A New Era of Optical Networking

Infinera's 8x4x1 Strategy

The Evolution of Coherent Optical Transport

From submarine to metro and the access edge, traffic growth is putting pressure on our networks. With bandwidth nearly doubling every two years, service providers are looking for ways to cost-effectively support growth for existing services and new ones for their enterprise, cloud, mobile and residential customers. At Infinera, we are using our deep vertical integration, advanced optical toolkit and industry-leading innovation to bring 800G+ coherent optical transport to the core, 400G pluggable to the metro, and 100G pluggable to the access edge. That’s the Infinera 8x4x1 strategy.

Metro Networks

We are bringing 400G pluggable coherent optics to the metro network while also reimagining its architecture for the future with third-generation Nyquist digital subcarrier technology called XR optics. With advanced system level features and support for both point-to-point and point-to-multipoint architectures, XR optics brings revolutionary transformation to one of the fastest growing segments of the network – the metro.
