Italian service provider Infracom has chosen Infinera (Nasdaq: INFN) to supply equipment for an upgrade to its backbone network, the systems vendor reports.

Based in Verona and with branches throughout Italy, Infracom offers a range of ICT services. Its assets include a 9,000-km backbone network connecting major cities throughout Italy including Turin, Milan, Padua, Bologna, Rome, Naples, and Bari.

Infracom selected an Infinera DTN Digital ROADM network for the upgrade. The enhancement will enable Infracom to deliver services from 1 to 40 Gbps initially and 100 Gbps in the future.

“We decided to light our own optical network. After a comprehensive evaluation of the alternatives, we selected Infinera because we are convinced that Infinera DTN technology is the right solution for the specific needs of a large national telecom operator like Infracom,” said Giovanni Zola, managing director at Infracom. “At Infracom we are firmly committed to delivering top quality high-speed transport services over fiber and our customers particularly appreciate the rapidity of our delivery, our great flexibility in building custom-tailored solutions and, above all, the reliability of our services and the proactive approach we guarantee in managing potentially critical situations. Infinera DTN technology meets all our expectations and we are sure it will strengthen our competitiveness and help us further improve the quality of our transport services.”
