Q3'2018

Gazettabyte, 7/30/2018
"Infinera expects to deliver industry-leading growth and operating margins once it exploits the benefits of vertical integration across an expanded portfolio of platforms, said Fallon."
Telecompaper, 7/24/2018
"With the acquisition news, Infinera also gave preliminary results for its second quarter, with revenues now forecast slightly higher than the midpoint of its previously given guidance range of USD 203-213 million."

Q2'2018

ISP Review, 6/27/2018
"Comms provider SSE Enterprise Telecoms has today introduced a new technology platform with Infinera, which harnesses the XTM series for metro fibre optic networks and claims to create a 'credible UK alternative to costly new cable laying projects' by offering a resilient 'dark fibre-like' network to businesses."
Optical Connections News, 6/27/2018
"SSE Enterprise Telecoms chose to partner with Infinera due to its unique combination of layer 1 and 2 packet optical and ethernet services – serving as an alternative to customers laying costly dark fibre cabling. Infinera’ synchronisation capabilities allow for flexibility on the network, not currently available at such scale or at an accessible price point for SSE Enterprise Telecoms’ customers."
Computer Weekly, 6/26/2018
"DWDM technology essentially transmits data from multiple sources on the same fibre using separate light wavelengths. Infinera’s version is based on an 88-channel architecture, with each channel supporting wavelengths that can carry either one or two 100Gbps payloads.
It will give SSE the ability to offer customers either 100Gbps or fractional 100Gbps services over either pure optical, packet optical, wavelength or filtered light services.
'This maximises the potential of our system and increases our capacity and reach,' said Mallon."
Capacity Media, 6/26/2018
"Infinera will be supplying SSE with kit developed following its acquisition of Swedish company Transmode three years ago. 'It will offer 100G services – and multiples of 100G at a competitive rate,' said Mallon."
Broadband World News, 6/11/2018
"Infinera’s Jay Gill Principal Manager, Cloud & SDN Marketing, argues that significant benefits can be gained from a disaggregation of transponders; 'though many existing line systems are not fully open and some operational challenges remain to be addressed.' He says, 'the most advanced network operators, including some ICPs, are already deploying open networks based on this concept and we see it spreading rapidly to other network operators because of the significant benefits to be gained.'"

Q1'2018

Light Reading, 3/20/2018
"Infinera launched its new Infinite Capacity Engine, ICE5. Infinera's Jay Gill explains why the time is right for ICE5 and how it will help network operators solve their capacity scaling challenges. Plus, he'll give us a sneak preview of Infinera's next generation, ICE6."
Gazettabyte, 3/15/2018
"Infinera’s newest Infinite Capacity Engine 5 (ICE5) doubles capacity to 2.4 terabits.[...]The ICE5 is targeted at data centre interconnect and applications where fibre in being added towards the network edge. The next-generation access network of cable operators is one such example. Another is mobile operators deploying fibre in preparation for 5G."
Light Reading, 3/12/2018
"The ICE was first unveiled in early 2016, so ICE5 comes 24 months later and ICE6 is being targeted for early 2020, and that's an R&D cycle that's much faster than the optical norm, according to David Heard, general manager of products and solutions at Infinera. "We said we would reduce the cadence of our product development and we've done that -- we are now at 24-month cycles, down significantly from five-year cycles."
