In May 2013 the Infinera DTN-X platform was selected to upgrade BICS’ Pan-European network, stretching across 9,000 kilometers of fiber in Europe and linking through the cable landing station in Marseille into the EIG & SEA-ME-WE 4 submarine cable systems.
The Infinera DTN-X delivers 500 Gigabit per second long haul super-channels, enabling BICS to deliver flexible and cost effective 100 Gigabit Ethernet services. BICS selected the Infinera DTN-X for the scalability, efficiency and simplicity the solution delivers. The Infinera DTN-X allows BICS to provide flexible solutions and ensures a faster service implementation, translating into a shorter time to market for our customers.
This new platform will enable the aggregation of multiple high speed services on a single OTN interface. The advanced control plane offers the possibility of self-provisioning for high capacity services making BICS the perfect network outsourcing partner.
Infinera, a leading provider of Digital Optical Networks is the first to deliver 500Gb/s long-haul super-channels based on Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) and the FlexCoherent™ Processor, scaling transport capacity without scaling operational complexity. The Infinera DTN-X increases network efficiency with five Terabits of non-blocking OTN switching per bay, scalable to 240 Tb/s in a multi-bay configuration and resulting in much more efficient utilization when compared to conventional WDM architectures.
The Infinera solution includes an intelligent control plane that simplifies service deployment, enabling BICS to deploy networks in days and services in minutes thereby lowering operational costs while providing faster service delivery than the competition.
