The leading optical networking solutions provider Infinera has introduced a significant optical systems innovation, the Infinite Capacity Engine. This industry’s first multi-terabit optical subsystem offers the network operators the clubbed benefits of delivering encrypted optical super-channel capacity up to 2.4 Tb/s and reach up to 12,000 km in the world’s smallest subsystems. It claims to utilise nearly 82% less power than the existing solutions.
To make this possible, Infinera Infinite Capacity Engine is powered by the advanced next-generation FlexCoherent processor combined with photonics of Infinera’s fourth-generation photonic integrated circuit (PIC).
With its huge capacity, Infinite Capacity Engine will power Infinera’s Intelligent Transport Network platforms, which will be announced later this year. The company will use the new engine in existing platforms, however, will also develop new platforms to suit varied applications.
With the rapid growth of cloud-based services, increasing broadband speeds, Internet of Things, 4G and 5G mobile data and videos, the speed requirement is seemingly increasing. In this scenario, Infinera’s Infinite Capacity Engine is the kind of groundbreaking innovation needed to keep pace.
