Infinera announced today KDDI Corporation's (KDDI) selection of 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 robust network, providing multi-Terabit optical transmission to deliver 100 Gigabit per second (Gb/s) services across the country.
KDDI, an integrated Japanese telecommunications provider, owns and operates the Miyazaki – Okinawa Cable, an independent cable system that links to the Japan Information Highway cable system, stretching 10,300 km. KDDI's deployment of the Infinera DTN-X on this network will provide service providers 100 Gb/s services quickly and efficiently, on-demand.
“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 committed to offering the most innovative optical transport solutions globally,” said Andrew Bond-Webster, VP APAC Sales for Infinera. “We are pleased that KDDI has selected the DTN-X on this critical network. The DTN-X provides simple operations, scalable super-channel bandwidth and efficient network utilization. Infinera’s unique Instant Bandwidth™ is a key feature that helps our customers, like KDDI, win in the marketplace by delivering services faster than their competitors."
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 industry’s first 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.
