Mar 7, 2018
SUNNYVALE, Calif. and LONDON, March 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE): Infinera, the leading provider of Intelligent Transport Networks, and RETN, an international network service provider, announced the deployment of the Infinera XT-3300 and FlexILS to easily scale network capacity for RETN's large base of international wholesale and enterprise customers.
RETN operates a backbone network that spans 33,000 kilometers of fiber and connects 34 countries across Europe, Asia and North America. RETN previously deployed the Infinera DTN-X, XT-500 and Cloud Xpress throughout Europe and Russia. The deployment of the Infinera XT-3300 and FLexILS connects Scandinavian countries to Russia across one of RETN’s main backbone routes. Additional deployment of Infinera’s Intelligent Transport Network solutions will be completed in 2018 to extend the capacity of the densest routes in Europe across RETN’s network.
With the Infinera XT-3300, RETN maximizes the transmission capacity of its optical network by more than tripling fiber capacity. The FlexILS platform is fully compatible with current and future Infinera optical engines. Infinera Instant Bandwidth allows RETN to easily activate capacity with a few clicks of the mouse and pay for that capacity as it is activated, accelerating time-to-revenue while lowering total cost of ownership.
“The Infinera XT-3300 and FlexILS are performing better than advertised,” said Ilya Nikishin, chief technical officer, RETN. “It makes a big difference when you have such a reliable business partner to provide innovative and manageable products. The Infinera solution was easy for our team to install and we can quickly deliver a premium experience to our customers improving their connectivity across Europe up to the border of China and further.”
“We are honored to be a trusted partner for RETN as their international network continues to expand,” said Nick Walden, Infinera senior vice president, EMEA. “RETN’s deployment of the Infinera XT-3300 and FlexILS highlights how easy it is to scale network capacity with Infinera’s terrestrial long-haul solutions.”
