Infinera Announces ICE6

Infinera announced the details and schedule for ICE6, its next-generation coherent engine featuring 800G operation. It is a 1.6T monolithic PIC co-packaged with a new internally developed 7nm DSP.

“Infinera has historically been a leader in photonic integration and at the forefront of developing solutions in house, exemplified by high-volume shipments of multiple generations of coherent engines,” said Andrew Schmitt, Directing Analyst, Optical Networking at Cignal AI. “ICE6 should demonstrate similar leadership, with levels of optical performance that deliver greater capacity and reach for network operators.”
