Telstra partners with Infinera in upgrading multiple submarine routes in Asia Pacific

HONOLULU, Jan. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Infinera (NASDAQ: INFN) and Telstra today announced the upgrade of multiple ultra-long haul submarine cable routes, optimizing capacity and providing scalability and reliability on key routes of Telstra's network.

The Infinera Intelligent Transport Network will enable Telstra to quickly deploy 10G, 40G and 100G Ethernet and OTN services on:

  • Telstra Endeavour – a 9,124 kilometers submarine cable connecting Sydney and Hawaii; 
  • Telstra's Designated Fiber Pair on the Asia America Gateway (AAG) submarine cable connecting Hawaii and California; and
  • Reach North Asia Loop (RNAL), which spans 9,000 kilometers to connect Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan and South Korea.

Darrin Webb, Chief Operating Officer for Telstra Global said, "As a trusted network supplier, our job is to ensure we are adapting and creating capacity where it is required. Demand for network services in the Asia Pacific region is growing exponentially and the addition of Infinera's DTN-X platform means we will be well placed to meet the speed and capacity needs of our customers.

"We are continually developing our network to meet customers' requirements and this is just one of the projects we are working on to ensure our network is always growing, improving and providing world class services," said Mr. Webb.

Dr. David Welch, Infinera CTO, Co-Founder and President said, "As global businesses turn to cloud-based offerings, we're seeing increasing demand for reliable, global connectivity. We are delighted to build on our existing relationship with Telstra Global to deploy an Intelligent Transport Network across these major submarine routes.

"With an Infinera Intelligent Network deployed across Endeavour, AAG and RNAL, Telstra can deploy highly reliable, differentiated services to their customers while reducing capital and operating costs through scale, multi-layer convergence and automation. Telstra Global's deployment is a great example of how long-haul super-channels with SD FEC are accelerating the pace of global communities."

The Infinera DTN-X is designed to scale without compromise to enable future upgrades to terabit super-channels and Terabit Ethernet. The DTN-X converges five Terabits of non-blocking OTN switching into the same platform, resulting in more efficient network utilization when compared to conventional WDM architectures. Intelligent software combined with this converged platform automates manual operations to lower operational costs and enable faster service delivery.

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation.

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small? Analytics: What kinds and how responsiv...
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.
