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.
