To exploit machine learning and artificial intelligence, optical transmission systems require greater automation, finds Andy Extance

Infinera submarine field trial reaches record-breaking 6.21b/s/Hz

Infinera has successfully completed of a series of submarine field trials over MAREA, a 6,600km submarine cable between Virginia Beach, Virginia and Bilbao, Spain. The trials used the company’s fourth-generation Infinite Capacity Engine (ICE4) advanced coherent technology to help achieve new records for trans-Atlantic real-time spectral efficiency.

Dramatically boost network resilience with hardware-accelerated SMP

Service providers are moving towards mesh-based transport networks, and the latest technological advance is the standards-based Shared Mesh Protection, which leverages an intelligent GMPLS control plane so a meshed transport network can recover from multiple local and network-wide failures while lowering costs by avoiding the need to dedicate backup bandwidth for every active circuit. This article will examine hardware-accelerated Shared Mesh Protection as a means of increasing the network resiliency without incurring additional fiber-related expenses.
