Yahoo! JAPAN Deploys Infinera Cloud Xpress for Data Center Interconnect

06 December 2016

Infinera, a provider of Intelligent Transport Networks, announced that Yahoo! JAPAN, a leading Japanese internet company, deployed the Infinera Cloud Xpress to interconnect its data centers in Osaka. The Cloud Xpress enables Yahoo! JAPAN to interconnect data centers with hyper-scale density, operational simplicity and low power consumption to deliver internet services to its customers.

Yahoo! JAPAN is one of the largest and most innovative internet portal sites in Japan. Due to increased internet traffic demands from both residential and business services, Yahoo! JAPAN has experienced growth in key cities like Tokyo and Osaka, driving the need for more capacity between its data center facilities.

Working closely with Infinera partner ITOCHU Techno-Solutions Corporation, Yahoo! JAPAN deployed the Infinera Cloud Xpress to address the need for more capacity. ITOCHU Techno-Solutions Corporation provides Yahoo! JAPAN information technology solutions and data center maintenance services. Yahoo! JAPAN has now deployed the Cloud Xpress and Infinera XTM Series in its metro networks.

With the Cloud Xpress, Yahoo! JAPAN benefits from Infinera’s unique photonic integrated circuit technology, which delivers a 500-gigabit-per-second (Gb/s) super-channel over 150 kilometers (km) without additional multiplexers and amplifiers. The Cloud Xpress incorporates Infinera’s Instant Bandwidth technology to allow customers to software-activate line-side bandwidth in 100 Gb/s increments as and when needed, closely matching their end-customer demands. In addition, the Cloud Xpress is designed for plug-and-play installation with simplified provisioning and support for data center automation using open software-defined networking (SDN) application programming interfaces (APIs).

The Infinera Cloud Xpress family is designed to deliver cloud-optimized wavelength division multiplexing solutions to cloud service providers, internet content providers, Internet Exchange service providers, enterprise and other large-scale data center operators. The Cloud Xpress family offers customers the choice of 10 gigabit Ethernet (GbE), 40 GbE and 100 GbE client interfaces to meet their specific requirements. Infinera recently introduced the Cloud Xpress 2, based on the Infinite Capacity Engine, scheduled to be available in the first quarter of 2017.
