Infinera 100Gb/s InP PIC named ‘Best Component Product’ at Next Generation Optical Networking 2012

Infinera Corp of Sunnyvale, CA, USA, a vertically integrated manufacturer of digital optical network systems incorporating its own indium phosphide-based photonic integrated circuits (PICs), says that its 100Gb/s PIC has been awarded ‘Best Optical Component Product – 100G’ at the Next Generation Optical Networking Awards 2012 in Monaco.

Infinera’s first-generation PIC was recognized for the disruptive impact it has made in the optical network industry. Integrating more than 60 components onto a pair of chips, the 100Gb/s PICs are embedded into Infinera’s DTN platform and boasts more than 725 million hours of field operation without a known failure in live networks worldwide.

The firm is now shipping its DTN-X platform, which is based on 500Gb/s PICs. The DTN-X is believed to be the only platform on the market that delivers 500Gb/s long-haul super-channels, and the only platform to integrate 5 Terabits per second of optical transport network (OTN) switching in the same chassis.

The award was established to celebrate and recognize the achievements made by service providers and solutions providers in the optical networking industry. Infinera’s award was accepted by VP of corporate marketing Michael Capuano.

Infinera says that its PICs power the DTN and DTN-X platforms, delivering to service providers globally a simple, scalable, efficient and reliable optical networking solution. “Our PICs change the dynamics of the optical networking industry by dramatically increasing optical transport network efficiency while reducing total cost of ownership,” believes Michael Capuano.
