Inifinera Joins Ethernet Alliance

Infinera is the first vendor completely focussing on optical systems and switches to join the Ethernet Alliance. Seems that this shall give the Ethernet Alliance added muscle as it pushes to 100 Gig Ethernet. Infinera has developed the first optical system offering capacity in 100 Gb/s increments, leveraging Infinera’s 100 Gb/s photonic integrated circuits (PICs). I

nfinera demonstrated 400 Gb/s PICs in 2005 and recently demonstrated the world's first 1.6 terabit per second (Tb/s) PIC. PIC technology promises to be a key enabler for scaling Ethernet into the Tb/s era. The steady advances of Infinera's PIC technology, combined with the rapid growth of bandwidth in the IP network, suggest that the move from 40 Gb/s to 100 Gb/s will take a fraction of the time of the move from 10 Gb/s to 40 Gb/s. Please read more details on teh company press release which dates back to April 27, 2006.
