Infinera and Telia Carrier announced the selection of Infinera’s ICE6 800G solution for Telia Carrier’s global network after completing a trial of the technology on Telia Carrier’s live number-one-ranked global network, AS1299.
The decision to deploy Infinera’s ICE6 comes after a field validation trial on the 2,396-km link between Denver and Chicago. The trial was performed using Infinera’s ICE6 technology over an existing third-party line system and demonstrated superior performance and improved network capacity.
The trial demonstrated that by leveraging Infinera’s ICE6 fifth-generation coherent technology, Telia Carrier was able to achieve transmission speeds of 600G and spectral efficiency of 5.33 bits/s/Hz, resulting in a fiber capacity increase of at least 50 percent compared to the previous generation of transponders.
The success of the ICE6 trial highlights the value provided by Infinera’s innovative 800G solution, which integrates and performs seamlessly and effectively across third-party line systems in an open environment.
