Infinera’s 100Gb/s PICs have demonstrated outstanding reliability in live networks, recording more than six years of field operation with no PIC failures. In addition, Infinera’s Just-in-TAM guarantee ensures customers of receiving new client service modules within ten days of order, while the Infinera Management Suite enables on- demand, point-and-click turn-up of new revenue opportunity.


According to data from leading Internet exchanges in Europe, internet traffic in Europe continues to grow at double-digit rates, driven by increasing investment in network capacity in the emerging nations of Asia, Africa and the Middle East, and the increasingly pervasive use of network devices, landline-based and mobile, and the growth of applications like cloud computing and video.


Pan-European operator Interoute has built a large and growing business, meeting customer needs for network capacity across Europe using the speed and simplicity of the Infinera network. Interoute is active in 29 countries it connects with its 60,000-lit fibre-kilometre network.


“Our Infinera network is critical in helping us deliver services to customers when and where they need it very quickly and responsively. The Paris-Lyon route is one of many where we offer very large capacity and so are positioned to meet customer requests very quickly,” said Matthew Finnie, Interoute’s CTO.


Infinera networks also support domestic French service providers. French operator Covage has built a green field long-haul network serving 15 major cities in France with an Infinera network. Covage offers services to service providers and enterprises, with key competitive advantages including the ability to deploy services quickly, and a postage- stamp pricing model which presents customers with a simple-to-understand pricing model and the same prices for a connection whether it is 10km or 1000km.


Covage also uses this Infinera network to support its 15 local broadband networks which are delivering broadband services to French regions. “Our Infinera network has helped us launch a successful business in France, carrying large volumes of corporate and Internet traffic, and also helped us deliver services to broadband customers,” said Vincent Couarraze, Director of


Covage Networks.


Infinera’s next-generation systems are expected to raise the bar further, offering advanced features and functionality, as well as capacity up to 25 Terabits/second. Infinera’s Bandwidth Virtualisation architecture enables the flexible deployment of PIC-based network capacity to carry any available service between any points on the network without the optical impairments or constraints typical of all- optical ROADMs.


“Customers today rely on Infinera when they have large volumes of traffic on busy routes because the Infinera solution is uniquely scalable and reliable, due to the innovation of large-scale PIC technology,” said Infinera Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer Dave Welch. “We intend to enhance these benefits even further as we roll out our new products over the next twelve months.”


Berlin to host compound semiconductor conference


Organised by the Fraunhofer Institute and the VDE Association for Electrical Technologies, Electronic & Information Technologies, the conference will address the future of compound semiconductors in micro electronics and optoelectronics.


On May 23, 2011, Andre Geim, the 2010 winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics, opened the 2011 Compound Semiconductor Week with a plenary lecture on graphene.


Here, some 450 scientists and industry representatives will discuss current research findings in the field of compound semiconductors. An example of one of the key topics of the event is how to improve energy efficiency while increasing data rates in communications systems – often referred to as “Green IT”.


The conference took place in Berlin from May 22 to 26. The conference is organised by the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute HHI, the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid State Physics IAF, and the VDE Association for Electrical Technologies, Electronic & Information Technologies.
