San Jose, Calif. – March 6, 2024, 8:00 a.m. ET – Infinera (Nasdaq: INFN) announced today commercial availability of next generation multi-haul optical line system (OLS) functionality on the GX Series compact modular networking platform, the industry’s most flexible optical transport solution. Designed for both web-scale operators and communications service providers (CSPs), the enhanced GX platform provides the lowest cost and power per bit solution and the greatest agility for network operators.

Leveraging an innovative and efficient architecture, the GX OLS solution features a broad set of multi-haul OLS functionality including carrier-grade features and support for Super C- and Super-L bands which provide 35% increased capacity per fiber.

Infinera also announced today that it has secured initial design wins for its GX OLS solution from leading CSP and web-scale operator customers, with strong interest across its global customer base.

“The release of our next generation GX OLS capabilities represents the completion of our multi-year journey to converge our edge-to-core networking capabilities onto a single platform,” said Ron Johnson, SVP and General Manager of Optical Subsystems and Global Engineering at Infinera. “The GX was purpose-built to provide network operators with a single platform that can be used to support virtually any application in their network, enable pay-as-you-grow economics, and seamlessly support multi-generational embedded and pluggable optics.”

The GX Series’ next generation OLS solution will be included as part of Infinera’s portfolio of live product demonstrations at OFC 2024 to be held March 26-28 in San Diego, California.
