Infinera Delivers Vision on Optical Networks for the Cloud at PTC

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - January 18, 2010) - Infinera (NASDAQ: INFN) Vice President of Network Strategy, Chris Liou, will explain how Digital Optical Networks can support growing use of cloud computing and cloud-based network applications at the Pacific Telecommunications Conference (PTC) this week. Mr. Liou will speak today at the session on Networking Challenges & Cloud Computing.

Infinera's Digital Optical Networks architecture provides scalability, flexibility, and intelligence to optical networks, enabling them to support the needs of cloud-based applications for greater bandwidth and responsiveness to changing demands. Infinera's digital architecture is based on large-scale photonic integration that integrates dozens of optical devices onto a pair of chips. Infinera networks have been deployed by large service providers and Internet content providers worldwide.

"Infinera's digital optical network architecture offers the level of scalability, network efficiency, bandwidth flexibility, and reconfigurability that service providers need to meet the dynamic needs of cloud computing infrastructures," commented Infinera's Chris Liou. "Infinera's Bandwidth Virtualization approach enables a new level of dynamic optical resource sharing and flexibility that delivers bandwidth to cloud computing applications when and where it's needed."

The Pacific Telecommunications Conference will take place January 17-20 at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Honolulu. Chris Liou will be speaking on Monday, January 18th from 3:30-5:00 pm. Infinera will host a hospitality suite with Infinera executives and sales staff in the Tapa Tower, rooms 1029 and 1030 at the Hilton.
