Infinite Capacity Engine
The World's Most Advanced Optical Engine
Infinera's Infinite Capacity Engine (ICE) optical engine combines our in-house-developed, industry-leading FlexCoherent® digital signal processor (DSP) with our revolutionary optical front end based on highly integrated and ultra-compact photonic integrated circuit technology. With industry-leading vertical integration, ICE provides superior optical performance that enables network operators to transmit more information over greater distances with world-record-setting spectral efficiency.
This unique technology also provides the basis for our Instant Bandwidth solution, which enables service activation with the click of a mouse, dramatically reducing operational effort, accelerating time to revenue, and eliminating many of the challenges associated with network planning and forecasting.
Indium phosphide (InP)
InP-based photonics integrate hundreds of advanced optical functions to deliver up to 800G per wavelength.
Enabling more capacity and longer reach while reducing cost and power consumption.
Efficient super-channels reduce fiber complexity while increasing fiber efficiency.
Pack wavelengths tightly and reliably to maximize spectral efficiency.
