Business Ethernet

Ethernet is becoming the transport technology of choice by enterprises for a rapidly growing proportion of their services, such as local area network (LAN) interconnection, high-speed Internet access, remote backup and secure data delivery.

Infinera addresses the increase in Ethernet-based services with a range of packet-optical solutions. Our Ethernet and Ethernet-aware capabilities ensure that advanced business Ethernet solutions are easily deployable by the network operator or enterprise, including service level agreement (SLA) monitoring, bandwidth profiling and quality of service (QoS) management.

Infinera’s Packet-Optical Technology architecture offers unprecedented cost-efficiency in transport networks, ultra-low latency and superior synchronization.

Infinera’s packet-optical offerings are ideal for business Ethernet solutions as they are Carrier Ethernet 2.0-certified and support multiple service types, such as Ethernet, Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH)/Synchronous Optical Networking (SONET) and Fibre Channel in one cost-efficient solution, even over a single wavelength. In this way, both new Ethernet-based services and legacy SDH/SONET services can be supported, creating a smoother transition from legacy services to an Ethernet/IP-based network.

In the iAccess solution, based on the XTM Series platform, the deployment of business Ethernet applications is addressed, allowing scalable operation and easy installation, configuration and management. Infinera’s business Ethernet solution brings flexibility by supporting coarse wavelength-division multiplexing (CWDM) and dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM), single fiber and fiber pair, and a selection of line rates to choose from. In addition, pluggable optics present an affordable optical transport solution for all enterprises – large or small.
