Infinera’s founding vision is to enable an infinite pool of intelligent bandwidth that the next communications infrastructure is built upon. Infinera is well-recognized in the technology segments of optical wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) transport and packet OTN switching. The company has expanded its architecture featuring advanced automation, convergence and scalability to the metro market.
A Clean-Slate DesignInfinera pioneered a new approach for networks with photonic integration. This provides massive WDM capacity in a small power and space footprint to handle growing bandwidth needs. It also allows the transport system to scale in other dimensions – adding multi-layer packet-OTN switching without any performance compromise while injecting software intelligence. This clean-slate design differs from competitive solutions that use 10 gigabit per second (10G) and 40G platforms that may need to be retrofitted for scale or performance or completely refreshed within a couple of years. We believe that the Infinera Intelligent Transport Network offers strategic business value to customers and protects investments for the next decade.
