"In the past few years, ICPs have become a major driving force behind setting new benchmarks in network efficiency and economics.... This article describes the areas in which ICPs have significantly influenced the telecom industry to create a new approach to planning, building and operating networks for improved end-user experiences."
"Sten Nordell, CTO of the Metro Business Group at Infinera, and Ray LeMaistre, International Group Editor of Light Reading, discuss the latest developments in Infinera's Xceed Software Suite and its Layer 1 and Layer 2 applications."
"The company asserts the 100-GBaud transmission is an industry first. Company researchers used 32QAM via multi-channel indium phosphide-based photonic integrated circuits (PICs) integrated with electronic driver and amplifier ASICs to achieve the single-wavelength 1-Tbps transmission."

"Infinera introduced an Auto-Lambda capability to simplify Distributed Access Architecture (DAA) for cable network operators. Auto-Lambda provides auto-tunable 10 Gb/s DWDM automation for optical cable access networks. The capability, which operates over up to an 80-kilometer reach over both single and dual fibers, addresses the need for a "plug-and-go" installation model for service activation."

"We can help our customers use time as a weapon," says Tom Fallon, CEO of Infinera: the company can turn on bandwidth for Seaborn’s customers in 30 minutes. The close relationship means there is not even any need for Seaborn to touch the infrastructure: capacity can be turned up and down fast, virtually at will."

"Where fibre is scarcer, vendors like Infinera offer WDM systems. That loads signals serving all sectors, and the antennae they contain, for a cell site onto one fibre pair. Baldry refers to Infinera’s work with Hutchinson, which provides wholesale 4G mobile services in Hong Kong. ‘The configuration on a lot of cell sites in the network is 18 channels on day one,’ Baldry says. ‘Without WDM, that would need 18 fibre pairs per cell site. You very quickly use a lot of fibre.’"
"This article describes the journey to cognitive networking by explaining its key building blocks, such as software defined capacity (SDC), multi-layer software-defined networking (SDN) control, and transport technology breakthroughs that make the creation and the deployment of cognitive networks a fast-approaching reality."
