Infinera Sets Highest-performance 600G Transmission Record

Infinera has announced the successful demonstration of 600 gigabits per second (600G) per wavelength transmission over 250 kilometers (km) in a production network with the Infinera Groove G30 muxponder solution. Demonstrated on the backbone network of a leading European service provider, this achievement establishes a new benchmark for capacity and reach in optical communications. As bandwidth demands continue to grow, best-in-class 600G performance provides operators the ability to cost-efficiently scale network infrastructure for data center interconnect and metro networking applications while improving density, lowering power and simplifying operations and service activation.

The field trial was conducted with the Infinera Groove G30 CHM2T solution operating over the Infinera 7300 multi-haul dense wavelength-division multiplexing transport platform. In addition to achieving the delivery of error-free 600G 64 quadrature amplitude modulation (64QAM) transmission over a 250-km link in the production network, Infinera also successfully demonstrated 500G 32QAM over 500 km of fiber during the trial, another industry first. With industry-leading performance and the ability to support a wide range of configuration options for baud rate, modulation method, forward error correction and constellation shaping, the Groove G30 maximizes both reach and capacity, providing network operators a solution with greater flexibility and lower cost per bit.

“Delivering optimal reach, performance and capacity to meet the evolving network demands of our customers is at the heart of our Infinite Network vision,” said Glen Laxdal, Senior Vice President, Product Line Management at Infinera. “This achievement underscores Infinera's commitment to continue delivering innovative solutions for network operators with capacity and scale while simplifying operations.”



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
