8600 Series

Transform FMC and Mobile Backhaul

The Infinera 8600 Smart Router Series addresses the demand for broadband services with a comprehensive software-defined networking (SDN)-ready portfolio of compact, cost-effective and power-efficient solutions for cell sites, metro core and aggregation applications. The 8600 Series offers simultaneous support for multi-service applications in fixed mobile convergence (FMC) access and aggregation networks to protect earlier infrastructure investments. By boosting network performance, integrating advanced synchronization and enabling new fixed mobile services, the 8600 Series is designed to ensure a high-quality user experience in 3G, 4G, FMC and future 5G networks.

Combining the IP/Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) routing platforms of the 8600 Series with optical layer capabilities, Infinera offers the enhanced IP-Optical Mobile Backhaul Solution designed to meet the challenges of the evolution to 5G with multi-layer programmability and optical layer innovations. Leveraging the Infinera Transcend Solution, the IP-optical solution enables multi-layer and multi-domain SDN automation and control for optimal utilization of network resources, improved reliability and simplified end-to-end provisioning. The converged IP-optical architecture enables mobile operators to support the stringent performance requirements of 5G, including unprecedented requirements for synchronization, while delivering optimal capacity, space and power-efficient scalability across the mobile backhaul network.
