Are you ready for the Terabit Era? The Infinera DTN-X is. Built upon the design principles of the highly successful Infinera DTN platform, the Infinera DTN-X P-OTN platform brings the scale, simplicity and efficiency of the Intelligent Transport Network™ into the Terabit Era. Featuring large scale Photonic Integrated Circuits (PIC), built-in OTN (ITU G.709) switch with 1 Gb/s granularity and GMPLS based network intelligence that enables dynamically protected mesh networks, the DTN-X delivers the next step function in optical networking. The DTN-X was designed with investment protection in mind, including programmable coherent technology so operators can optimize their fiber assets, scaling to 5 Tb/s per bay today, and to 1 Tb/s of slot capacity allowing 10 Tb/s per bay and 100Tb/s in a multi-bay configuration in the future. Finally, this converged DWDM transport, OTN switching and future MPLS switching platform consumes less power and less space to deliver frugal network economics without compromising the ability of the network to achieve its full potential.
The major features of the platform are:
