Infinera may have been a late bloomer in the broader optical hardware market, but according to a new Infonetics scorecard, it has gained high ratings for innovation, reliability, service and support.
Service provider adoption of optical transport network (OTN) switching and transport equipment became a large growth engine for three of the largest optical vendors in 2013: Alcatel-Lucent, Ciena and Infinera, according to Infonetics Research.
Windstream is enhancing its ability to serve its growing base of business customers in the Tier 2 and Tier 3 markets it operates in by employing Infinera's DTN-X platform for its Long-Haul Express Network.
Changes in network usage and technology are creating opportunities and threats for network infrastructure vendors, including carrier routing and switching and optical transport systems vendors.
Infinera credited growing acceptance of its flagship DTN-X optical platform by more service providers as a key factor of its revenue growing 24 percent year-over-year from $128.1 million in the same period a year ago.
The Q4 2013 earnings season is underway, and FierceTelecom is tracking how key players in the wireline telecom industry performed.
Infinera reported that third-quarter revenues rose 3 percent sequentially to $142.2 million due to ongoing adoption of its DTN-X optical platform.
TeliaSonera International Carrier now has the capability to immediately double capacity on its North American terrestrial network using the super-channel implementation of Soft Decision Forward Error Correction capability that's now available on Infinera's DTN-X product.
Huawei, Alcatel-Lucent and ZTE continue to enjoy the top spots in the optical vendor domain as more service providers transition their core optical networks to 100G, according to a new Infonetics report.
Infinera credited increased acceptance of the DTN-X platform for boosting revenues from the first quarter's $124.6 million to $138.4 million in the second quarter. Revenues were also up from $93.5 million a year ago.
