Service providers now see widespread demand from enterprise organizations for managed optical services, whether involving wholly managed optical systems or individual wavelengths between data centers and regional offices.
By understanding the business case as well as the service levels required, Infinera enables service providers to bring a competitive product to the market that can scale, making the best use of available fiber. Infinera has worked with a number of service provider customers to deliver these requirements using technology that supports a reduced cost of ownership both to the end customer and the managed service provider.
The XTM Series multi-layer management suite, Enlighten™, is essential in ensuring that service providers can effectively plan, deploy and operate optical managed services, while lowering operational costs and complexity.
Infinera already works in partnership with service providers that offer optical managed services over their XTM Series network infrastructures. This partnership is a key advantage in supporting end-user requirements, ensuring that not only do the solutions fit today but also that future demands can be supported without technology refresh costs.
This partnership structure can also help to grow the service provider’s network and customer base, further reducing the total cost of ownership and ensuring that the end product can remain market-competitive.
