The Cloud Xpress incorporates Infinera’s Instant Bandwidth technology to allow customers to software-activate line-side WDM 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).
