SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Infinera (Nasdaq: INFN) is accelerating its product development plans for next-generation optical systems to take advantage of evolving market trends and technological advances in product development. The new product program includes plans for the shipment of systems based on 100 Gigabits/second (100G) coherent transmission in 2012 to meet, and accelerate, the growth in market demand for optical networks providing 8 Terabits/second (Tb/s) of capacity per fiber.

The new 100G systems will be based on Infinera’s next-generation photonic integrated circuits (PICs) which integrate the functionality of hundreds of optical devices to provide 500 Gigabits/second (Gb/s) of optical capacity on a single pair of chips (500G PICs). These systems are designed to use coherent detection to deliver an optical system with ultra-long-haul reach, fiber capacity of 8Tb/s, and the disruptive economics of photonic integration. Infinera is also planning to add non-PIC based coherent capability to its DTN system in 2011, to meet the needs of customers who require a 40 Gigabits/second (40G) solution.
