Sunnyvale, Calif., – Aug. 19, 2013Infinera (NASDAQ: INFN), a leading provider of Intelligent Transport Networks, announced today that Dacom Crossing, a Korean provider of international IP communications, has deployed the Infinera DTN-X packet optical networking platform delivering a fully integrated network connecting Seoul, the terrestrial backhaul network and the EAC Korea landing station. The Infinera Intelligent Transport Network, featuring the DTN-X, enables Dacom Crossing to offer 10, 40 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) services in addition to existing International Private Lease Circuit services up to 10 Gigabit per second (Gb/s). The Infinera Intelligent Transport Network allow Dacom Crossing to use time as a weapon to increase revenues with highly reliable, differentiated services while reducing operating costs through scale, multi-layer convergence and automation. With Infinera Instant Bandwidth™, Dacom Crossing further benefits from the rapid deployment of bandwidth in 100 Gb/s increments on demand.

"The DTN-X allows us to scale our network as needed based on customer demand, while providing unprecedented speed and reliability," said JH Kim, Dacom Crossing CEO. "Coupled with the Instant Bandwidth feature, which allows us to deploy increments of 100G services, Infinera’s solutions enable differentiation by shortening provisioning times, accelerating service delivery, and reducing time to revenue." 

Dacom Crossing provides wholesale services to Tier One carriers, ISP’s and content providers, and is the first Korean network operator to deploy Infinera's solutions. Dacom Crossing is deploying an Intelligent Transport Network enabled by the industry’s only commercially available 500 Gb/s coherent super-channel transmission. The Infinera DTN-X is designed to scale without compromise to provide for future upgrades to terabit super-channels and Terabit Ethernet.

"Dacom Crossing is now providing South Korea with its first Intelligent Transport Network, featuring the industry's only solution designed with photonic integrated circuits," said Andrew Bond-Webster, vice president APAC Sales for Infinera. "Our solution's ability to quickly and reliably provide network services on demand, with the ability to scale in the most efficient manner, really stood out against our competitors."

The Infinera DTN-X is designed to scale without compromise to enable future upgrades to terabit super-channels and Terabit Ethernet. The DTN-X converges five Terabits of non-blocking OTN switching into the same platform, resulting in more efficient network utilization when compared to conventional WDM architectures. Intelligent software combined with this converged platform automates manual operations to lower operational costs and enable faster service delivery.
