Photonic Integrated Circuits
Hundreds of Advanced Optical Functions in a Tiny Package
Built on an ultra-high-performance indium phosphide (InP) substrate, each photonic integrated circuit (PIC) incorporates tuneable lasers, photodiodes, modulators, demodulators, splitters, combiners, attenuators, and amplifiers to deliver up to 800G per wavelength. This technology also enables multiple lasers to be combined on a single component, providing additional performance benefits such as SD-FEC gain sharing and improved spectral efficiency. Our PIC technology, combined with our in-house-developed FlexCoherent® DSP, provides the foundation for our industry-leading Infinite Capacity Engine (ICE) technology.
Integrates components to deliver hundreds of functions that enable up to 800G per wavelength.
Fine-grained carrier control enables operation over any line system.
Efficient super-channels reduce fiber complexity while increasing fiber efficiency.
Routable and sliceable
Route N x 100G circuits within a super-channel in any direction over any distance with individual coherent modulation profiles.
Innovation on Fast Forward
The Infinite Capacity Engine family of optical engines delivers scalable multi-terabit super-channel capacity and industry-leading capacity-reach performance from metro to subsea distances. With each new generation, ICE incorporates cutting-edge innovations and step function increases in capacity, enabling network operators to scale their networks and keep pace with relentless bandwidth demand.
