantly passed on to its customer.

By working with Infinera and integrating 100 GbE service support on the DTN into Interoute’shigh availability, highly meshed and fully diverse network, Interoute can quickly and efficientlyserve customers’ growing appetite for bandwidth. Many carriers and enterprises are alreadyusing multiple 10 Gigabit per second (Gb/s) services which can become complex andexpensive. With the option of 100 GbE services, this reduces both the complexities andexpense, and provides higher bandwidth efficiency and throughput for data networks, and lowercost per Gb/s.

The Infinera DTN platform, built with photonic integrated circuits (PICs), offers Interouteunmatched operational simplicity and scalability. By deploying a PIC-based solution, Interoutedirectly benefits from reduced size, power, costs and improved reliability, thereby resulting inlower capital and operational expenses while operating a more flexible optical network.

“Interoute and Infinera have worked together to integrate industry leading technology for anumber of years,” said Matthew Finnie, CTO at Interoute. “The ability to adapt our existingInfinera DTN network to 100 GbE next-generation services demonstrates the inherent value ofthe Infinera architecture. It protects our investment for the future services that we need toprovide our customers to stay competitive.”
