FlexILS Flexible Grid Line System
The industry’s most widely deployed flexible grid-compliant open optical line system features C+L-band support, CDC ROADM, and massive simplicity through automation and design, enabling forward-looking scale with long-term cost savings.
Support today's requirements and be ready for the future with flexible grid, multi-degree CDC add/drop structures, and seamless support for C+L-band.
Support programmable configuration for optimized operation based on performance, spectral efficiency, long span reach, and challenging fiber conditions.
Easily manage both native and alien wavelengths, eliminating vendor lock-in and maximizing operator options, and achieve granular control for native and alien waves.
Double the network capacity
Seamlessly double fiber capacity with non-service-impacting expansion to the L-band.
Windstream Adds L-Band Option to Fiber Network via Infinera C+L Solution
“The technology enables Windstream to transmit optical wavelengths in the L-Band as well as the more conventional C-Band. Use of both bands effectively doubles the potential capacity of Windstream’s fiber.”
