Midcontinent Communications selected Infinera's DTN platform for its latest backbone network expansion in Minnesota connecting newly acquired territories. Midcontinent serves the Upper Midwest, providing cable TV, broadband and digital home communication services to more than 270,000 residential and business customers in North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota.

Midcontinent first deployed Infinera's DTN Digital ROADM last year. With the recently acquired U.S. Cable territories in Minnesota, Midcontinent's network now spans more than 6,000 fiber miles. Midcontinent also deployed Infinera's ATN metro edge platform to extend commercial services to new customers.

In other Infinera news, the company is featuring the latest release of its DTN metro and long-haul DWDM Digital ROADM, ATN WDM metro edge platform, and DTN-X multi-terabit packet-optical transport platform this week at Cable-Tec Expo. In a live demonstration on the Infinera Express, Infinera will deliver a 100 GigE signal from an EXFO test set to an Infinera DTN network with a 100 GigE service module, and back to the test set to confirm the signal integrity.
