Infinera And Telia Carrier Complete Autonomous Network Field Trial

News

EU Celtic-Plus project SENDATE trial demonstrates intelligent transponder (AIT) technology

Infinera and Telia Carrier have announced the successful completion of an industry-first production network field trial demonstrating autonomous intelligent transponder (AIT) technology.

The live field trial, performed in the framework of the EU Celtic-Plus project SENDATE, demonstrated the ability of fibre optic transmission systems to autonomously adapt to changing network conditions in real time to support optimal service quality and performance while simplifying operations.

“As mission-critical Internet of Things applications drive increased demand for low-latency, high-quality network connectivity - at all times - the underlying optical infrastructure will require a new level of responsiveness and adaptability,” said Mattias Fridström, chief evangelist of Telia Carrier, a company based in Sweden. “We continue to team with industry-leading innovators like Infinera to push the boundaries of optical layer automation to help us deliver a best-in-class customer experience under any network conditions.”

The proof of concept field trial was performed using AIT prototype technology developed by Infinera as part of its ongoing research and development initiatives. The AIT trial was conducted on a live 1,500 km fibre route in Telia Carrier's backbone network connecting Munich, Zurich, Strasbourg and Frankfurt. The trial featured multiple use cases that tested AIT capabilities under varied channel conditions and quality impairments, including the impact of neighbour channels, ageing components and the adding and dropping of channels.

In all cases, the AIT autonomously adapted transmission parameters such as modulation schemes, minimizing network cost and maximizing performance, including total fibre capacity throughput and spectral efficiency.

“We are pleased to extend our long-standing collaboration with Telia Carrier, a company distinguished by their unwavering commitment to redefining customer value through cutting-edge technology innovation,” said Parthi Kandappan, CTO at Infinera. “This field trial reinforces the importance of advancing the agility of high-capacity infrastructure through innovation in cognitive networking, one of the pillars of our vision of the Infinite Network.”

At the Optical fibre Conference and Exhibition (OFC) in San Diego, California this week, Infinera will show its ongoing technology collaboration with Telia Carrier, including results from recent field trials featuring AIT technology, 600 gigabits per second transmission and real-time optical performance awareness based on the Infinera Aware solution.



CS International 26-27 March 2019, Sheraton Airport Hotel, Brussels

In its ninth year, CS International will continue to provide timely, comprehensive coverage of every important sector within the compound semiconductor industry. Presentations are split into 5 key themes and each industry key theme will be delivered by a keynote presentation from a leading industry figure as well as a market analyst presentation tailored to the theme. Together, the talks will detail breakthroughs in device technology; offer insights into the current status and the evolution of compound semiconductor devices; and provide details of advances in tools and processes that will help to drive up fab yields and throughputs. Attendees at the two-day conference will gain an up-to-date overview of the status of the CS industry, and have opportunities to meet many other key players within this community.
