SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 7, 2017 — Intelligent transport network provider Infinera Corp. has announced development of technologies that deliver the highest possible capacity on a single wavelength for varied distances, helping operators extract the best performance from their optical transport networks.

The first milestone drives optical transmission technologies to 100 GBaud, and the second milestone enhances modulation technology to 1024 quadrature amplitude modulation. The announcement was made at the 43rd European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC).

“Infinera uniquely uses vertical optical integration to extract maximum performance from the optical transport network,” said Andrew Schmitt, lead analyst at Cignal AI. “The new levels of performance in baud rate and modulation schemes for terabit wavelengths exhibited at ECOC are a good example of how this approach can eventually result in production solutions with greater capacity and reach.”

Optical transport networks are a critical component of the global communications infrastructure, enabling cloud-based services to reach users around the world and relying on three axes for increasing transmission performance.

“Infinera is delivering optical engines at a faster cadence to help operators achieve exceptional capacity and reach performance on their transport network infrastructures,” said Dave Welch, co-founder and president of Infinera. “As 5G wireless and cable video services take off, Infinera offers significant value to transport network operators by designing industry-first solutions.”

Infinera provides intelligent transport networks, enabling carriers, cloud operators, governments and enterprises to scale network bandwidth, accelerate service innovation and automate optical network operations.
