Telstra and transport network provider Infinera have announced an upgrade to the Australian telco's network services for its Asia-Pacific customers, with a 160% increase in fibre capacity to its subsea infrastructure using Infinera's Infinity Capacity Engine 4.

In a statement, Telstra said the ICE4 optical engine would boost the capacity, agility and reliability of its network.

The ICE4 solution is claimed to allow rapid increase of new capacity, providing multi-terabit capacity with low power consumption and high reliability.

The ICE4 solution increased the port density by 140%, Telstra said.

Telstra’s network planning principal Andy Lumsden said the company was committed to continually developing its network to support the increasing demand for data right across the Asia-Pacific region.

“Our commitment to our Asia Pacific customers means we are always adapting and creating capacity where it is needed. This means we are continually working to deploy new technologies that enhance our existing network and complement our latest capacity investments,” he said.

“With Infinera’s ICE4 optical engine, we are deploying the latest technology across our network. We can now provision new services faster than ever before, which is critical in a region when capacity demand on our international networks has almost doubled over the past two years.”

Infinera’s vice-president of sales, Andrew Bond-Webster, said early testing on the rollout had shown good results.

“ICE4, our latest optical engine, enables Telstra to deliver multi-terabit capacity cost effectively with low power consumption and with the reliability required for subsea networks to perform,” he said.

“We have partnered with Telstra for a decade, and work collaboratively to co-create solutions that respond rapidly to changing data consumption and the growth of bandwidth-heavy applications.”

The ICE4 network upgrade will be completed in coming months.
