AJC Deploys Infinera Cable System for Submarine Routes

January 14, 2014

Infinera, provider of Intelligent Transport Networks, announced that Australia Japan Cable (AJC), operator of the AJC cable system between Japan and Australia, has deployed the Infinera DTN-X packet optical transport networking platform across its submarine network. The Infinera Intelligent Transport Network, featuring the DTN-X platform with SD FEC super-channels and integrated OTN switching, enables AJC to significantly expand their cable’s capacity and rapidly deliver 10, 40 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) services.

Australia Japan Cable offers connectivity and bandwidth, serving their customers, with a 12,700 km submarine fiber optic cable network from diverse landings in Australia, Guam and Japan. AJC is composed of a consortium of leading service providers including Telstra, AT&T, NTT, Verizon and Softbank (SFTBF).

Infinera (INFN) provides AJC with the DTN-X platform featuring long haul super-channels with SD-FEC based on the industry’s most widely deployed Photonic Integrated Circuit and the FlexCoherent Processor, supporting up to 500 Gigabit per second (Gb/s) in a single line card. The DTN-X platform is also equipped with 1 Tb/s per slot to support higher capacity 1 Tb/s super-channel line cards for future scaling needs.

"To meet the growing bandwidth needs of carrier, enterprise and ISP customers, AJC is significantly increasing the capacity of our network," said Philip Murphy, Head of Engineering at Australia Japan Cable. "We selected an Infinera Intelligent Transport Network because it allowed us to scale capacity while simplifying operations.”

"The Infinera Intelligent Transport Network provides AJC a mesh network of 500 Gb/s super-channels with soft decision forward error correction, ensuring the AJC network delivers increased network resiliency while delivering the capacity demanded by their customers," said Andrew Bond Webster, Vice President Sales at Infinera.
