SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 23, 2015 — Infinera Corp. has announced two new photonic integrated circuits (PICs) for new optical transport applications.
The new ePIC-500 provides sliceable 500G capacity at the hub location, while the new oPIC-100 provides 100G capacity at the spoke location. While the new PICs are applicable across all network locations, they were developed specifically to support Layer T in the metro.
The new models have demonstrated an estimated average reduction of 28 percent in module, 31 percent in power and 45 percent in bandwidth inefficiencies as compared to conventional, commercial, off-the-shelf technologies that deliver single-wavelength or super-channel solutions for 100G, 200G or 400G.
The new Infinera PICs are being developed for line cards and systems that are scheduled for delivery later this year.
