Digital optical networks leverage disruptive technology to combine the art of optical networking with the predictability and deterministic behavior of the digital networking to make networks more efficient. This is done using Photonic Integrated Circuits's (PIC's), a component a about the size of your fingertip that condenses hundreds optical components onto a single ultra-reliable micro-chip. Infinera's implementation of the PIC to multiplex, switch and groom traffic at the digital layer to and from optical interfaces simplifies just about everything else. In fact, PIC's and the digital optical network offer the unique ability to combine the speed of optical networks with the simplicity of the digital domain to change the rules of networking forever. Benefits include being able to build networks that deliver Terabit SCALE, leverage plug-n-play architecture, digital automation and GMPLS based network intelligence to make networks SIMPLE and converge functions and increase density, reduce power consumption to make networks more EFFICIENT.

To bring the Infinera Digital Optical Network to network operators, Infinera leverages a series of PIC optimized network solutions including:
