Infinera Joins AIM, Launches Partner Program

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
Infinera Corp., a provider of intelligent transport networks, has become the latest member of the American Institute for Manufacturing Integrated Photonics (AIM Photonics), an industry-driven public-private partnership to enhance the development and manufacturing of photonic integrated circuits.

Infinera will provide access to its Indium Phosphide (InP) photonics technology and establish an InP-based foundry wafer access for AIM.

“As we welcome Infinera as the newest partner of AIM Photonics, today's partnership exemplifies another necessary and exciting step forward in the progression of this important state initiative,” said John Maggiore, chairman of the New York State Photonics Board of Officers. “In New York, state funding is moving ahead on schedule as is the competitive process to identify a TAP facility.”

“Photonic integration has revolutionized the optical networking industry and Infinera has led the way starting with delivering the industry’s first large-scale photonic integrated circuit, which started to ship in networking systems in 2005,” said Fred Kish, Infinera’s senior vice president of development and engineering. “We are happy to be working with AIM and SUNY Polytechnic Institute as a Tier 1 industry member. Through our focus on innovation, Infinera continues to advance integrated photonics to enable service providers and data center operators to deploy networks consuming less power and space while offering the capacity required to transport data over long distances. We are honored to join AIM in developing and designing the high-performance tools the nation requires to remain competitive.”
