— FastSMP, a next-gen network-protection solution designed for Infinera‘s DTN-X platform, delivers what the company claims is the industry’s only hardware-based Shared Mesh Protection (SMP) solution based on the FastSMP processor, a hardware acceleration chip that enables recovery from multiple-failures in less than 50 milliseconds. This hardware chip is pre-installed on the DTN-X and can be enabled via a software upgrade. Infinera has shipped more than 2,000 100G ports to date, each ready to be upgraded to FastSMP.
