KDDI selects Infinera DTN-X with instant bandwidth for cable network in Japan

Feb 07, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- Infinera Corporation, a provider of digital optical networking systems, has announced that KDDI Corporation has selected the Infinera DTN-X platform with Instant Bandwidth via its local partner Nissho Electronics, to upgrade the Miyazaki - Okinawa Cable network in Japan.

The upgrade will offer a network, providing multi-Terabit optical transmission to deliver 100 Gigabit per second (Gb/s) services across the country.

"The DTN-X provides us with an industry leading 100G transport solution that differentiates us in the marketplace," said Shigeto Kiritani, General Manager and Head of International Network Department at KDDI. "By deploying the DTN-X we can rapidly increase the capacity of our system while enabling a robust network that is scalable and efficient. With Infinera's Instant Bandwidth feature on the DTN-X, we are able to activate 100G services instantly on an as-needed basis." Infinera is the first to deliver 500 Gb/s long-haul super-channels based on Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) and FlexCoherent Processor, scaling transport capacity without scaling operational complexity. Infinera's Instant Bandwidth is a software-activated 100G bandwidth delivery solution which enables a success-based business model for service providers allowing them to deploy 100G capacity the same day as they turn on the customer services.

Infinera's DTN-X also integrates 5 Tb/s of OTN switching combined with an intelligent control plane, enabling service providers to effectively manage revenue generating services while maximizing efficient use of their infrastructure.
