Press Announcement

Infinera announced that Telstra International has become Infinera’s 100th customer and has deployed Infinera’s 40 Gbps DTN solution for its optical subsea network in Asia.

The deployment spans approximately 9,000 kilometers between Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan and South Korea. Telstra selected Infinera’s DTN solution for its simplicity, scalability and cutting edge technology.

Telstra International is a division of Telstra, Australia’s leading telecommunications and media services company and owner of one of the most technologically advanced IP backbone networks in the world.

“Telstra operates one of the largest and most diverse networks in Asia Pacific. We chose Infinera because it has demonstrated leadership in technological innovation, offering the most reliable and technically advanced DWDM system on the market,” Martijn Blanken, Telstra International COO, said.

Infinera’s DTN platform enables service providers to upgrade existing submarine cables with coherent 40 Gbps waves supporting FlexCoherent. The Infinera solution is upgradable in the future to 100 Gbps FlexCoherent, including Soft Decision Forward Error Correction, which will deliver 7.3 terabits per second (Tbps) of capacity over Telstra’s Reach North Asia Loop (RNAL) fiber plant.

Infinera’s Subsea Solutions have been deployed worldwide for customers, totaling more than 100,000 route-kilometers, including routes across the Atlantic, between North, Central and South America, in the Middle East, and in the Indian Ocean.
