Low Power Design


Low Power Design has always been an important part of the design philosophy for the products and solutions Infinera develops, and in metro networks this is especially essential. Clearly, this has direct economic consequences in the way we are able to offer compact products and solutions with lower power consumption compared to many competing alternatives, but we want to point out the environmental advantages of this as well.

In the infographic below you can learn more about the direct and indirect savings that result from the XTM Series Low Power Design philosophy.

LOWER POWER CONSUMPTION SMALLER ONSITE FOOTPRINT LESS NEED FOR IN-BUILDING COOLING AVOID EXPENSIVE POWER UPGRADES REDUCED CO2 EMISSIONS

Hover your mouse over the blue circles above to learn how each of these direct and indirect savings can reduce operational costs and/or enable deployments in power-scarce areas, while helping the environment at the same time.

In addition to the points mentioned above, we also take pride in offering power consumption data for our products measured according to industry standards (Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions), which makes it easier to compare with alternative solutions.
