Infinera, a leading provider of Digital Optical Networks, announced today the test completion of Ericsson (formerly Telcordia Technologies) Operations Systems Modification for the Integration of Network Elements (OSMINE) Services process for the Infinera DTN-X platform and the latest release of the DTN platform. This was fulfilled for various products within the OSMINE process including inventory management via TIRKS®, fault management via NMA® System, and service provisioning via Transport Element Activation Manager.
The test completion of Ericsson’s OSMINE process is a significant event for Infinera. OSMINE certification enables U.S. Tier 1 service providers to successfully integrate Infinera's DTN-X and the latest release of DTN into Ericsson Operations Support Systems (OSS) ensuring the interoperability of Infinera platforms with existing systems and enabling service providers to accelerate their network deployment rapidly upon selection of Infinera. This is also a first for any network equipment vendor to accomplish an OTN-based OSMINE certification that includes ODUflex capabilities as the Infinera DTN-X and DTN are based on an advanced architecture that integrates WDM transport and OTN switching including ODUflex/ODU0 granularity in a single platform.
"Completion of the Ericsson OSMINE process is an important achievement for network equipment suppliers looking to sell into the Tier 1 market," said Elisabetta Romano, Head of OSS, Business Unit Support Solutions, Ericsson. "This industry-recognized OSS network integration process validates that vendors like Infinera are ready to sell into the Tier 1 market and provides service providers with the confidence that the DTN-X and DTN platforms are network-ready solutions."
"The test completion of OSMINE for DTN-X and DTN is a critical milestone for Infinera," said Tom Fallon, Infinera CEO. "This certification satisfies the requirements for our existing customer and proves to U.S. Tier 1 service providers that Infinera solutions can now operate with the Ericsson OSSs."
Infinera is the first to commercially deliver optical networking solutions based on Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs). The Infinera DTN-X platform features 500 Gb/s long-haul super-channels based on the FlexCoherent™ Processor, scaling transport capacity without scaling operational complexity. In Dell‘Oro’s Q3 2012 quarterly long-haul optical transport market share report, the DTN-X achieved the number one market share position with 38% worldwide share of 100G ports recognized for revenue. Infinera’s DTN platform features 100 Gb/s PICs and revolutionized the marketplace in its initial release. Both platforms are deployed in networks globally, offering service providers simple, scalable, and reliable optical network solutions.
