Infinera Photonic Integrated Circuit Named Best Optical Component Beyond 100G
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/20/13 -- Infinera (NASDAQ:
INFN), a leader in Intelligent Transport Networks(TM), announced
today the company's 500 gigabit per second (Gb/s) photonic integrated
circuit (PIC) was named Best Optical Component Product Beyond 100G at
the Next Generation Optical Networking Awards 2013 in Monaco this
500 Gb/s PICs are a key ingredient of the Intelligent Transport
Network. Embedded in the DTN-X packet optical transport networking
platform, PICs enable the industry's only commercially available 500
Gb/s long-haul super-channels. Super-channels reduce complexity in
carrier networks by simplifying the process of provisioning
transmission capacity. This award follows a similar award last year
for the Infinera 100 Gb/s PIC, named Best 100G Optical Component at
the Next Generation Optical Networking Awards ceremony in 2012.
Intelligent Transport Networks based on PIC technology are deployed
by 109 customers in 67 countries around the world. Infinera's PICs
have exceeded one billion hours of operation in live networks without
This prestigious 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
"We are honored to see the Infinera PIC named Best Optical Component
for the second year in a row by judges at the Next Generation Optical
Networking Awards," said Mark Showalter, senior director corporate
communications at Infinera. "When first introduced, Infinera's 100
Gb/s PICs changed the dynamics of the optical networking industry.
Today 500 Gb/s PICs are a key ingredient of the Intelligent Transport
Network as operators advance into the Terabit Era."

among other things, statements that PICs enable the industry's only
commercially available 500 Gb/s long-haul super-channels.
Super-channels reduce complexity in carrier networks by simplifying
the process of provisioning transmission capacity. These forward
looking statements are based on our current expectations. Actual
results may vary materially from these expectations as a result of
various risks and uncertainties, including, but not limited to,
aggressive business tactics by our competitors, our ability to
