Infinera & JDSU join forces to optimise 100 G networks

JDSU's solution accelerates the development of Infinera's optical transport network-based systems which are based on indium phosphide technology


Infinera has chosen 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 products to validate the quality performance of its customers’ 100 G solutions whilst demonstrating the DTN-X platform on the Infinera Express. This is a mobile demo truck, which was showcased during the Optical Fibre Communication Conference and Exposition (OFC), last week 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 100 G test solutions during these key field demonstrations with communications service provider customers and at industry forums worldwide.

“Successful 100 G 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 Lars Friedrich, vice president and general manager in JDSU's Communications Test and Measurement business segment.

“Infinera’s demonstrations with JDSU’s ONT 100 G 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 100 G 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) 100 G solution simulates the complexities of live network traffic with a very high degree of accuracy.

JDSU’s ONT 100 G 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 100 G expertise has been central in the lab and the field to help ensure the success of our customers’ trials,” comments Michael Capuano, vice president of corporate marketing at Infinera. “The ONT 100G solution helps test multiple client-side services of 10 GbE, 40 GbE and 100 GbE on a line-side 500 G super-channel on the DTN-X. Ultimately this enables our service provider customers to confidently deploy Infinera solutions maximising efficiency of their optical transport network.”

The DTN-X is one of the industry’s first multi-terabit packet-optical transport network platforms based on the ground-breaking InP 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.
