Sunnyvale, Calif. – May 19, 2015 – Infinera, provider of Intelligent Transport Networks, announced that Colt Technology Services, a provider of network, voice, datacenter and managed Cloud services, is deploying the Infinera DTN-X packet optical transport networking platform for the upgrade of its long distance network (LDN), known as the European Supercore. With the Infinera DTN-X platform, Colt can support the demand for high capacity services in Europe more effectively. Infinera’s Instant Bandwidth™ allows Colt to rapidly provision 40G and 100G services to its carrier and enterprise customers while providing highly reliable and scalable services.
Colt’s European Supercore network, powered by the Infinera DTN-X, extends the benefits of Colt’s existing long distance network. The European Supercore network supports national and international services between the European cities of London, Paris, Amsterdam, Brussels, Frankfurt, Dusseldorf, Hamburg, Berlin, Munich, Stuttgart, Zurich, Vienna and Dublin. The solution supports up to eight terabits per second (Tb/s) of capacity and the ability to provide continued service and revenue growth in the high bandwidth services market.
“Carriers, Cloud providers and enterprise customers know they can rely on Colt and our world class infrastructure to deliver and manage reliable services, leaving them free to focus on their priorities. This network upgrade is the latest in a series of investments in our network and will allow Colt to rapidly provision high-bandwidth services to our customer base in Europe. The Infinera platform allows us to easily scale the network as customer demand increases over time, giving Colt the flexibility needed to effectively support our customers,” said Zhongmin Guo, VP of strategy and business development, Network Services at Colt Technology Services.
“We are pleased the Infinera Intelligent Transport Network is powering Colt’s European Supercore network extending the benefits of LDN services between the key European cities,” said Chris Champion, senior vice president, EMEA. “Infinera is committed to continuing to provide Colt with a solution that automates, converges and simplifies its optical transport network to reliably deliver advanced services to its customers.”
The Infinera DTN-X platform delivers capacity of 100 Gb/s coherent transmission today via 500 Gb/s super-channels, with a forward-scale design to support terabit super-channels in the future. The high capacity super-channels are enabled by 500 Gb/s photonic integrated circuits (PICs) developed and fabricated by Infinera – the only supplier delivering 500 Gb/s of transmission capacity from a single line card today. PICs are designed to enable the DTN-X platform to integrate dense wavelength division multiplexing super-channel transmission with up to 12 Tb/s of non-blocking optical transport network switching, providing seamless scaling as traffic requirements grow in the future.
