The Infinera DTN-X delivers 500 Gigabit per second (Gb/s) long haul super-channels, enabling BICS to deliver flexible and cost effective 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) services.
BICS offers international wholesale solutions to any communication service provider through a network of 100 points of presence in 55 cities and 33 countries across the globe.
The Infinera DTN-X platform was selected to upgrade BICS’ pan-European network, stretching across 9,000km of fibre in Europe and linking through a cable landing station in Marseille into the EIG & SEA-ME-WE 4 submarine cable systems. BICS selected the Infinera DTN-X for the scalability, efficiency and simplicity the solution delivers.
‘We are delighted to be working with leading carriers like BICS to upgrade their networks with the DTN-X for 500G up to multi-Terabit capacities,’ said Chris Champion, Infinera VP, EMEA sales. ‘We’re seeing increasing traction for the DTN-X, evidenced by the purchase commitments we have received from 27 customers around the world for this new platform, out of our 115 total customers.’
