Management Commentary on Q4
"Our fourth quarter revenue performance was higher than our expectations, and reflects continued solid demand from customers for Infinera's unique digital optical networks including cable, Tier One and bandwidth wholesale service providers," said Tom Fallon, president and chief executive officer. "We benefitted from unanticipated year-end budget spending by a number of customers and were able to execute to our disaster recovery process following the historic flooding in Thailand."
The company reported these additional fourth quarter highlights:
The company indicated that the development of its recently launched DTN-X remains on track with trials in Q1, expected volume production starting in Q2 and initial revenue recognition expected for the second half of calendar year 2012. Four lab trials with Tier One carriers have been scheduled in Q1 2012, and the company is in the process of preparing for the production ramp of the product.
"Customer interest in our new DTN-X since its launch has been very strong," said Fallon. "We believe this interest is in recognition of the unique advantage that Infinera's integrated platform brings to market -- the only platform offering integrated DWDM and OTN switching functionality without compromise."
