Infinera and FSUE ZNIIS Demonstrate 500 Gb/s Super-Channel Transmission With Infinera DTN-X Providing up to 8 Tb/s Scalability

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/19/13 -- Infinera (NASDAQ: INFN), a leading provider of Digital Optical Networks, announced today the completion of its first ultra-long-haul lab trial in Russia with FSUE ZNIIS, Russia's Central Science and Research Telecommunications Institute and the integrator of the latest technological advances in telecommunications in Russia. This trial demonstrates Infinera's ability to supply scalable, efficient and high capacity optical networking solutions to meet the needs of service providers in Russia.

The DTN-X trial with FSUE ZNIIS took place at ZNIIS' Techno Park in Moscow, successfully demonstrating 8 Terabits per second (Tb/s) of DWDM capacity across 1,175 kilometers. The network configuration provided flexible service add/drop and non-blocking OTN-switching capabilities and enabled a variety of different types of traffic demands including high speed 100 Gigabit Ethernet services (Gb/E), 40 Gb/E as well as widely used 10 Gb/E and 10 Gb/s SDH services. The trial was based on Infinera's DTN-X platform, using 500 Gb/s super-channels and integrated non-blocking OTN-switching. The all-in-one solution helps service providers steadily grow their network capacity up to 8 Tb/s.

"We are impressed by Infinera and the DTN-X solution, especially by its ability to quickly deploy and launch a DWDM line to demonstrate long-haul transmission," said Mrs. Svetlana Yarlykova, Scientific Director at FSUE ZNIIS. "The equipment was easy to operate. We are confident that Russian service providers will see the value in Infinera's next generation solution, offering an architecture that's simple and reliable due to photonic integration."

"We are pleased to complete this trial with ZNIIS," said Chris Champion, vice president EMEA sales. "The success of this demonstration is a milestone for Infinera. We demonstrated that our next generation DWDM optical networking solution, the Infinera DTN-X, is certified and available to the Russian market."

The Infinera DTN-X is the first to deliver 500 Gb/s long-haul super-channels based on Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) and the FlexCoherent™ Processor, scaling transport capacity without scaling operational complexity.
