Infinera says its GX Multi-haul Line System can improve network performance by collapsing dedicated metro and core optical network domains into a single optical domain.

Infinera says its GX Multi-haul Line System can improve network performance by collapsing dedicated metro and core optical network domains into a single optical domain. The system supports both 300-mm and 600-mm installation environments and different sizes of ROADM modules ranging from 1:4, 1:9, 1:12, 1:20, and 1:32 wavelength-selective switches and various colorless and colorless-directionless-contentionless add/drop architectures. Additionally, the coherent technology that powers Infinera’s GX Multi-haul Line System supports Super C-band and Super C-band to maximize the capacity that can be transported over a fiber pair and enables 100 Tbps transport on a fiber pair using coherent technology at 1.2 Tbps per wavelength. Further, Infinera’s GX Multi-haul Line System supports fully automated optical link control using GOSNR methodologies and real-time in-field measurements to optimize every given wavelength on every given span and fiber type to minimize nonlinear and linear noise and maximize performance.

Judge's Comment: “The system's versatility is key to its innovation and value, notably its support for the Super C and Super L band, as well as its 300- and 600-mm deployment options.”
