    New Contract Win

    XO Communications Deploys Infinera Intelligent Transport Network for 100G Nationwide

    SUNNYVALE, CA and HERNDON, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/22/14 -- Infinera (NASDAQ: INFN), provider of Intelligent Transport Networks, and XO Communications (XO) announced the deployment of the Infinera DTN-X packet optical transport networking platform capable of delivering high bandwidth network services up to 100G across the XO nationwide network. The multi-terabit Infinera DTN-X platform also enables XO to support high-performance cloud, data and video applications nationally.

    With the Infinera DTN-X platform, XO benefits from the industry's only commercially available single-card 500 gigabit per second (Gb/s) FlexCoherent super-channel solution. These 500 Gb/s super-channels enable XO to rapidly deliver more than nine terabits per second (Tb/s) of transmission capacity on a single fiber. To put that in perspective, nine Tb/s is more capacity than the entire Internet in 2005, and is enough bandwidth to simultaneously stream over one million high definition videos bi-directionally.

    The high capacity super-channels are enabled by 500 Gb/s photonic integrated circuits (PICs) developed and fabricated by Infinera -- the only supplier delivering 500 Gb/s of transmission capacity from a single line card today. PICs enable the DTN-X platform to integrate wavelength division multiplexing super-channel transmission with up to 12 Tb/s of non-blocking optical transport network switching, providing seamless scaling as traffic requirements grow in the future. The DTN-X also features an SDN-ready application programming interface that enables the automation of network operations to reduce both operational cost and service delivery times.

    "The rapid growth of network traffic from mobile data, Internet video and cloud-based services puts tremendous stress on all areas of the XO network infrastructure," said Steve Nocella, XO Communications' CTO. "The Infinera Intelligent Transport Network will

      mkt response is at best tepid,earnings are next,if everything is good and this fails to break that 9.60 area afterwards it should be setting off alarm bells,if it does break it could be a nice run to 10

    • nice before earnings announcement! can't wait to hear about a beat and guidance. Both should be positive

    • Depending on the timing of this deployment, it might be baked into the share price as the previously mentioned boost to Q2 and Q3 revenues that kicked them up into the $170M/Q range.

      A nice win, in any case. Infinera seems to be doing a good job capturing a healthy portion of the US contracts ex- the RBOC's. Winning an extremely cost conscious telecom like XO that's been going through a lot of restructuring and employment trimming seems to bode well for the DTN-X's chances someday, in India and Australia. Alcatel may have signed up to take a bath with that Verizon win back in January.

      That sounds like a huge win. Nice to see that win ahead of the earnings call. Gives the idiot analysts something to talk about

      Sentiment: Strong Buy
