Extending the DTN-X Experience to Lower-bandwidth Metro and Regional Sites

The Infinera DTN-X XTC-2 and XTC-2E are purpose-built for extending the DTN-X experience from the long-haul to lower-capacity metro and regional networks. The XTC-2 and XTC-2E offer a smaller form factor with lower bandwidth compared to the widely deployed XTC-4 and XTC-10 platforms. The XTC-2 and XTC-2E support a wide range of client-side interface speeds from 155 megabits per second to 100G, including traditional Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH)/Sychronous Optical Networking (SONET), Ethernet/packet, storage area network (SAN), Fiber Channel and video.

The XTC-2 and XTC-2E integrate with the Infinera Xceed Software Suite, an open, purpose-built, multi-layer software-defined networking (SDN) platform with revenue-ready applications that enables a high degree of abstraction and virtualization of the underlying optical network. The Infinera XTC-2 and XTC-2E extend the acclaimed DTN-X experience to lower-bandwidth metro and regional networks with 100G.
