Infinite Capacity Engine
Innovative Optical Engines with
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.
Advanced digital signal processing
ICE optical engines integrate digital ASICs/DSPs that leverage the latest CMOS technology. This enables high baud rates for maximum capacity-reach as well as advanced capabilities, such as probabilistic constellation shaping and digital subcarriers, that maximize spectral efficiency.
InP photonic integration
Infinera’s ICE engines feature PICs designed and manufactured in our U.S.-based InP fab. High-performance InP enables a wide range of optical functions to be integrated, which reduces cost, footprint, and power consumption while improving reliability.
High-performance embedded engines
Leveraging vertically integrated building block components and pioneering advancements in coherent optical transmission, Infinera’s line of embedded optical engines provides industry-leading performance from 200 Gb/s through 1.2 Tb/s, resulting in solutions that provide the greatest capacity per fiber and the lowest cost, space, and power per bit.
Intelligent compact pluggables
Infinera’s ICE-X line of coherent pluggables supports unique levels of intelligence, automation, and programmability that enable network operators to deploy coherent solutions more effectively in a wider variety of networking scenarios without compromising on performance, visibility, or network resiliency.
