SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/19/12 -- Infinera (NASDAQ: INFN) announced today that the Dell'Oro Group ranked Infinera number one for the third quarter of 2012 in the global long-haul 100G market as measured by the number of long-haul 100G ports sold . The Dell'Oro Group tracks the telecommunications market and is known as a trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries.
The Dell'Oro Group Optical Transport Report identifies market leaders in various segments of the optical communications equipment market each quarter. The November 16, 2012, edition of the report shows that in the third quarter of 2012, the first quarter Infinera began recognizing revenue from the new DTN-X platform, Infinera vaulted to number one in the worldwide long-haul 100G wavelength market. In this context, the long-haul 100G wavelength market is measured by the number of long-haul 100G ports recognized for revenue in the quarter. The report shows that Infinera accounts for 38% of the long-haul 100G ports sold in the third quarter of 2012, and also shows that Infinera accounts for 22% of all long-haul 100G ports sold since the long-haul 100G market emerged in 2010. The Dell'Oro Group forecasts the global 100G dense wavelength division multiplexing market to grow at greater than 120 percent each year for the next five years.
Infinera's DTN-X platform is designed for global network operators facing increasing bandwidth demands driven by video, high speed data and cloud-based services. For these operators the DTN-X provides a simple, scalable, and efficient solution that integrates five Terabits of OTN switching capacity with market-leading 100G transport capacity. The DTN-X enables optical transport network operators to efficiently deploy 100G wavelengths by delivering the world's first and only commercially available 500G long-haul super-channels. Long-haul super-channels enable operators to scale transport capacity without scaling operational complexity thereby lowering total cost of ownership for multi-Terabit transport networks.
Infinera reports strong traction for the DTN-X around the world with purchase commitments from customers in North America, Europe and Asia Pacific, including Cable&Wireless Worldwide, PIPE Networks, Telefonica International Wholesale Services, TeliaSonera International Carrier and DANTE for the GÉANT pan-European Research Network.
Infinera specializes in Digital Optical Networking systems that are designed to continually improve the economics of optical networking by combining the speed of optics with the simplicity of digital. Infinera is unique in its use of breakthrough semiconductor technology: Large Scale Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC). Infinera's systems leverage PIC technology to provide customers with a service-ready architecture that enables faster time-to-revenue and greater profitability through network efficiency and the ability to rapidly deliver differentiated services without reengineering their optical infrastructure.
