At the SCTE/ISBE Cable-Tec Expo 2017 in Denver, Infinera (NASDAQ:INFN) has introduced Auto-Lambda, a technology designed to simplify distributed access architecture (DAA) for cable operators. Auto-Lambda is intended to simplify 10 Gbps deployments for DAA while reducing spares holding costs.

Infinera's solutions for cable operators include the XTM II for packet-optical metro access and aggregation applications, and the XT-3300, featuring the company's Infinite Capacity Engine 4 (ICE4), for dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) long-haul and metro transport applications.

Auto-Lambda provides auto-tunable 10 Gbps DWDM and features up to 80-kilometer reach, single-fiber operation and host independence. Host independence enables support for both remote PHY and remote MAC/PHY devices.

"With our history of innovation in DWDM access and cable networks, we are excited to directly address DAA," said Sten Nordell, CTO, Infinera Metro Business Group. "Auto-Lambda demonstrates our ability to greatly simplify access network operations for next-generation cable network architectures."

Infinera Auto-Lambda is planned for availability in the XTM Series in the first half of 2018.
