Intelligent Coherent Pluggables
Intelligent Coherent Pluggable Networking Solution
Infinera’s suite of vertically integrated ICE-X intelligent coherent pluggables offers network operators the performance, scale, and efficiency critical to drive down network operating costs and to enhance service agility. ICE-X transceivers support industry-leading performance and a unique level of integrated intelligence and system-level functionality, simplifying deployment in a wide variety of network scenarios without sacrificing performance, visibility, or network resiliency.
Most Innovative Broadband Access Solution
Infinera won the 2023 Light Reading Leading Lights Award for Most Innovative Broadband Access Solution for ICE-X high-speed business services over existing PON infrastructure. This award is given to the company that has launched the most innovative product or service to deliver high-speed broadband access via fixed wireless, satellite, fiber or cable. As one judge noted, this offering "allows operators to deliver true business-class speeds and SLAs using existing PON networks but with an overlay of coherent optics."
Simplify transport networks
Leverage industry-leading performance and a diverse range of host devices to reduce the number of equipment and network touchpoints in point-to-point applications.
Reduce capital, space, and power
Leverage vertical integration to enable the highest capacity at the longest distance in point-to-point and point-to-multipoint applications.
Increase/decrease capacity on the fly
Leverage software-configurable capacity allocation to dynamically increase, decrease, or shift capacity in the network for faster time to revenue and an enhanced customer experience.
Eliminate intermediate aggregation
Eliminate costly optical-electrical-optical network elements required to “up-speed” lower-speed traffic.
