Network Automation and Control

Simplify network operations and optimise network resources with advanced network automation capabilities, software enabled capacity provisioning and unified end-to-end network control.

Metro optical networks are rapidly evolving. Fifth-generation 800G coherent optics, typically used in long-haul networks, now support the most demanding metro capacity requirements, such as data center interconnect (DCI). High-speed metro networks are embracing the industry move to coherent pluggable optics such as 400G XR or 400G ZR/ZR+. And coherent 100G optics are being pushed closer and closer to the edge of metro and access and aggregation networks.

Driven by Infinera’s Advanced Coherent Optical Engines and Subsystems, our portfolio is changing the way network operators build metro optical networks at 800G, 400G, and 100G.
