Powering Tomorrow’s Cloud Experience
The exponential growth of streaming cloud content delivery and the transition of consumer and business services to the cloud continue relentlessly and pose a challenge for high-capacity network connectivity. Since the heart of all cloud services is the network, the success of cloud services depends on the network that interconnects data centers and the network that connects end-users to the services hosted there. Infinera enables Internet Content Providers, Communications Service Providers, Carrier Neutral Providers, and enterprises to meet the surging demand for high speed connectivity with comprehensive mobile and fixed connectivity solutions. Infinera data center interconnect solutions provide the programmable, high speed, secure bandwidth that cloud applications require with best-in-class low power consumption, high density, and flexibility for data center connectivity at the lowest total cost.
The Infinera Groove G30 Network Disaggregation Platform (NDP) is an innovative
1RU modular open transport solution for cloud and data center networks that can be
equipped as a muxponder (MUX) terminal solution, as an Open Line System (OLS)
optical layer solution, and as a mixed configuration. Purpose-built for interconnectivity
applications, the disaggregated Groove G30 delivers industry-leading density, flexibility,
and low power consumption.
With innovative three-tier modular open plug-and-play capabilities, the Groove G30 can be customized for any required application based on the installation of specific modules, sleds, and pluggables into the common Groove G30 chassis. Infinera supports a wide range of modules for DWDM transmission, muxponder, and line terminal applications. Open Line System (OLS) applications are enabled with optical multiplexer structures, amplifiers, and additional active optical layer functions such as protection switching, integrated OTDR, or tunable dispersion compensation. Designed to meet the scalability requirements of network operators now and into the future, the Groove G30 features the industry’s most compelling pay-as-you-grow disaggregated approach that enables the lowest start-up costs, reduced equipment sparing costs, and cost-effective scalability.
Purpose-built as a disaggregated and compact optical layer to manage surging data traffic volumes, the Infinera OLS solution is based on the Groove G30 NDP and leverages revolutionary Infinera Pluggable Optical Layer innovation to support coherent and direct detect (PAM4) applications. Key benefits of the modular solution include:
The Groove G30 MUX achieves a leading performance advantage by leveraging the latest innovations in high speed optics, photonic/electrical integration, and silicon photonics. By cost effectively powering a better end-user cloud experience and managing growing data traffic volumes to and between data centers, the Groove G30 MUX sets new benchmarks in network performance, including:
The Groove G30 NDP enables network and data center operators to build their own customized, scalable, secure, and simple to operate transmission and optical line solutions with best-in-class functions, all enabled through open APIs. The Groove G30 NDP reinforces Infinera’s commitment to open solutions and delivers on the promise of disaggregation. Optimized to address the staggering growth in video and DCI traffic, the Groove G30 NDP brings game-changing advantages through the latest innovations to enable an unrivaled connectivity solution and achieve new benchmarks in enhanced network performance. Infinera connectivity solutions power a better cloud experience.
