Infinera demonstrating DTN-X 100G platform at SCTE Cable-Tec

In the Infinera Express truck on booth #2917 at the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo in Orlando, FL (17-19 October), 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), is featuring live demonstrations of its DTN-X, which is claimed to be the industry’s first multi-terabit packet-optical transport platform.

Now being deployed worldwide, the DTN-X is said to be the first to deliver 500Gb/s super-channels based on PICs and the FlexCoherent Processor, scaling transport capacity without scaling operational complexity. Infinera’s PICs combine multiple optical subsystems on a single integrated circuit and result in fewer fiber connections, less space, and less power compared with conventional systems based on discrete components, says the firm. The DTN-X increases network efficiency with 5 Terabits of integrated OTN switching per bay, resulting in much more efficient utilization of the 100Gb/s waves compared with conventional WDM architectures that do not allow sub-lambda grooming and switching, the firm adds. Infinera’s Bandwidth Virtualization simplifies service deployment, enabling cable operators to deploy networks in days and services in minutes, thereby lowering operational costs.

In the Infinera Express truck, Infinera will also showcase its DTN, a metro and long-haul DWDM digital ROADM offering 40 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet service interfaces to support high-bandwidth applications and DWDM line-card supporting 40Gb/s per wavelength coherent optical transmission, enabling the DTN platform to scale up to 6.4Tb/s of transmission capacity per fiber. The ATN, designed for WDM metro edge applications, will also be featured at the show.

At Cable-Tec Expo’s technical workshops, Gaylord Hart, director of the MSO market segment at Infinera, is moderating the panel ‘The Kilowatts Are Coming! Act Now or Be Overpowered’ on 18 October at 8:00am. Presenters, including Infinera’s technical marketing manager Thomas Neel, will discuss increasing energy efficiencies in cable networks as services expand and network bandwidth requirements continue to double every 12-18 months.

Infinera’s solutions are widely deployed by major US MSOs in national backbone, regional, and metro applications. The firm says that it currently has DTN-X purchase commitments from cable operators.
