Infinera and Telia Carrier announced the selection of Infineras ICE6 800G solution for Telia Carriers global network after completing a successful trial of the technology on Telia Carriers live number-one-ranked global network, AS1299. The decision to deploy Infineras ICE6 comes after a field validation trial on the 2,396-km link in the U.S. between Denver and Chicago. The trial was performed using Infineras innovative ICE6 technology over an existing third-party line system and demonstrated superior performance and improved network capacity. The trial demonstrated that by leveraging Infineras ICE6 fifth-generation coherent technology, Telia Carrier was able to achieve transmission speeds of 600G and spectral efficiency of 5.33 bits/s/Hz, resulting in a fiber capacity increase of at least 50% compared to the previous generation of transponders. The success of the ICE6 trial highlights the tremendous value provided by Infineras innovative 800G solution, which integrates and performs seamlessly and effectively across third-party line systems in an open environment.
