Milpitas, Calif., March 6, 2012 — JDSU announced today that Infinera, a market leader in long-haul wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) optical networking technology, has selected the JDSU ONT 100G Tester Solution to help ensure the high quality and reliability of its new Multi-Terabit DTN-X platform. Infinera will use JDSU’s solution to validate the quality performance of its customers’ 100G solutions while demonstrating the DTN-X platform on the Infinera Express, a mobile demo truck, during the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exposition (OFC), March 4-8, in Los Angeles.
The Infinera Express tours the globe to offer hands-on experience in cutting-edge optical transport innovation, like 500 Gb/s super-channels, coherent modulation and digital automation. It will use JDSU’s 100G test solutions during these key field demonstrations with communications service provider customers and at industry forums worldwide.
“Successful 100G deployments are essential for service providers to meet the challenges resulting from growing traffic and ensure high quality of service for the end user,” said Dr. Lars Friedrich, vice president and general manager in JDSU's Communications Test and Measurement business segment. “Infinera’s demonstrations with JDSU’s ONT 100G solution are a testament to our ongoing customer collaboration efforts to ensure that service providers receive high quality products and verify their performance before deploying 100G services in their network.”
The explosion of network traffic, driven by the growing demand for video and other applications, exacerbates service quality challenges and contributes to the growing need for cost-effective transmission and switching technologies. JDSU’s optical network tester (ONT) 100G solution simulates the complexities of live network traffic with a very high degree of accuracy. JDSU’s ONT 100G solution is well positioned to demonstrate end customer benefits and technical advantages with its industry leading breadth and depth of functionality in all required areas such as physical layer testing, high speed Ethernet, IP and OTN switching.
“JDSU’s 100G expertise has been central in the lab and the field to help ensure the success of our customers’ trials,” said Michael Capuano, vice president of corporate marketing at Infinera. “The ONT 100G solution helps test multiple client-side services of 10GbE, 40GbE and 100GbE on a line-side 500G super-channel on the DTN-X. Ultimately this enables our service provider customers to confidently deploy Infinera solutions maximizing efficiency of their optical transport network.”
The DTN-X is industry’s first multi-terabit packet-optical transport network platform based on the ground-breaking 500 Gb/s Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs). It is purpose-built to integrate switching with DWDM without any trade-offs in capacity. The architecture of the DTN-X extends the ease of use and reliability of Infinera’s successful DTN in a new multi-terabit platform that scales for the future, is simple to operate and efficiently reduces the number of elements in the network.
JDSU will exhibit its latest ONT 100G solutions at OFC at booth #1403. Infinera will showcase live operations on a pair of DTN-X systems in the Infinera Express stationed at booth #1158.
