New ATN Platform to Be Featured at SCTE Expo Trade Show
SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - October 27, 2009) - Infinera (NASDAQ: INFN) will provide a live
demonstration of its new ATN metro WDM edge platform and its interworking
with Infinera's market-leading DTN platform at the 2009 SCTE Expo, the
leading trade show for the cable television industry. The new ATN platform
brings the benefits of Infinera's Digital Optical Networks architecture to
the edge of the network, providing cable operators with a seamless
end-to-end managed WDM solution. The DTN platform is well established as a
class-leading digital transport solution for cable networks. With the
introduction of the compact and flexible ATN, Infinera now provides an
end-to-end solution for cable operators as well as traditional carriers.
Infinera products are now carrying live traffic across all segments of the
The Infinera ATN live demonstration will be on display at Infinera's booth
no. 15089 at the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers 2009 SCTE
Expo, which begins Wednesday, Oct. 28th in Denver.
The ATN is designed to offer seamless integration with an Infinera DTN
network with a common network management system, enabling end-to-end
service provisioning and service visibility. By eliminating back-to-back
transponders at network interconnection points, an ATN/DTN network delivers
savings in capital expenditures, while extending Infinera's well-known ease
of operation to the metro edge. An ATN network, in combination with a DTN
network can offer end-to-end integrated OTN bandwidth management for
traffic transiting the network, leveraging Infinera's integrated digital
bandwidth management. The ATN also provides a best-in-class, high-density
platform for stand-alone metro C/DWDM applications, including video and
broadband backhaul, commercial service extension and data center
connectivity. The ease of operation and powerful management software
provide robust network management options from the smallest to the largest
networks, enabling operators to minimize network operational expenditures.
The Infinera ATN is a compact, metro optical transport platform delivering
up to 40 DWDM or 8 CWDM wavelengths on a single fiber pair. Utilizing
flexible Service Interface Modules (SIMs) with fully pluggable line-side
and client-side interfaces, the ATN offers flexible configurations to
simplify and accelerate network deployment. The ATN has been designed to
offer best-in-class density and power consumption in a small form factor.
It is designed to support all metro transport services, including Ethernet,
SAN, SONET/SDH, OTN and video services.
Infinera's digital architecture has brought new efficiency to core optical
networks: Infinera's Bandwidth Virtualization™ ensures that bandwidth
resources in the core network can be allocated to carry any available
service between any points on the network, thereby increasing network
flexibility and utilization rates, and minimizing stranded bandwidth. By
interconnecting ATN and DTN networks, the ATN extends these benefits to the
Infinera has already won six customers for the new ATN platform, including
one of the top five US cable operators. With networks in the US and
overseas, Infinera's ATN customers represent a broad range of optical
network operators, including cable operators, telecom carriers, and
Internet content providers.
According to independent market analyst firm Ovum, worldwide revenue in the
metro DWDM market in 2008 was $3.6 billion, with a forecast average annual
growth rate of 13% over the next six years. The introduction of the ATN
enables Infinera to address the full metro market. "Infinera's ATN metro
platform effectively doubles Infinera's addressable market while also
strengthening its value proposition," said Ovum Vice-President for Network
Infrastructure Dana Cooperson. "In-house development of the platform
promises capital and expense efficiencies from tight coupling of the ATN
and DTN in critical areas like service and network management and physical
interworking, but the platform stands on its own as well."
"Infinera solutions provide the simplicity, efficiency speed, and
scalability to help cable providers offer the triple-play and other
services their customers demand today," said Infinera CEO Jagdeep Singh.
"The ATN extends the benefits of Infinera's Digital Optical Networks deeper
into their metro networks. We're very happy to provide our newest
platform, the ATN, to make an end-to-end, tightly integrated Infinera
network a reality."
Infinera at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo
Infinera will be hosting customers and other visitors at our booth at the
SCTE Expo, Booth no. 15089, at the Colorado Convention Center, Denver, from
Wednesday Oct. 28th through Friday Oct. 30th. At the SCTE Expo, we will
feature a live demonstration of ATN/DTN interworking, showing the ease of
use and power of end-to-end circuit provisioning with an Infinera network.
Infinera sales and technical experts will be available to provide updates
