Infinite Capacity Engine

The World's Most Advanced Optical Engine

Infinera's Infinite Capacity Engine (ICE) optical engine combines our in-house-developed, industry-leading FlexCoherent® digital signal processor (DSP) with our revolutionary optical front end based on highly integrated and ultra-compact photonic integrated circuit technology. With industry-leading vertical integration, ICE provides superior optical performance that enables network operators to transmit more information over greater distances with world-record-setting spectral efficiency.

This unique technology also provides the basis for our Instant Bandwidth solution, which enables service activation with the click of a mouse, dramatically reducing operational effort, accelerating time to revenue, and eliminating many of the challenges associated with network planning and forecasting.
