STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN and SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/12/12 -- TeliaSonera International Carrier (TSIC) and Infinera (NASDAQ: INFN) announced today TSIC's selection of the DTN-X with Infinera Instant Bandwidth delivering 100 Gigabits per second (100G) of optical transport capacity via software control across its North American network. The DTN-X platform enables TSIC to offer its customers up to 100G bandwidth-on-demand and lower its operational costs.
TeliaSonera International Carrier, a leading global IP carrier, operates a wholly owned fiber optic network connecting 200 Points of Presence (PoPs) across Europe, North America and Asia. Customers include content providers and network operators globally for IP, DWDM, Ethernet, voice and specialized mobile services. In North America, its 18,000 km fiber network, reaching 35 PoPs in 23 cities, is the first to deploy the DTN-X with Instant Bandwidth.
"Infinera's DTN-X with Instant Bandwidth gives us a competitive edge enabling significantly shorter customer delivery times for 100G services and allows us to offer one of the most advanced and scalable networks in North America," said Erik Hallberg, President of TeliaSonera International Carrier.
"The selection of the DTN-X with Instant Bandwidth from TeliaSonera International Carrier demonstrates the strength of the relationship that began with our DTN in the 10G era and is now entering the 100G era with the DTN-X," said Chris Champion, Infinera Vice President, EMEA sales. "As TSIC continues to grow their business, Instant Bandwidth on DTN-X provides a flexible infrastructure, one-click capacity and lower operational costs as they face increasing demands for bandwidth in a more competitive environment."
TeliaSonera International Carrier first selected the Infinera DTN in 2009. In November 2011, TSIC and Infinera performed the world's first terabit trial in California based on DTN-X equipment. In June 2012, TSIC was named Best Global NGN Optical Network at the DWDM Awards in Monaco. The Infinera DTN-X platform, featuring Instant Bandwidth, is available and shipping to customers.

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud?

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not.
