Infinera Reports One Billion Hours of Failure-Free Operations of Photonic Integrated Circuits

Infinera, a leading provider of Intelligent Transport Networks™, announced today that Infinera's photonic integrated circuits (PICs) recently surpassed one billion hours of failure-free operation in live networks worldwide. This achievement underscores the reliability of Infinera's PICs and the key role they play in creating Intelligent Transport Networks.

This figure is a cumulative total for all of the PICs that Infinera has shipped to customers since late 2004 in the Infinera DTN and DTN-X platforms. PICs are deployed by 109 customers in 67 countries around the world to light over one million kilometers of fiber and provide over three petabits per second of transmission capacity.

"This achievement is a very significant milestone for Infinera," said Rick Talbot, Current Analysis. "It demonstrates that photonic integration offers the same kind of benefits in reliability as silicon integration for electronics has demonstrated over the past 50 years. This reliability is critical as operators leverage PICs for cost-effective super-channel solutions to scale Intelligent Transport Networks."

"We are excited to make this announcement, as it demonstrates that Infinera has revolutionized this marketplace with our photonic integrated circuits," said Dave Welch, Infinera Co-Founder, Executive Vice President and CTO. "Our solutions, based on photonic integrated circuits, provide global service providers with the reliability they demand to operate Intelligent Transport Networks."

Infinera continues to lead the long-haul 100G optical transport market since its entry in Q2 2012. The company announced last month that the Dell’Oro Group ranked Infinera number one for the first quarter of 2013 in the global long-haul 100G wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) market.

The Intelligent Transport Network is an evolution of Infinera’s Digital Optical Network and is showcased by the DTN-X platform and the Infinera portfolio. The DTN-X is engineered to be scalable and provide investment protection with one terabit per slot capacity ready for future terabit super-channels and Terabit Ethernet. It was designed from the ground up to converge DWDM transmission and OTN switching today along with optical and MPLS switching in the future. It is automated with an intelligent control plane and provides a platform for Transport SDN and Infinera’s Open Transport Switch. With the Intelligent Transport Network and the DTN-X, carriers can increase revenues with rapid service delivery, reduce capital costs through multi-layer optimization and reduce operating costs through multi-layer automation.
