Infinera ranks third worldwide and first in North America terrestrial long-haul WDM transport and ROADM market

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 Infonetics Research Inc has ranked it as the number-one supplier in the North America terrestrial long-haul WDM (wavelength division multiplexing) transport and ROADM (reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexer) market.

“In the third quarter of 2011, Infinera posted a revenue increase that moves them into first position in North America and third position worldwide for combined terrestrial long-haul WDM transport and ROADM equipment,” notes Andrew Schmitt, directing analyst for optical at Infonetics Research.

Infinera’s market share results in Q3 for North America were driven largely by leading cable companies, wholesale carriers, tier 1 customers, and Internet content providers. European wholesale carriers and opportunities in the submarine space contributed to the firm’s growth worldwide.

“Global network operators benefit from the scale, simplicity and efficiency of Infinera’s optical network solution,” claims Infinera’s CEO Tom Fallon. “Infinera’s solution for network operators helps them be more responsive to their customers’ needs while confidently planning for future network growth,” he adds.

Infinera’s product portfolio includes its PIC-based DTN platform as well as ATN (a scalable metro WDM transport platform) and the recently announced DTN-X platform (with 500Gb/s FlexCoherent super-channels).
