Infinera (NASDAQ:INFN) has expanded its portfolio of metro packet-optical solutions with the introduction of the Infinera 7100 PSX-3S platform. The 1RU 7100 PSX-3S platform is intended to enable cost-effective access and aggregation of diverse metro traffic types, including high-speed Ethernet and 10 Gbps and 100 Gbps wavelength division multiplexing (WDM).

The 7100 PSX-3S platform is designed to support metro-based Carrier Ethernet services, including business Ethernet, cloud connect, fixed broadband aggregation and 3G/4G mobile backhaul.

The 7100 PSX-3S leverages packet switching software capabilities deployed in tier 1 carrier networks. It can be deployed as a standalone solution or as part of an integrated offering with the 7100 and mTera metro transport platforms, with end-to-end management and software-defined networking control enabled by the Infinera Transcend Software Suite.

Features include:

  • 376 Gbps of packet switching capacity in a 1RU platform with 250-millimeter depth
  • Eliminates 10 Gbps transponders for WDM transport over long distances
  • Zero-touch provisioning and built-in support for Ethernet service activation testing

"Traffic growth at the network edge continues to drive demand for more efficient and flexible metro transport solutions," said Uwe Fischer, senior vice president, System Solutions Business Group, Infinera. "The 7100 PSX-3S is the latest addition to our comprehensive portfolio that spans the edge to the core of the metro network."

The 7100 PSX-3S is currently in customer trials and available for commercial deployment.
