"Telxius, a telecommunications infrastructure company created by Telefonica, is using Infinera’s Instant Bandwidth software, to offer on-demand software-defined terabit capacity subsea service activation on its SAM-1 subsea network between the US, Brazil and Puerto Rico. These on-demand services are enabled by Infinera’s Instant Bandwidth software, activating capacity on the Intelligent Transport Network deployed by Telxius."

"The Telxius Intelligent Transport Network is based on Infinera's DTN-X XTC Series solution with support for up to Tbit/s transmission capacity. The XTC Series is designed to simplify network operations via high-capacity optical super-channels enabled by Infinera's large-scale photonic integrated circuits and integrated packet-aware optical transport network (OTN) switching, which also provides the flexibility to address the requirements of both subsea and terrestrial networks."
"The 25,000-km SAM-1 submarine network is part of a 65,000-km fiber-optic network footprint that Telxius manages. The undersea cable system supports capacity and IP services for service providers who want access to more than 300 million Telefónica subscribers. In addition to supporting terabit capacity and Optical Transport Network (OTN) switching, the DTN-X XTC Series platforms simplify network operations with Infinera's Instant Bandwidth capabilities, according to the systems house. 'Our customers demand rapid activation of high-capacity services,' added Carlos Dasi, CTO of Telxius Cable. 'Infinera's Intelligent Transport Network with Instant Bandwidth enables Telxius to offer highly differentiated, on-demand subsea terabit service activation to our customers.'"

"Germany-based Core-Backbone has deployed the Infinera Cloud Xpress 2 for high-capacity data centre interconnect (DCI) between Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Munich, Nuremberg and Vienna. Core-Backbone previously deployed the Infinera Cloud Xpress to provide 100Gbps services between Frankfurt and Nuremberg. With the Cloud Xpress 2, featuring the Infinera Infinite Capacity Engine, Core-Backbone will add multiple terabits per second (Tbps) of interconnection capacity between the aforementioned European cities."

"There were some challenges that Instant Bandwidth couldn’t solve, however, said Geoff Bennett, director of solutions and technology for Infinera. Even though data traffic keeps on growing, the distribution of that traffic can change: for example, a different connection being required when a bank moves its operations from London to Frankfurt. [...] Instant Network solves this problem by creating a bandwidth licence pool, with licences that are ready to be deployed anywhere in the customer’s network. The licences can be activated instantly the moment an invoice is issued for that capacity. Tied in with the bandwidth licence pool is the concept of movable licences. Service providers can now use software to move their bandwidth licences to different paths across the network as traffic conditions change. ‘All they need to do is return their licence to the pool, and then we don’t have a revenue recognition problem,’ Bennett explained. This reduces the operator’s capital expenses by reducing the amount of idle capacity provisioned specifically for network resiliency and makes it easier to respond to customer demands for new services."

"Shannon Williams, Infinera's director of sales, shares how she achieves work's many balancing acts -- between her role and the broader company, today and tomorrow's tech and more."
"Today, a new breed of cloud scale metro platforms is becoming available that provides the functionality required with low power, low latency, and high density. These platforms use 16QAM-based 200G-per-wavelength technology to drive power consumption down to as low as 20 W per 100G service within a plug-in card. This low power consumption enables high-capacity technology to be deployed in locations that could never support the power requirements of alternative platforms."
