"Internet exchange (IX) is the heart of the Internet, the place where the Internet actually gets connected. Increasingly, IX facilities are also the focal points for content delivery, cloud-based service delivery and enterprise hybrid cloud architectures, attracting new customers and driving new interconnection models. This rapid change in the Internet exchange ecosystem is driving explosive growth in bandwidth between IX sites as well as the demand for massively scalable metro optical networks."

"Hanoi Telecom extended its existing Infinera TM-Series metro network with the vendor's DTN-X technology for its backbone connecting Ho Chi Minh City and Vung Tau. The new technology is allowing Hanoi Telecom to deploy 500Gbps super-channels - a first for the Vietnam market. Infinera's Instant Bandwidth is also being used to allow optical capacity to be easily software-activated in 100Gbps increments."
"Vietnamese mobile operator Hanoi Telecom (HTC) has selected Infinera to extend its existing Infinera TM-Series metro network with the DTN-X Family for its backbone connecting Ho Chi Minh City and Vung Tau. Infinera won the contract via its local partner, Nissho Electronics Vietnam. The Infinera DTN-X XTC Series enables HTC to deliver 500Gbps super-channels and supports a forward-scale design to provide multi-terabit super-channels in the future."

"HTC has extended its existing Infinera TM-Series metro network with the DTN-X Family for its backbone connecting Ho Chi Minh City and Vung Tau. HTC is the first operator in Vietnam to use the DTN-X XTC Series and this is the first time any network in Vietnam is deploying 500 gigabits per second (Gb/s) super-channels. With this deployment, HTC is using Infinera's Instant Bandwidth which enables optical capacity to be software-activated in 100 Gb/s increments with the click of a mouse."
"The Infinera DTN-X XTC Series enables HTC to deliver 500 Gbps super-channels and supports a forward-scale design to provide multi-terabit super-channels in the future. The high capacity channels use photonic integrated circuits (PICs) developed and fabricated by Infinera. The DTN-X XTC Series integrates wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) super-channel transmission with up to 12 Tbps of optical transport network (OTN)."
"Infinera says it has supplied its elements of its DTN-X family of packet-optical transport systems to wireless operator Hanoi Telecom Corp. (HTC). HTC will pair the DTN-X systems with its already fielded Infinera TM-Series metro network gear to connect Ho Chi Minh City and Vung Tau [...] Integrating the metro and core backbone networks under the Infinera umbrella gives HTC a unified network under control of a common management system. The result is simplified operations and accelerated service innovation, Infinera asserts."

"The Infinera TM-Series will provide the Telia Carrier metro network with a 100G packet-optical platform featuring multi-service capabilities including the ability to support MEF 2.0 certified Ethernet services, mobile front-haul, wholesale bandwidth and metro aggregation. The solution offers a unified network management layer across DTN-X and TM-Series and programmable software defined networking (SDN) application programming interfaces (APIs) to enable rapid service."
"Telia Carrier says it has begun deployment of a second fiber-optic network route between the San Francisco Bay Area and Los Angeles based on DTN-X packet-optical transport systems from Infinera [...] Telia and Infinera have a long history together in North America and elsewhere. According to Mike Capuano, vice president of marketing at Infinera, the deployment represents a milestone for the systems house in that it's the first publicly announced extension of a DTN-X long-haul network to the metro using the TM-Series, which came to Infinera with the acquisition of Transmode."

"Telia Carrier has built a West Coast network to bring 100G services into the Bay Area metro markets in the US to meet the demands of its content and entertainment provider customers. In partnership with Infinera, Telia Carrier – the newly re-branded global arm of TeliaSonera – is doubling its West Coast backbone with an additional Pacific Coast Highway route between San Francisco Bay Area and Los Angeles. The route is designed to connect the internet content providers of the Bay Area with the entertainment and media providers in Hollywood."
