A quick look at some news from vendors so far this week, a Finnish deal for Calix, two from Southeast Asia for BTI Systems, and a big milestone for Infinera:
Calix Networks (NYSE:CALX, news, filings) won a deal up in Scandinavia this week with the Finnish co-op Verkko-Osuuskunta Kuuskaista. Kuuskaista (I think my spell-checker just had a siezure) is using the company's E7-2 and E7-20 ESAPs in central Finland with the help of channle partner K7K Active Oy. The GPON open access network will deliver speeds of up to 1Gbps for each home and business.
BTI Systems has won a pair of contracts out in Southeast Asia. Global colocation giant Equinix is using their gear in Singapore to interconnect its datacenters in the first phase of a broader deployment. And in Cambodia, the local provider S.I Net has deployed their solutions for a nationwide multiservice network. They're moving from SDH to a converged Ethernet, packet-optical, DWDM infrastructure.
And Infinera says that its flagship Photonic Integrated Circuits have passed the 1 billion hour milestone for failure-free operation. That's a stat that goes back to late 2004 for both the DTN and DTN-X across 109 customers in 67 countries. I'd hate to be the guy that has to turn that counter back to zero one day.
