The Infinera Cloud Xpress is a purpose-built, optimized platform family for point-to-point hyper-scale bandwidth interconnect application across regional, metro and campus environments including data centers. It combines Infinera optical engines, which feature the industry's only large-scale Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC) technology, with off-the-shelf silicon chips to deliver feature-specific and cost-optimized optical transport in a remarkably small footprint.
Infinera is the leader in large-scale photonic integrated circuits (PICs), having shipped systems powered by this technology for a decade. This differentiated capability has helped Infinera lead the long-haul wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) and the fast-growing metro datacenter interconnection markets with the regular and optimized PICs respectively.
Infinera has adapted the PIC for newer applications by optimizing and enhancing the photonic technology to fulfill the unique requirements of next-generation WDM networks. Infinera is introducing the application-optimized oPIC-100 which provides 100 gigabits per second (100G) of bandwidth in metro and regional networks. Infinera PICs deliver unparalleled flexibility and efficiency for customers to build Intelligent Transport Network for subsea, long-haul, metro and datacenter interconnection applications.
For Ethernet only, accomodating a mix of access speeds for 10G, 40G and 100G, with scalable, licensable 100G options.
