Infinite Capacity Engine

Innovative Optical Engines with Record-breaking Performance

Leveraging Infinera’s U.S.-based optical semiconductor fab, our high-performance coherent optical Infinite Capacity Engines (ICE) have achieved world records in transmission, efficiency, and performance. ICE solutions are built using the latest advances in DSP technology, industry-leading TROSAs powered by monolithically integrated indium phosphide (InP) photonic integrated circuits (PICs), and high-speed packaging. The ICE portfolio includes high-performance embedded optical engines optimized for extreme reach, performance, and spectral efficiency, as well as compact, efficient intelligent pluggable optical engines. Infinera’s embedded and pluggable technologies simplify network operations while driving down cost, power, and space per bit.
