Market research firm Dell’Oro Group has ranked Infinera Corp of Sunnyvale, CA, USA, a vertically integrated manufacturer of digital optical network systems incorporating its own indium phosphide-based photonic integrated circuits (PICs), number one for Q1/2013 in the global long-haul 100G wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) market, as measured by the number of long-haul 100G ports sold.  As a result, Infinera retains the number one market share position in long-haul 100G since the DTN-X entered the market in Q3/2012.
 
The Dell‘Oro Group reports the market leaders in the long-haul 100G WDM market by the number of long-haul 100G ports recognized for revenue in the quarter. According to the research, Infinera accounts for 34% of the long-haul 100G WDM ports sold in Q1/2013, and also for 29% of all long-haul 100G ports sold since the long-haul 100G market emerged in 2010.  The Dell’Oro Group forecast projects 100G revenue to grow at a 47% CAGR between 2012 and 2017, reaching $5.6bn and contributing 60% of WDM capacity shipments by 2017.
 
Infinera reports strong traction for the DTN-X around the world with purchase commitments from 27 customers through Q1/2013 in North America, Europe and Asia Pacific, including BICS, CenturyLink, Cable&Wireless Worldwide, KDDI, Telefonica International Wholesale Services, TeliaSonera International Carrier and DANTE for the GÉANT pan-European Research Network.
 
Infinera says that its DTN-X platform is designed for global network operators facing increasing bandwidth demands driven by video, high speed data and cloud-based services.  It provides a simple, scalable, and efficient solution that integrates optical transport network (OTN) switching capacity with multi-Terabit transport capacity. The DTN-X enables network operators to efficiently deploy the world’s first and only commercially available 500G long-haul super-channels.  Long-haul super-channels enable operators to scale transport capacity without scaling operational complexity.
