"Advances in open optical transport system architectures are creating ultra-dense, ultra-efficient IXP applications, including innovative 1 rack unit (1RU) modular open transport platforms for cloud and data center networks that can be equipped as muxponder terminal systems and as open line system (OLS) optical layer platforms. Purpose-built for interconnectivity applications, these disaggregated platforms offer high density, flexibility, and low power consumption. Designed to meet the scalability requirements of network operators now and into the future, innovations in OLSs include a pay-as-you-grow disaggregated approach that enables the lowest startup costs, reduced equipment sparing costs, and cost-effective scalability."

"Andres Madero, Director: Service Provider, Architecture & Business, Development at Infinera Latam, believes that Brazil's National Internet of Things (IoT) plan will require a cloud scale approach towards preparing the traditional transport infrastructure. 'The increment on the amount of terminal units to be incorporated by IoT in any of the verticals will represent a significant increase in the amount of bandwidth required in the network,' he says. 'Critical mission applications driven by IoT automation will also require these networks to focus not only on the amount of bandwidth delivered but also the quality (data delay) of the traffic.'"

"Infinera expects to deliver industry-leading growth and operating margins once it exploits the benefits of vertical integration across an expanded portfolio of platforms, said Fallon."

"With the acquisition news, Infinera also gave preliminary results for its second quarter, with revenues now forecast slightly higher than the midpoint of its previously given guidance range of USD 203-213 million."

"Comms provider SSE Enterprise Telecoms has today introduced a new technology platform with Infinera, which harnesses the XTM series for metro fibre optic networks and claims to create a 'credible UK alternative to costly new cable laying projects' by offering a resilient 'dark fibre-like' network to businesses."
Optical Connections News, 6/27/2018
"SSE Enterprise Telecoms chose to partner with Infinera due to its unique combination of layer 1 and 2 packet optical and ethernet services – serving as an alternative to customers laying costly dark fibre cabling. Infinera’ synchronisation capabilities allow for flexibility on the network, not currently available at such scale or at an accessible price point for SSE Enterprise Telecoms’ customers."

"DWDM technology essentially transmits data from multiple sources on the same fibre using separate light wavelengths. Infinera’s version is based on an 88-channel architecture, with each channel supporting wavelengths that can carry either one or two 100Gbps payloads.
It will give SSE the ability to offer customers either 100Gbps or fractional 100Gbps services over either pure optical, packet optical, wavelength or filtered light services.
'This maximises the potential of our system and increases our capacity and reach,' said Mallon."

"Infinera will be supplying SSE with kit developed following its acquisition of Swedish company Transmode three years ago. 'It will offer 100G services – and multiples of 100G at a competitive rate,' said Mallon."
Broadband World News, 6/11/2018
"Infinera’s Jay Gill Principal Manager, Cloud & SDN Marketing, argues that significant benefits can be gained from a disaggregation of transponders; 'though many existing line systems are not fully open and some operational challenges remain to be addressed.' He says, 'the most advanced network operators, including some ICPs, are already deploying open networks based on this concept and we see it spreading rapidly to other network operators because of the significant benefits to be gained.'"
