Cyprus Telecom deploys Infinera InP PIC DTN-X Platform

Infinera's indium phosphide PICs will be used for the island's 100G mediterranean subsea network
Cyprus Telecommunications Authority (Cyta), is using Infinera's DTN-X platform.

It features 500 Gigabit per second (Gb/s) long-haul super-channels, across the TE-North Cable System, interconnecting Asia and Africa to Europe.

Cyta selected the DTN-X platform to deliver commercial services to its customers for the scalability, efficiency, simplicity and reliability the solution delivers to its network.

Cyta is one of the leading telecommunications providers in Cyprus, providing fixed and mobile telephony to internet service provision and broadband applications. Cyta operates and maintains the ALEXANDROS subsystem, part of Telecom Egypt's TE-North Cable System which stretches 3,600 kilometres connecting Abu Talat, Egypt, to Marseilles, France, with a branch to Pentaskhinos, Cyprus.

The deployment of Infinera's DTN-X platform will allow Cyta to add additional capacity to the ALEXANDROS subsystem, with the ability to upgrade TE North's terrestrial network in the future, in order to serve global operators who rely on Cyta to offer services in the Middle East, Asia and Africa region.

"We are delighted to work with Infinera to deploy the DTN-X platform on this critical international telecommunications route," says Yiannis Koulias, Cyta's Director of National & International Wholesale Market. "We are confident the Infinera DTN-X delivers the most advanced optical transport platform based on 500 Gb/s photonic integrated circuits. The FlexCoherent technology will allow us to optimise transmission performance across our existing subsea fibre plant and meet the demands of our customers quickly and efficiently."

"We are committed to delivering innovative optical transport network solutions to customers like Cyta," adds Chris Champion, VP EMEA Sales for Infinera. "We are excited that Cyta has chosen our DTN-X platform to deliver services quickly and reliably to global operators who rely on this important Mediterranean route."
