International network service provider RETN is deploying the Infinera XT-3300 and FlexILS to scale network capacity for its large international wholesale and enterprise customer base.

RETN operates a backbone network that spans 33,000km of fibre and connects 34 countries across Europe, Asia and North America. The provider has previously deployed the Infinera DTN-X, XT-500 and Cloud Xpress throughout Europe and Russia. The deployment of the Infinera XT-3300 and FLexILS connects Scandinavian countries to Russia across one of RETN’s main backbone routes.

The Infinera XT-3300 allows RETN to maximise the transmission capacity of its optical network by more than tripling fibre capacity. The FlexILS platform is fully compatible with current and future Infinera optical engines, whilst the Instant Bandwidth allows RETN to easily activate capacity with a few clicks of the mouse and pay for that capacity as it is activated, accelerating time-to-revenue while lowering total cost of ownership. Additional deployment of the intelligent transport network provider’s product offerings will be completed this year to extend the capacity of the densest routes in Europe across RETN’s network.

‘The Infinera XT-3300 and FlexILS are performing better than advertised,’ stated Ilya Nikishin, chief technical officer, RETN. ‘The Infinera solution was easy for our team to install and we can quickly deliver a premium experience to our customers improving their connectivity across Europe up to the border of China and further.’

Infinera has also recently been chosen for deployment by Hetzner Online for its XTS-3300 in order to extend the internet hosting company’s data centre business into Finland (see Infinera XTS-3300 selected for Hetzner online data centre business).
