Infinera adds 400G pluggables to range
Infinera has announced the availability of metro-optimised 400G pluggable optics-based solutions for the XTM Series and GX Series Compact Modular Platforms, designed to bring enhanced flexibility and economics to metro networks.
The new capabilities complement the company’s 600G/800G embedded optics technology, enabling network operators to cost-effectively scale their networks with optimised optical networking solutions from the edge to the core.
The new XTM Series Enhanced 400G Flexponder module and GX Series CHM1R Open ROADM-compliant dual-400G sled will support a broad range of 400G pluggable optics, including 400G XR/ZR+ optics.
In addition to point-to-point applications, the XTM and GX will leverage the point-to-multipoint capabilities of XR optics to substantially simplify networks and drive down costs. The combination of 400G support across both platforms enables network operators to support optimised solutions across both 300mm- and 600mm-deep network infrastructure with industry-leading low power and high density.
