XTM Series for Packet-Optical Networks from Access to Core

The XTM Series is Infinera’s metro packet-optical platform that encompasses Layer 0 and Layer 1 optical transport networking with Layer 2 and Layer 2.5 Ethernet and multiprotocol label switching – transport profile (MPLS-TP) networking in one system. This carrier-class platform provides the transport of any service between 10 megabits per second and 100 gigabits per second (100G) and beyond in access, metro and metro core networks. With its modular and scalable system of pluggable optics and key characteristics such as low power and high density, it provides efficient delivery of today’s and tomorrow’s demanding services in a single platform.

With its multi-service capabilities, including services such as Ethernet/Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE2.0), MPLS-TP, Optical Transport Network (OTN) and Fibre Channel, the XTM Series platform is ideal in a wide range of applications such as mobile transport, triple-play backhaul and Internet Protocol television (IPTV), business Ethernet, enterprise networks, metro regional core networking and wholesale.

Mattias Fridström, Chief Technology Officer at Telia Carrier said, “The West Coast is a critical network segment in the U.S., and we are adding an additional route to further enhance customer experience in the region. The Infinera XTM Series makes the economics of 100G work. This metro solution brings with it the benefits of an integrated, low-power and space-saving design. More and more of our customers are doing the math and working out that now is the time to invest in 100G. And thanks to Infinera, we are ready for them.”
