Infinera's DTN-X Solution Deployed for the Delivery of 100Gb/s Services Across Mediterranean

Infinera, a provider of digital optical networks based in Sunnyvale,
California USA, and Telecom Italia Sparkle Group, announced the
MedNautilus’ deployment of the Infinera DTN-X platform across the
Mediterranean to increase capacity up to 100Gb/s international connectivity
services. MedNautilus, the Mediterranean operations of the Telecom Italia
Sparkle Group, operates the largest protected submarine cable network in the
Mediterranean connecting Italy, Greece, Turkey, Israel and Cyprus, and serves
the growing capacity needs of the region.

According to Infinera, the DTN-X can scale transport capacity without
scaling operational complexity. Infinera says that the DTN-X solution offers
coherent long haul reach for submarine links to seamlessly integrate
terrestrial and subsea applications for network operators. Infinera says that
the DTN-X is the first to deliver up to 500 Gb/s long-haul super-channels based
on Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) and the FlexCoherent™
Processor.

Mario Pirro, Sparkle’s EVP Technology, commented, “The
market in the region is demanding faster and more advanced services and with
the Infinera DTN-X solution for the provision of 100Gb/s services, we are able
to provide the capacity we need in order to meet the fast growing requirements
of our customers throughout the markets covered by our backbone.”
