Infinera demos 600G per wavelength transmission over 250km in a production network

Infinera Corp of Sunnyvale, CA, USA, a vertically integrated manufacturer of digital optical network systems incorporating its own indium phosphide (InP)-based photonic integrated circuits (PICs), has demonstrated 600 gigabits per second (600G) per wavelength transmission over 250km in a production network with the Infinera Groove G30 muxponder solution. Demonstrated on the backbone network of a leading European service provider, it establishes what is claimed to be a new benchmark for capacity and reach. As bandwidth demands continue to grow, best-in-class 600G performance provides operators with the ability to cost-efficiently scale network infrastructure for data-center interconnect and metro networking applications while improving density, lowering power and simplifying operations and service activation.

The field trial was conducted with the Infinera Groove G30 CHM2T solution operating over the Infinera 7300 multi-haul dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) transport platform. In addition to achieving the delivery of error-free 600G 64 quadrature amplitude modulation (64QAM) transmission over a 250km link in the production network, Infinera also demonstrated 500G 32QAM over 500km of fiber during the trial (another industry first). With industry-leading performance and the ability to support a wide range of configuration options for baud rate, modulation method, forward-error correction and constellation shaping, the Groove G30 maximizes both reach and capacity, providing network operators with a solution with greater flexibility and lower cost per bit, says Infinera.

“Delivering optimal reach, performance and capacity to meet the evolving network demands of our customers is at the heart of our Infinite Network vision,” says Glen Laxdal, senior VP, product line management. “This achievement underscores Infinera’s commitment to continue delivering innovative solutions for network operators with capacity and scale while simplifying operations.”

Infinera showcased the results of the 600G optical transmission performance at the Optical Fiber Conference and Exhibition (OFC 2019) conference in San Diego (5-7 March).
