Infinera has announced that it is helping network operators modernize multi-layer transport networks with disaggregated routing powered by carrier-class, open networking capabilities.

Adopted by Telefónica as part of its commitment to an open networking strategy as a lever for network transformation, disaggregated routing is set to enable programmable network architecture to optimise innovation cycles, according to the company.

The Infinera advanced solutions portfolio supports the migration toward open and disaggregated network architectures, with a range of white box routers including the Infinera DRX Series carrier-class white box portfolio, Infinera Converged Network Operating System (CNOS), and intelligent control based on the Infinera Transcend software-defined networking (SDN) controller and orchestration solutions.

The company added that the Infinera DRX Series relies on design principles that meet advanced demands for carrier-class networks including synchronization, temperature hardening, and resiliency.

“We are pleased to be working closely with Telefónica to provide innovation in open and disaggregated routing,” said Andres Madero, Chief Technology Officer for LATAM at Infinera (pictured).

“Infinera’s DRX Series enables customers like Telefónica to benefit from a smooth transition to open networking while providing the scalability, flexibility and reliability required to meet the growing demand for 5G and wholesale bandwidth.

“As operators are transitioning from traditional routing and switching to a more open architecture, the DRX innovation is a natural transition.”

Infinera Corporation recently released its financial results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 28, 2019. The company’s GAAP revenue for the quarter was $384.6 million compared to $325.3 million in the third quarter of 2019 and $332.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2018.

“In the fourth quarter, we delivered solid results and achieved significant bookings growth. We also completed the most challenging integration tasks, doubled our synergy savings commitments for the year and returned to non-GAAP operating profitability in the fourth quarter of 2019,” said Tom Fallon, Infinera CEO.
