ECOC Exhibition 2022

SPEAKERS
PAPERS

More than a pluggable:

A comprehensive networking solution

Join Infinera at ECOC 2022 as we showcase the industry's first Intelligent Coherent Pluggables, ICE-XR, which help operators simplify networks, reduce total cost of ownership by up to 70%, and provide a whole new level of capacity to metro and access networks.

We will showcase a powered setup of ICE-XR intelligent coherent pluggables in point-to-point and point-to-multipoint configurations, with working QSFP-DD and CFP2 form factors and third-party and Infinera host devices, and we will demonstrate many system-level features embedded into ICE-XR coherent pluggables.
