ICE7 Optical Engine

Taking Wavelength Capacity-Reach to the Next Level

ICE7, Infinera’s seventh-generation embedded optical engine, leverages a 5-nm CMOS DSP and the latest generation of advanced high-speed optics to deliver baud rates of up to 140+ Gbaud. In addition to enabling single wavelengths of 1.2 Tb/s, it also enables improved wavelength capacity-reach at lower data rates including 800 Gb/s, 600 Gb/s, and 400 Gb/s. This improved capacity-reach significantly reduces the cost per bit, power consumption, and footprint of coherent optical transport. ICE7 will be available in Xponder sleds for the GX Series compact modular platforms.

Deliver 800G nearly everywhere


Using the latest generation of digital and optical technology Infinera ICE7 enables the delivery of 800G services nearly everywhere (3,000+ km). Infinera solution enables network operators to standardize on 150 GHz grid spacing providing seamless integration with pluggable based metro optical networks.

Carry close to 100 Tb/s on a single fiber pair


In addition to high spectral efficiency enabled by PCS-64QAM, ICE7 supports the Super C- and Super L-bands, providing a 25% increase in total usable spectrum (from 9.6 THz to 12 THz). This enables close to 100 Tb/s on a single fiber pair.
