Infinera GX Solution Receives Telecom Infra Project Award

Infinera won a Telecom Infra Project (TIP) Requirements Compliant Bronze Badge for its GX G42 Compact Modular Optical Transport Solution, validating its compliance with the software-defined networking (SDN) API requirements defined by the Mandatory Use Cases for SDN Transport (MUST) project group in TIP.

The TIP MUST solution, defined by a group of leading operators consisting of Turkcell, Telecom Italia (TIM), Orange, China Mobile, Telia, Telefónica, Vodafone, Deutsche Telekom, and MTN, specifies the SDN technical requirements for an open optical terminal control and management API based on OpenConfig data models.

The Requirements Compliant Bronze Badge acknowledges the Infinera GX G42’s adherence to the MUST open and standard API and positions this solution as a suitable candidate for the open and disaggregated optical network architectures that operators would like to deploy.

Designed for open, multi-vendor network environments and powered by Infinera’s ICE6 800G optical engine, the Infinera GX Series has a track record of deployments over third-party line systems. The TIP compliance award for the GX G42 platform, running the GX Series Converged OS, provides assurance that service providers can integrate, operationalize and manage Infinera’s disaggregated transponder solutions while scaling optical infrastructure with best-in-class technology.
