Infinera obtains TL 9000 certification 

Infinera Corp of Sunnyvale, CA, USA , a vertically integrated manufacturer of digital optical network systems incorporating its own indium phosphide-based photonic integrated circuits (PICs), says that its major facilities in the USA and India have achieved certification according to the TL 9000, an international standard for quality processes in the telecoms industry (including requirements for all major management and measurement systems).

Compared with ISO 9001 certification (achieved by Infinera in 2007), there are 50 additional requirements in TL 9000 registration. Certification is evidence of Infinera’s commitment to build a sustained business around its PIC technology, says Lonny Orona, VP of customer service & corporate quality. 

The firm comments that TL 9000 registration represents a continuing emphasis on customer relationships, reliability of products and services, enhanced product life-cycle, tracking customer requirements through design and development, telecom specific performance measurements, service requirements, benchmarking data, comprehensive disaster recovery and long-term commitment to continuous improvement. The certification demonstrates that Infinera’s systems meet the quality and reliability requirements of the most demanding telecom networks, the firm adds.
