New Metro Product Naming Reflects Significant Integration Progress
Sr. Vice President, Head of Metro Business Group
Almost a year ago, Infinera expanded its offerings to include the technologies, portfolio and resources of Transmode. Since then, we have rapidly integrated the two companies’ product portfolios into a cohesive end-to-end optical portfolio with best-in-class products for the three major optical networking areas of metro, long-haul and data center interconnect. This integration includes direct coherent 100G interoperability between the TM-Series and the DTN-X XTC Series, packet-optical integration and a common network management system.
To reflect the great progress we’ve made in bringing our end-to-end portfolio closer together, we’ve made the decision to rename the TM-Series and TG-Series as the XTM Series and XTG Series respectively, and to rename our network manager TNM as DNA-M. This new naming highlights the tighter integration of the XTM Series with the DTN-X XTC Series, the integrated end-to-end management through Infinera Digital Network Administrator (DNA) and the commitment to the future of the XTM Series, XTG Series and DNA-M within the Infinera portfolio.
This is a small but very significant change that we’ve taken our time to announce to ensure we had made the progress required to justify the new naming. I’m delighted that we’ve achieved our goals and made the change. Keep watching Infinera for more announcements across our unique end-to-end portfolio!
