Allo Technology taps Infinera to boost its optical network and service in Malaysia

Oct. 1, 2023
After conducting a recent field trial, the service provider selected Infinera’s pluggable solutions.

Allo Technology, a Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) subsidiary, has selected Infinera’s ICE-X intelligent coherent pluggables and XTM Series platforms to expand network capacity and services throughout Malaysia.

Infinera’s solutions were chosen after Allo found they meet its performance parameter during a recent field trial where Infinera’s suite of ICE-X intelligent pluggables was hosted in Infinera’s XTM Series packet optical networking platform across Allo’s network spanning 1,228 kilometers from the Thailand border to Malaysia.

According to Allo, Infinera’s solutions delivered high transmission performance and efficient traffic aggregation while expanding overall network capacity. Infinera’s solutions enable Allo to expand its services across Malaysia to bring broadband connectivity to the country, extending broadband services to parts of the country where services are unavailable.

Planned network deployments include point-to-multipoint network architectures utilizing the wide range of deployment options of Infinera’s ICE-X intelligent coherent pluggables and the XTM platform. Having point-to-multipoint architectures, Allo said it could gain network economics benefits with reduced network capital expenditure and network operating cost through lower space and power requirements and dramatic network simplification.

Deploying Infinera’s ICE-X coherent pluggables technology is an essential milestone for Allo, making it the first operator in the region to do so. The Allo Carrier Network System (ACNS) is the optical backbone for Malaysia, providing direct connectivity with broad coverage spanning the peninsula. Allo remains focused on its ACNS to identify innovative ways to enhance and maximize its network assets to offer customers cost-efficient, high-capacity next-generation services that are competitive and scalable.

“For network operators like Allo, Infinera’s latest solutions enable them to leverage existing network assets to extend bandwidth services seamlessly and efficiently,” said Ryan Perera, SVP of APAC Sales at Infinera. “This increases the value of their network infrastructure while positioning them for future growth.”
