SUNNYVCALE, Calif. -- Infinera (Nasdaq: INFN) has added to its optical networking research and development team with the opening of a new design center in Ottawa, Ontario. Ottawa is a longtime center for optical networking development, and Infinera’s new center of excellence will tap into the deep pool of experience and expertise available there.

Infinera’s 400 Gigabit/second (Gb/s) photonic integrated circuit (PIC) is in development today at Infinera’s development centers and fab facility in Sunnyvale, California. Future generations of Infinera optical systems will be designed to take ever-increasing advantage of advanced signal processing technologies to process vast amounts of data transmitted and received by these and higher capacity PICs. Dr. Kuang-Tsan Wu, who has joined Infinera to lead the Ottawa team, is one of the world’s foremost experts in designing optical systems using high-speed electronics and advanced modulation formats. Prior to joining Infinera, Dr. Wu led the team that architected Nortel’s 40 Gb/s coherent receivers with advanced signal processing technologies. Infinera is currently advertising for a small number of additional engineers to join the Ottawa team. (Please see http://www.infinera.com/career/ourjobs.html for further details.)

“I’m very excited to join Infinera and work alongside some of the top engineers in the industry and inside the most innovative optical company in the world,” commented Dr. Kuang-Tsan Wu. “The combination of the PIC and advanced signal processing technologies provides an opportunity to create a significant disruption in future optical systems,” he added.
