4 Infinera Confidential and Proprietary | 4 What is a L1VPN?  A Layer 1 network abstraction that presents a secure, dedicated transport network to the end customer  An alternative to a dedicated physical Layer1 network  May co-exist with other L1VPN instances on the same physical carrier network  Provides end-customer with control & visibility over Layer 1 services between Customer Edges (CEs)  Comprised of a set of CEs & the VPN connections provided by the provider (between Provider Edges (PEs))  Varied levels of network management control & visibility  Standards efforts in progress (IETF, ITU-T)  GMPLS playing a key role in signaling & routing  E.g., draft-ietf-l1vpn-*, ITU-T SG13

5 Infinera Confidential and Proprietary | 5 L1VPN Example  Multiple dynamically reconfigurable L1VPNs can co-exist on single carrier network  Enables secure, self-configurable & viewable sub-network  Streamlines customization of dedicated customer virtual network CNM System CNM System Customer 1 Customer 2 GMPLS

6 Infinera Confidential and Proprietary | 6 L1VPN & Dynamic WoD Drivers  Basis for new service offerings for wholesale carriers  An alternative to leased point-to-point waves  Rapid reconfigurability of L1 services with minimal carrier intervention  Shifts onus of capacity planning away from carrier and into customer’s own hands  Facilitates internal carrier partitioning of common L1 network  Streamline carrier’s servicing of internal capacity requests  E.g., wholesale carrier providing IP organization with self-configurable L1 transport VPN  Dynamic real-time reconfigurability enables many applications  Dynamic load-sharing based on capacity-on-demand  One-time high bandwidth broadcast events  Timesharing of network capacity  Short-term capacity lease
