Infinera and Verizon Test PMD Tolerance of 500G Coherent Optical Modem

Infinera published a technical paper detailing the results of a record breaking achievement for real-time polarization mode dispersion (PMD) performance of its coherent optical transmission technology.

The IEEE paper presents results of testing conducted with Verizon that measured PMD tolerance of  Infinera’s coherent optical transmission based on its 500 Gbps photonic integrated circuits (PICs).

“Our team, with Verizon, was able to demonstrate a coherent optical transmission that can handle large PMD values with our commercially available 500 Gb/s PIC,” said Dave Welch, Infinera Co-founder, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer of Infinera. “System vendors in the industry today are having a difficult time achieving this. Not all coherent systems are the same. This paper illustrates the robustness of our optical solution and is a tribute to our brilliant teams here in Sunnyvale and in our Ottawa Design Center, developing the algorithms to make this possible."
