Infinera Expands Digital Optical Network In Norway

Agder is deploying the Infinera's DTN and ATN InP PICs in Scandinavia
Infinera is expanding into the Nordic region with cable operator Agder Breiband (Agder).

Agder selected the Infinera DTN and ATN platforms for the flexibility, scalability and simplicity of Infinera's Digital Optical Network solutions.

Agder, a broadband service provider in the south of Norway, offers customers high speed Broadband Internet, IPTV and VoIP services. Agder offers services via their partner Altibox.

Agder is deploying the Infinera DTN and ATN platforms in its regional backbone to provide high capacity transport for the voice, video and data services they deliver to their customers. The platforms share the common Infinera Management Suite (IMS) and work together seamlessly, making it simple to deploy new capacity quickly and flexibly. By deploying the DTN and ATN platforms, Agder can offer broadband services rapidly to customers.

"We selected Infinera for our network based on the flexibility of their solutions, ease of use and the ability to provide us with a simplified end-to-end solution for our network," says Terje Abusland, Technical Manager at Agder. "At Agder, we have a small team and it's critical for us to deploy with solutions that are cost effective for our business. Infinera’s solutions were easy to install and our team was able to deploy the network in 7 days."

"We are pleased to announce Agder Breiband as our first customer in Norway," says Chris Champion, vice president of EMEA sales. "We continue to see traction across the globe with our solutions, providing customers like Agder with platforms that enable them to be successful in the markets they serve."

Agder's deployment of Infinera’s DTN and ATN platforms provides them with a network that is easy to operate. The Infinera DTN platform, powered by 100 Gb/s photonic integrated circuits (PICs), is designed to scale up to 6.4 Tb/s of transmission capacity per fibre. The Infinera ATN, a scalable WDM transport platform with multi-service aggregation, brings the intelligence of the Infinera Digital Optical Network to the metro edge.


AngelTech Online Summit - Tuesday 19th May

The health and well-being of AngelTech speakers, partners, employees and the overall community is our top priority. Due to the growing concern around the coronavirus (COVID-19), and in alignment with the best practices laid out by the CDC, WHO and other relevant entities, AngelTech decided to postpone the live Brussels event to 16th - 18th November 2020.

In the interim, we believe it is still important to connect the community and we want to do this via an online summit, taking place live on Tuesday May 19th at 12:00 GMT and content available for 12 months on demand. This will not replace the live event (we believe live face to face interaction, learning and networking can never be fully replaced by a virtual summit), it will supplement the event, add value for key players and bring the community together – digitally.

The event will involve 4 breakout sessions for CS International, PIC International, Sensors International and PIC Pilot Lines.

Key elements of the online summit:

  • Covering key topics of the industries
  • Live 3 hour online summit
  • 10 minute presentations – learn from experts in the industry
  • Recorded product demos
  • Live audience questions
  • Enhanced discussion and audience interaction
  • Video panel sessions
  • Sponsors digital booth (intro video, company content, lead generator, facilitate one on one video meetings with attendees)
  • Live private video meetings between two or more attendees
  • After the live event, monthly keynotes to drive traffic to the event 24/7, 365

Innovation is in AngelTech’s DNA and we are leveraging this strength to bring you an immersive and inspiring online event without the risk of travel during this uncertain period.
