Infinera (www.infinera.com) has completed a successful field trial of 100 Gigabit per second (100G) coherent transmission over a 1,348 kilometer route on the XO Communications nationwide network. The trial used Infinera's new 500G photonic integrated circuits (PICs), which each integrate five 100G channels.

The field trial involved Infinera's 500G PICs transmitting and receiving a 100G signal on a 1,348 km production route between Denver and Dallas on the XO optical fiber network. The route is built with Infinera's 100G-ready ILS WDM line system, which is designed to provide scalable fiber capacity up to 8 Terabits per second. During the trial, the ILS system was carrying 10G and 100G channels simultaneously.
