The World's Fastest Provisioned Network

Infinera’s mission is to earn a superior return by enabling our customers to build and operate the world’s best optical networks, and we do that by delivering on our founding vision of enabling an infinite pool of intelligent bandwidth that the next communications infrastructure is built upon. A core tenet of the Infinera Intelligent Transport Network™ architecture is to allow customers to use time as a weapon to compete in the marketplace, enabled via super-channel technology.

On August 13, 2013, Infinera and DANTE showcased the fastest provisioned network in the world, as determined by the Guinness World Records, on the GÉANT backbone in Europe using a combination of super-channel technology and GMPLS automation. Guinness World Records verified the provisioning rate of 26.02 Tb/s per hour of optical capacity on a live network link between Amsterdam and Hamburg.
