LightBound to Deploy Infinera’s Scalable ATN Network with Ethernet ADM

Infinera has announced that the ATN network designed by the company has been chosen by LightBound, a technology-based service provider based in Indianapolis for deployment of the optical network in the State of Indiana.

The network upgrade by LightBound will provide 200 Mi of fiber connectivity to five cities in Indiana including Bloomington and Indianapolis. The scalability and flexibility of Infinera's ATN network solution will cost-effectively provide more capacity for LightBound’s optical transport infrastructure as well as support the video services, Ethernet, SAN, OTN, SONET/SDH, optical power management and other services offered by LightBound.

Infinera’s ATN Release 3.0 will be deployed for LightBound’s network upgrade. It allows for extensive regional reach and adds Ethernet ADM (Add Drop Multiplexing) on blade functionality features, which coupled with the current scalable WDM transport with multi-service aggregation, will serve the multiservice, regional and metro Ethernet networks.

The senior networking engineer of LightBound, Matt Addison stated that the ATN network solution designed by Infinera allows the company to expand the network by choosing the features such as an easy-to-use network management system, multiservice 10 Gbps muxponders and 40 channel DWDM scalability, all relevant to the service provided by LightBound.

The Chief Executive Officer of Infinera, Tom Fallon stated that with the ATN network, LightBound can expand their broadband and enterprise services to its customers.
