Infinera: XR Optics

Feb. 7, 2023
Infinera’s XR optics is the industry’s first point-to-multipoint coherent optical subcarrier aggregation technology, purpose-built to break the inherent limitations of traditional point-to-point optical transmission solutions.
Infinera’s XR optics is the industry’s first point-to-multipoint coherent optical subcarrier aggregation technology, purpose-built to break the inherent limitations of traditional point-to-point optical transmission solutions. Built upon innovation in Nyquist subcarriers, XR optics enables a single transceiver to generate numerous lower-speed subcarriers that can be independently steered to different destinations. With XR optics, wireless network operators will be positioned to dramatically reduce the number of transceivers in their networks, eliminate the need for costly intermediate aggregation devices, and more efficiently optimize optical transport infrastructure for hub-and-spoke end-user traffic flows, Infinera asserts.

Judge’s Comment: “Innovative features unmatched in this category (adjustable speed DWDM access over PON infrastructure).”
