Eurofiber has selected an end-to-end Infinera Digital Optical Network for its backbone network extending throughout the Netherlands and into Belgium. Eurofiber has deployed a combined Infinera DTN-ATN network for its speed, reliability, and ease of operation.
Eurofiber is an independent supplier of telecom services based in Utrecht, with a network that spans roughly 10,000 km in the Netherlands and offering connection points in Belgium and Germany. Eurofiber chose an Infinera network to provide customers with highly scalable bandwidth to meet customers’ needs for increased bandwidth. Infinera’s ease of deployment will also enable Eurofiber to extend its footprint into new regions and new metro areas, according to a company representative.
The Infinera DTN, powered by photonic integrated circuits, is designed to deliver up to 160 wavelengths of DWDM line-side capacity throughout the network. With integrated switched DWDM bandwidth, an Infinera network offers the capability to carry any service between any points on the network without the constraints typical of all-optical systems.
An Infinera network enables the use of Bandwidth Virtualization for decoupling bandwidth services from optics and the integration of digital OTN switching with DWDM. Infinera’s network management tool, the Infinera Management Suite, is engineered to provide seamless integration of Eurofiber’s DTN and ATN networks, with end-to-end service provisioning and visibility.
“We are delighted that Eurofiber believes the best way to offer their customers a scalable and reliable solution is through an Infinera end-to-end solution,” says Infinera CEO Tom Fallon.
The Infinera family of optical systems includes the Infinera DTN, the first optical system based on large-scale photonicintegrated circuits, and the Infinera ATN, a compact metro edge platform that extends the benefits of Infinera’s Digital Optical Networks.
