Turbo-Charge Your Network with Game-changing
Optical Innovation


Plug Into Innovation & Turbo-Charge Your Network

From lower networks costs and streamlined operations to faster service turn-up and new service creation over existing infrastructure, intelligent coherent pluggables are paving the way for unprecedented economic value as network operators face ever-increasing bandwidth demand from their end-user customers.

Join Infinera at ECOC 2023 as we showcase the latest developments in intelligent coherent pluggables – the hottest and fastest-growing segment in optical networking.

The Infinera innovation showcase will feature our full suite of Infinera ICE-X intelligent coherent pluggables, where industry-leading performance meets integrated system level functionality. Showcase highlights include a live multi-vendor demonstration of our ICE-X intelligent coherent pluggables in ZR/ZR+ point-to-point and XR point-to-multipoint configurations, with working QSFP-DD and CFP2 form factors.
