Infinera is doubling the base of engineers in its development facility in Bangalore, India, to around 200. The company move is in line with its aggressive plan to increase production and employment to meet growing demand for Infinera DTN digital optical networking solution.

Infinera India is also broadening its areas of expertise. For the past six months, the company has been taking on a greater extent of ASIC and hardware development, and verification work, in addition to its traditional focus areas of software development and system. Infinera India also plans on adding a customer testing facility to complement its existing system verification labs.

"As a result of the high quality and on-time delivery of several major releases that are deployed and carry live traffic in several customer networks across the world, and the increasing demand for Infinera's products, we are adding to our world class team of highly qualified and senior professionals to fulfil the company's growing needs," said Utkarsh Rai, managing director, Infinera India.

"We have built a world-class R&D centre in India that has enabled us to ship an industry-leading platform since the first release with innovative hardware, embedded and network management software in a very short time," said Sudhanshu Verma, VP Software, Infinera.

Infinera's growth plan is a response to strong demand for the Infinera DTN, an optical system that combines scalable DWDM transport, reconfigurable switching capability, and GMPLS-based service intelligence in one platform. In 2005, its first full year of shipping Infinera DTN, the company took first place in the key 10 Gigabit/second long-haul DWDM market with a 20 per cent market share.

"The Infinera solution incorporates significant advances in many important areas of optical networking, including the industry's first large-scale photonic integrated circuits, fully reconfigurable switching, and software intelligence that makes an Infinera network simpler, faster, and less costly to install, turn up and operate," said Jagdeep Singh, Infinera co-founder and CEO. "Infinera India has played a critical, strategic role in those breakthroughs and will continue to do so."
