INDIA: Infinera from its barrio has presented new-fangled solutions aimed at service providers planning to streamline the operation of multi-layer transport networks by way of increased automation.
Multi-layer transport networks merge the efficacy of digital switching plus the scale of optical switching to create the communication foundation of cloud-based services and the Internet.
The novel solution comprises the industry’s first super-channel FlexROADM (reconfigurable optical add drop multiplexer),followed by the first standards based multi-layer control plane for spectrum switched optical networks (SSON) and the first 500 gigabit per second (Gb/s) flexible-grid super-channels. The combination of the Infinera DTN-X packet optical transport networking platform with these fresh solutions exclusively facilitates multi-layer automation of Intelligent Transport Networks.
“At Telefonica I+D we continuously explore innovative technologies to help create the communication services of the future,” alleged Juan Fernandez-Palacios at Telefonica I+D lab. Supplementing that – “Our successful testing of the innovative FlexROADM helped shape the solution Infinera is announcing today. This is one example of how Telefonica I+D collaborates with technology innovators like Infinera to shape the next generation of optical networks.”
“Infinera continues to drive innovation in the optical communications industry,” held Ron Kline, principal analyst at Ovum. Volumnising that – “Adding super-channel FlexROADM capabilities to its unique photonic integrated circuit based architecture deepens the company’s differentiation. A unified control plane with multi-layer automation provides needed flexibility at a time when communications service providers really need it.”
