With Infinera’s XTM packet-optical solution, Xarxa Oberta can provide government networks up to 400 GbE services on its fiber optic network. Xarxa Oberta also tested Infinera’s ICE6 solution on the GX Series Compact Modular Platform, validating its ability to run optical signals up to 800G on its network to allow for scaling in the future.

As a wholesale network operator, Xarxa Oberta operates the leading optical fiber network in Catalonia, offering Ethernet services, dark fiber, and colocation services that provide the region with the most robust high-speed services available. Infinera’s XTM Series equips Xarxa Oberta with a range of innovative packet optical transport solutions to deliver an architecture optimized for the needs of the region. The XTM Series solution enhances Xarxa Oberta’s network, enabling it to extend flexible, reliable high-capacity connectivity with low power consumption to government networks.

“Catalonia is a fast-growing region with more than 900 municipalities and almost 8 million inhabitants, requiring constant investments in our network to ensure we continually provide the most robust communications services to our customers. Infinera’s XTM solution delivers the flexible services required today, and the ability to upgrade to ICE6 will enable us to scale to meet the demands of government networks in the future,” said Joan Cervera, CEO at Xarxa Oberta.

“Infinera is pleased to partner with Xarxa Oberta to deliver cost-effective, high-speed services that meet the growing bandwidth needs of government entities in a very densely populated region,” said Nick Walden, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales, Infinera. “Looking ahead, the successful test validating 800G services on Xarxa Oberta’s network paves the way for an ongoing partnership that will allow Xarxa Oberta to continue to scale and expand their services to meet future demand.”
