Infinera Appoints Scott Jackson to Head Subsea Business Group

Infinera appointed Scott Jackson as vice president, responsible for overseeing the Infinera Subsea Business Group.

Mr. Jackson was involved in undersea fiber systems from their genesis, including the first transoceanic optical cable, TAT-8, connecting North America and Europe. In fact, he spoke the first words carried on fiber between continents.


Mr. Jackson’s experience includes 18 years at Bell Labs Submarine Systems, later Tyco Undersea Systems, where as a managing director, he led development of undersea repeaters and later undersea terminal equipment. Designs for the first optically-amplified repeaters, the first terminals incorporating forward error correction (FEC), the first remote-pump terminals, and the first wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) terminals all came from his group. Mr. Jackson also served as vice president and general manager for the Finisar NJ Transmission Technology Center, vice president of engineering for Kodeos Communications, vice president of engineering for Defense Photonics Group, and most recently, chief technical officer for 4D Security Solutions.
