Infinera And Corning Achieve 800G Across 800km

News

Sixth-generation Infinite Capacity Engine can meet growing bandwidth demands for network operators

Infinera has delivered 800 gigabits per second (800G) single wavelength with its sixth-generation Infinite Capacity Engine (ICE6) technology across 800 km on Corning's TXF optical fibre. The success of Infinera and Corning's 800G trial demonstrates the benefits of an industry leading coherent 800G solution with superior fibre designed to help meet growing bandwidth demands for network operators from metro to subsea network applications.

The demonstration used Infinera's ICE6 technology in a Groove (GX) Series platform transmitting 800G using 64QAM with probabilistic constellation shaping (PCS). This record-breaking achievement was accomplished using Corning's state-of-the-art TXF fibre, an ITU-T G.654.E compliant, ultra-low-loss, silica-core fibre with large effective area. This demonstration highlighted the advanced features of Infinera's vertically integrated ICE6 technology, including Nyquist subcarriers, per-subcarrier long-codeword PCS, and per-subcarrier dynamic bandwidth allocation.

“This demonstration proves that 800G transmission using Infinera's industry-leading technology enables a wide variety of network applications and is further enhanced by Corning's innovative TXF fibre,” said Parthi Kandappan, CTO at Infinera. “This achievement is made possible by Infinera's high degree of vertical integration including our in-house digital signal processor design, photonic integrated circuit design and manufacturing, and holistic in-house packaging.”

“We are pleased to work with Infinera to demonstrate how our combined leading-edge technologies can maximise capacity and reach,” said Jeanne Propst, division vice president, product line management, Optical fibre and Cable, Corning Incorporated. “Our TXF fibre, with its high-data-rate capabilities and exceptional reach, helps network operators stay ahead of growing bandwidth demands while lowering their overall network costs.”

ICE6 combines Infinera's sixth-generation photonic integrated circuit with its in-house-developed 7-nanometer dual-channel 800G per-wave FlexCoherent® digital signal processor.

PIC International 2020 - New Dates Announced.

JOIN THE MARKET LEADING GLOBAL INTEGRATED PHOTONICS CONFERENCE AND EXHIBITION TODAY!

In light of the global Coronavirus pandemic, we have rescheduled AngelTech, comprising, PIC International, co-located with CS International, and SSI International to 17TH and the 18th November at the Sheraton Airport Hotel, Brussels, Belgium

In its fifth year, PIC International has become the definitive global integrated photonics conference, providing comprehensive coverage of the industry.

2020 will be no exception and is set to be even bigger and better!

Bringing together 3 conferences, 800+ delegates, 80+ exhibitors, 120+ presentations and numerous networking opportunities, AngelTech is the number one global event covering compound semiconductor, photonic integrated circuit and sensor technologies. With a strong over-lap between the three conferences, attendees and exhibitors are exposed to the full relevant supply chains and customer and supplier bases.

ACT NOW – THIS WILL BE ANOTHER SELLOUT!
