Cinia Selected Xtera's Innovative Optical Networking Platform for Pan-European Data Center Network
HELSINKI, FINLAND and DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Jan 14, 2016) - Cinia, a Finland-based designer, builder and operator of intelligent connectivity and ICT solutions, today announced the selection of Xtera Communications, Inc. (
Cinia's strategic ambition is to build and expand the cloud backbone to fuel the modern economy in Finland and Europe. Connectivity wise, the objective of Cinia's international long-haul optical transmission infrastructure is twofold: building a high-capacity optical backbone network to connect data centers in Scandinavia and Central Europe, and offering a low-latency route between Europe and Asia via the so called northern Silk Road route connecting Europe to China via Finland, Russia and Mongolia.
"The underlying rationale for Cinia and its main owners is that new investments in optical communication infrastructure create a growth path for the Finnish and European economies. Datacenters and IT connectivity is highly critical for enterprises and organizations. Increased and enhanced connectivity enables new innovations and provides new opportunities for global companies in industrial internet," said Jukka-Pekka Joensuu, Executive Vice President of Cinia. "Partnering with an innovative supplier like Xtera helps Cinia develop an efficient optical backbone network and offer cutting edge connectivity services. Cinia's new optical transmission infrastructure will provide big data, corporate customers and operators with a fast, reliable and high-quality network all over Europe."
Xtera's Nu-Wave Optima™ optical networking platform offers a single solution for multiple applications throughout the network of operators, turning into operational cost savings on spare units, training and management systems. Xtera's patent-protected Wise Raman™ optical amplification technology maximizes both fiber capacity and all-optical reach over any fiber type and vintage, while our flexible interface card, using the latest coherent optical technology to deliver 100G, 200G, 300G or 400G channels, help service providers seamlessly face unplanned capacity demands with minimal time to market and without additional investment.
"The Cinia contract represents a further opportunity to showcase Xtera's technical value proposition for Data Center Interconnect (DCI) applications: ultra-high capacity per fiber pair, long reach enabling site skipping for long-haul data center to data center networks, and operational simplicity offered by common management system, sparing and training throughout the network," said Jon Hopper, President and Chief Executive Officer of Xtera. "Our disruptive Raman-based 200G/400G technology help service providers and operators of Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) face the inflection point where the optical communications industry needs both the fiber capacity and reach that Xtera can provide."
