Infinera is excited to join Innovation Martlesham, and we’re looking forward to working with and contributing towards this world-class organisation.

“There couldn’t be a better time for Infinera to join Innovation Martlesham. It provides a fantastic platform to share many of our exciting developments transforming the telecommunications landscape with BT and other technology innovators,” says Gordon Wardrop, Sales Account Director at Infinera.

Headquartered in San Jose, California, Infinera is in the business of bandwidth – a manufacturer of award-winning, record-breaking optical and packet-based transmission technologies. We are revolutionizing telecommunications networks with innovative, industry-leading connectivity solutions including high-end subcomponent technology, systems for network infrastructure, automation software, and professional services. Our technology can be found at the heart of the world’s telecommunications networks, from subsea to terrestrial and mobile, and our vision is to provide unlimited services to everyone – everywhere, always, and instantly.

Founded in December 2000, we have constantly challenged conventional methods and ways of thinking, from developing the first photonic integrated circuit back in 2004 to constantly breaking industry records in optical performance. Infinera has introduced many key technology innovations, including Nyquist subcarriers, which have proved to be instrumental in sending higher capacity over longer distances.

Our latest innovation, XR optics, is the next major inflection point in optical transceiver technologies. It utilises digital signal processing and digital subcarriers to enable the industry’s first point-to-multipoint, direct low speed to high speed optical transceiver connectivity. With XR optics, network operators now have an opportunity to reimagine their network architectures in the era of 5G, fiber deep networks, and cloud connectivity.

“Infinera is a really exciting company, poised to bring some incredible innovation in the world of optical networks,” says BT’s Senior Manager of Optical Research, Andrew Lord. “They will be a great asset to Innovation Martlesham and will really benefit from being a member.”
