Infinera (NASDAQ: INFN) says it has won a contract from Telefónica Deutschland for supply of elements of the Infinera DRX Series disaggregated router family. The Tier 1 German telecommunications services provider will use the routers to prep its nationwide mobile transport network to support for 5G mobile services.
Telefónica Deutschland offers mobile and fixed services for private and business customers, as well as such digital products and services for the Internet of Things and data analytics. Infinera says Telefónica Deutschland plans to deploy multiple DRX Series platforms, including configurations that support 300-Gbps and 900-Gbps transmission. The DRX Series, in combination with the CNOS operating system, will enable the service provider to use a stacking capability for node expansion and increased resiliency; multiple DRX Series elements can be connected to double or triple node capacity while operating as a single routing entity, according to Infinera.
“Telefónica Deutschland is on the forefront of innovation and expansion to ensure we provide our customers with the best experience and meet them where they live, work, and move,” said Cayetano Carbajo Martín, CTO at Telefónica Deutschland. “As we continue to improve network experiences for our customers now and into the future, we rely on solutions that are scalable and automated, and the Infinera DRX Series will be a great addition to our future 5G network environment.”
