Sparkle Uses Infinera For Sicily Backbone


Nibble Network uses XT-3600 to connect major points of presence and datacentres in Europe.

Infinera has announced that Sparkle is deploying Infinera's XT-3600 for its Nibble Network, a new ultra-long-haul photonic backbone connecting Sicily with major points of presence and datacentres in Europe.

Sparkle will use the XT-3600's performance, small form factor, low power consumption, and ability to interoperate with its existing Infinera network. This integration simplifies operations and helps Sparkle to quickly activate new and on-demand capacity for customers upon request without network overprovisioning.

Sparkle, the first international service provider in Italy, launched Nibble to provide high speeds and low-latency, high-performance, scalable, and guaranteed connectivity services between the most important European locations, meeting carriers' and enterprises' rapidly increasing network capacity requirements. With the XT-3600, Sparkle delivers 100 Gigabit Ethernet cloud-scale services in a compact form factor while automating service activation through Instant Bandwidth.

“We are pleased to partner with Sparkle, providing Infinite Network solutions that help Sparkle win in its market,” said Bob Jandro, SVP, worldwide sales at Infinera. “As bandwidth demands continue to grow, operators seek solutions that can scale capacity and simplify operations. The Infinera XT-3600 is yet another example of how Infinera is transforming transport networks to cloud scale.”

The Infinera XT-3600, part of the Infinera Infinite Core solution, incorporates the groundbreaking performance of Infinera's fourth-generation Infinite Capacity Engine (ICE4) and the Infinera Advanced Coherent Toolkit for enhanced capacity and reach performance with low power consumption.
