Infinera Introduces Instant Bandwidth™ on DTN-X Enabling Software Activation of 100G

Sunnyvale, CA – Nov. 12, 2012 – 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.

“2012 has been the ‘year of 100G:’ interest in 100G is broad-based and deployments are outpacing our market projections,” said Dana Cooperson, VP Network Infrastructure at Ovum. “Operators need a way to keep pace with uncertain network traffic growth without under or over provisioning infrastructure capacity. Network operators want to deploy capacity at 100G incrementally while minimizing and balancing capex and opex. This success-based business approach allows operators to rapidly deploy capacity as customer demand arises and differentiate their offering in a highly competitive market. Infinera’s Instant Bandwidth™ is a very interesting approach to an important 100G business requirement.” The Instant Bandwidth™ solution is a combination of new hardware, software and operational innovation from Infinera. The hardware includes new line cards supporting 500G long-haul super-channels with 100G activated initially. This solution features Infinera’s 500G Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) and FlexCoherent™ processor that delivers record-breaking Polarization Mode Dispersion (PMD) performance overcoming some of the worst fiber impairments over critical parts of operators networks. All of these features are enabled for the initial 100G of capacity on the line card that can progressively increase to 500G with simple one-click software activation delivered using the enhanced Infinera DNA network management system. The DTN-X integrates 5 Terabits of OTN switching per bay in the same platform and is automated by an intelligent standards based control plane. These technologies provide a foundation for the Instant Bandwidth™ solution and result in flexible infrastructure bandwidth with better wavelength utilization, fewer fiber connections, less space and less power and overall lower operational costs when compared to conventional optical transport architectures.

“Instant Bandwidth on the DTN-X creates more opportunities for our customers to win by using time as a weapon to compete and respond to increasingly variable demands to flexibly grow and manage network capacity,” said Dave Welch, Infinera Co-founder, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer. “Software activated bandwidth changes the business model and the economics of transport networking, accelerating time to revenue for operators while boosting their competitiveness.” Infinera started shipping the DTN-X platform earlier this year and the Instant Bandwidth™ solution for it is now available.

About Infinera Infinera specializes in Digital Optical Networking systems that are designed to continually improve the economics of optical networking by combining the speed of optics with the simplicity of digital. Infinera is unique in its use of breakthrough semiconductor technology: Large Scale Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC). Infinera's systems leverage PIC technology to provide customers with a service-ready architecture that enables faster time-to-revenue and greater profitability through network efficiency and the ability to rapidly deliver differentiated services without reengineering their optical infrastructure.
