Sunnyvale, Calif., – Feb. 3, 2014 – Infinera (NASDAQ: INFN), provider of Intelligent Transport Networks™, announced today that cable operator Service Electric Cable TV & Communications (Service Electric) has deployed the Infinera DTN platform across its new regional network serving customers in Central and Northeastern Pennsylvania and Northwestern New Jersey.
Service Electric selected an Infinera Intelligent Transport Network for the speed, simplicity and reliability that the Infinera DTN brings to their network. Service Electric provides residential and commercial cable and telecommunications services, offering a full range of broadband services to their customers. By deploying the Infinera DTN, Service Electric can quickly deliver services ranging from 155 megabits per second (Mb/s) to 100 gigabits per second (Gb/s). The platform’s operational simplicity allows the existing engineering team to manage the regional network without the need to add additional engineering resources.
“We have a very busy engineering team, so we’re looking for intelligent solutions that simplify network operations and accelerate new service turn-up. This allows us to focus on growing our business,” said John M. Walson, President of Service Electric. “An Infinera Intelligent Network lets us do just that. With one-time optical layer engineering coupled with intelligent software that automates many provisioning operations that were previously manual, the Infinera solution allows our engineers to turn up services quickly. This gives us a competitive advantage with our customers.”
“Cable and telecommunication operators like Service Electric see the value in an optical networking solution that is simple to operate and can deliver on services quickly,” said Mike Kelly, Vice President of Cable Sales at Infinera. “The Infinera DTN, enabled by photonic integrated circuits and integrated digital switching, allows operators to add capacity to their network quickly without complicated engineering, and the DTN’s reliability means MSO engineers can spend more time generating new revenue rather than fixing problems in the network.”
Infinera’s solutions for cable operators include the Infinera DTN, an Intelligent Transport platform for long-haul and metro core platform; the Infinera ATN metro edge platform designed to provide scalable optical transport for access and commercial service aggregation; and the Infinera DTN-X platform featuring 500 Gb/s long-haul super-channels. Infinera’s Intelligent Transport Network solutions are widely deployed by major U.S. MSOs in national backbone, regional, and metro applications.
