Infinera at OFC: Innovation on Fast Forward

By Jay Gill
Infinera Senior Marketing Manager

What can you expect from Infinera at OFC 2018, the premier conference for optical networking and communications? In past years we have introduced unique technological innovations to maximize optical performance for cloud scale transport networks. This year, you’ll see how we are putting that innovation on fast forward.

Infinera’s unique optical technology and products deliver industry-leading optical performance while enabling the simplicity that network operators need to scale capacity instantly and economically. At OFC 2016, we announced the Infinite Capacity Engine (ICE). Since then, ICE-based platforms have shipped to customers worldwide and they are performing even better than our customer’s high expectations across metro, long-haul, subsea and data center interconnect (DCI) networks. Just ask Netflix, whose metro DCI networks are scaling with extreme simplicity using the Infinera Cloud Xpress 2, and Seaborn, owner of the Seabras-1 subsea cable where the Infinera XTS-3300 is delivering record-breaking capacity over 10,000 kilometers. Or, ask the customers who are deploying Open ICE products over their existing networks to increase their service delivery agility and efficiency.

But, we’re not resting on our laurels. Join us at OFC to hear how we’re accelerating innovations to deliver the next level of optical performance.

Come meet our experts and experience the Infinera Express, our mobile demo truck, offering a full suite of the latest in optical technology that sets the benchmark for high performance optical networks. Featured on the show floor are our latest solutions to address cloud scale networks from short haul to subsea, including mobile fronthaul/backhaul, DCI, automation and software-defined networking.
