Whether you are building secure metro cloud fabrics by interconnecting data centers across a metro area or expanding your cloud around the globe, Infinera delivers open, programmable networks optimized for multi-terabit cloud scale. Our open solutions range from high-capacity metro data center interconnect (DCI) to long-haul and subsea Intelligent Transport Networks, all built on Infinera’s unique Infinite Capacity Engine technology.
Build Your Secure Metro Cloud Fabric with Cloud Xpress
The Cloud Xpress is optimized for scaling secure metro DCI networks with:
- High capacity with rapid scalability
- Simplicity and automation
- Space and power efficiency
- Built-in security with support for in-flight wire-rate data encryption
The newest Cloud Xpress model, the Infinera Cloud Xpress 2, hits the sweet spot for building a metro cloud. The Cloud Xpress 2 incorporates Infinera’s groundbreaking Infinite Capacity Engine (ICE4), delivering a 1.2 terabit per second (Tb/s) wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) super-channel in only one rack unit (1RU) and scaling to 27.6 Tb/s per fiber pair.
The Cloud Xpress 2 extends the simplicity and automation advantages that are built into every Cloud Xpress model, enabling cloud service providers to meet their operational efficiency goals. The Cloud Xpress family delivers a combination of plug-and-play reach and capacity that is superior to alternative solutions, simplifying network deployment, configuration and ongoing management.
Span the Globe with Infinera Intelligent Transport Networks
Leading internet content providers (ICPs) rely on Infinera’s Intelligent Transport Networks to create cloud scale global networks, connecting remote hyperscale data centers to each other and to metro data centers located close to their users. Key components of Infinera Intelligent Transport Networks for ICPs include:
- The DTN-X XT Series, the industry’s first small-form-factor, server-like meshponder WDM platforms, optimized for delivery of cloud scale network services over long-haul, regional and data center interconnect networks spanning hundreds and thousands of kilometers (km). The server-like XT Series meshponders seamlessly interoperate with the chassis-based DTN-X XTC Series switching platforms. The meshponder platforms include Infinera’s unique Instant Bandwidth technology, sliceable super-channels, in-flight wire-speed encryption and the Advanced Coherent Toolkit (ACT) for maximum capacity-reach performance.
- Infinera FlexILS™ flexible grid line system, the industry’s most widely-deployed flexible grid open optical line system. It enhances the scalability, flexibility and programmability of Intelligent Transport Networks and is fully open and interoperable with Infinera and third-party terminals.
- Infinera Intelligent Transport Networks support cloud automation that aligns to ICP operating models. Key elements of cloud automation include programmability via open application programming interfaces (APIs) and open information models, and advanced capabilities such as topology discovery, zero-touch provisioning and streaming telemetry.
