SUNNYVALE, CA, Mar 07, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --Infinera (NASDAQ:INFN, news, filings), a leading provider of digital optical communications systems, will showcase the DTN-X platform, the industry's first multi-terabit packet-optical transport solution, at CableLabs(R) Winter Conference next week. The conference, open to CableLabs member companies and approved vendors, takes place March 11-14 at the Philadelphia Marriott in Philadelphia, PA.
At the Winter Conference, Infinera will show how optical networks based on photonic integration provide the only cost-effective approach to reducing transport costs per bit today and as networks scale into the terabit era.
"As cable operators' transport bandwidth requirements grow annually at a compounded 50-100 percent, networks cannot continue to scale simply by adding more optical transponders," said Gaylord Hart, Infinera's Director of CATV Marketing. "Aside from cost, the required space, power and optical couplings rapidly become unmanageable. Just as modern computers would not exist today without large scale photonic integrated circuits, affordable optical networks will not be possible tomorrow without photonic integration."
At the CableLabs' demonstration area, Infinera product and technology experts will describe how photonic integration with complex modulation reduces total cost of ownership and how PICs implementing 1 Tb/s super-channels will be able to triple fiber capacity up to 24 Tb/s on Infinera's DTN-X platform.
Infinera's DTN-X platform is the only optical network solution built using 500 Gb/s photonic integrated circuits (PICs), integrating more than 600 optical functions onto a pair of chips and delivering the world's first 500 Gb/s FlexCoherent super-channels based on 100 Gb/s channels. Infinera's DTN-X platform provides cable operators a network solution that scales for the future, is simple to operate and quick to deploy new services, and efficiently lowers the total cost of ownership.
Infinera's solutions for cable operators include the Infinera DTN, a Digital ROADM-based long-haul and metro platform; the Infinera ATN metro edge platform designed to provide scalable optical transport for access and commercial service aggregation; and Infinera's DTN-X platform featuring 500 Gb/s super-channels. Infinera's solutions are widely deployed by major U.S. MSOs in national backbone, regional, and metro applications.
