Deployed on the Infinera DTN-X platform across MBC s terabit network, Infinera PXM allows MBC to interconnect 100 gigabit Ethernet (GbE) router ports at various university sites and allows access to the Internet network via Ashburn.
By adding Infinera PXM on our Intelligent Transport Network, we now have the benefit of packet-awareness which enables a significant reduction in expensive router ports required to offer a portfolio of high-capacity Ethernet services, said Tad Deriso, President & CEO of MBC.
The Infinera PXM offers integrated Ethernet and MPLS switching functionality over WDM super-channels to deliver dynamic, flexible packet transport services.
Reportedly, the Infinera PXM is designed to enable network operators to benefit from a portfolio of advanced services-based Carrier Ethernet and MPLS technologies that are intended to result in decreased network costs and statistical multiplexing with packet aggregation and transport port consolidation.
