Telstra International adds coherent 40 Gbps to RNAL via Infinera DTN

March 26, 2012
Infinera (NASDAQ: INFN) reveals that Telstra International has deployed Infinera's 40-Gbps DTN capabilities for its optical subsea network in Asia. The network spans approximately 9,000 km between Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, and South Korea.

Infinera (NASDAQ: INFN) reveals that Telstra International has deployed Infinera's 40-Gbps DTN capabilities for its optical subsea network in Asia. The Reach North Asia Loop (RNAL) network spans approximately 9,000 km between Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, and South Korea.

Telstra is the 100th customer for the DTN, Infinera adds.

Telstra International, a division of Australian national carrier Telstra Corporation Ltd., selected the DTN platform for its simplicity, scalability, and technology, Infinera says.

"Telstra operates one of the largest and most diverse networks in Asia Pacific. We chose Infinera because it has demonstrated leadership in technological innovation, offering the most reliable and technically advanced DWDM system on the market,” confirms Telstra International Group Chief Operating Officer Martijn Blanken.

"We are confident we have invested in a network that will accommodate the needs of our customers now and into the future," Blanken added.

Infinera's DTN platform enables service providers to upgrade existing submarine cables with coherent 40-Gbps wavelengths via its FlexCoherent technology. The DTN can be upgraded to 100-Gbps FlexCoherent operation, which includes soft-decision forward error correction, which would support 7.3 Tbps of capacity over Telstra's RNAL fiber plant.
