Two Records For Infinera Trans-Atlantic Trial
ICE6 Trial on MAREA trans-Atlantic cable yields 30 Tb/s capacity and the first 700 Gb/s wavelength
Over the past few weeks, Infinera has had the opportunity to perform a submarine network field trial over the MAREA trans-Atlantic cable with its ICE6 optical engine, which has a headline data rate of 800 Gb/s over terrestrial network routes.
The trial produced two record results: 30 Tb/s trans-Atlantic capacity and the first trans-Atlantic 700 Gb/s Wavelength
MAREA is described by Infinera as the benchmark for trans-Atlantic cable systems, as it was specifically designed for high-performance coherent transmission - it is the cable system on which every submarine network vendor's implementations will be measured.
The ICE6 results can be put into two categories, says Infinera: 'Hero' results with no additional deployment margin, and 'deployable' results where there is allocated margin to allow real services to be deployed at this data rate or with this total capacity.
MAREA 'hero' results over 6,640 km are: 30 Tb/s of total capacity on a single fibre pair, 700 Gb/s data rate per wavelength. MAREA 'deployable' results over 6,640 km are: 28 Tb/s of total capacity on a single fibre pair and up to 650 Gb/s data rate per wavelength
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
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.
