Infinera’s photonic integrated circuit wins Best Optical Component Beyond 100G award

Infinera Corp of Sunnyvale, CA, USA, a vertically integrated manufacturer of digital optical network systems incorporating its own indium phosphide-based photonic integrated circuits (PICs), says that its 500 gigabit per second (Gb/s) PIC was named Best Optical Component Product Beyond 100G at the Next Generation Optical Networking Awards 2013 in Monaco.

Embedded in the DTN-X packet optical transport networking platform, PICs enable the industry's only commercially available 500Gb/s long-haul super-channels, says the firm. Super-channels reduce complexity in carrier networks by simplifying the process of provisioning transmission capacity.

The award was established to celebrate and recognize the achievements made by service providers and solutions providers in the optical networking industry.

The judges for the Next Generation Optical Networking Awards said, "The InP (Indium Phosphide) technology based PICs Infinera delivers is far and away the most innovative component available today. In a land of me-too products this company has dared to build something different."

When first introduced, Infinera's 100Gb/s PICs changed the dynamics of the optical networking industry. Today 500Gb/s PICs are a key ingredient of the Intelligent Transport Network as operators advance into the Terabit Era," said Mark Showalter, senior director corporate communications at Infinera.
