Infinera, Canalink Conduct Field Test over Subsea Cable

Infinera has conducted subsea field test with Canalink across its subsea cable. 

The test, conducted with the Infinera Infinite Capacity Engine (ICE4) and featuring Infinera’s fourth-generation photonic integrated circuit (PIC), demonstrated the capability to upgrade the cable capacity 13-fold.

The test was conducted on Canalink’s 1,393 kilometer subsea cable, linking the Conil landing point on the Spanish mainland with Tenerife in the Canary Islands.

Conducted across three fully-loaded channel plans at 37.5 gigahertz (GHz), 50 GHz and 25 GHz channel spacing, the test validated advanced compensation techniques and new modulation schemes, the company explained.

The successful field test with Infinera demonstrated that we can achieve approximately 13 times more capacity than we initially estimated on our subsea link,” said Carlos Suárez, general director of Canalink.

“Infinera is committed to bringing advanced capabilities to the subsea market, and we are pleased to enable Canalink to maximize capacity on their systems,” said Scott Jackson, Infinera vice president, Subsea Business Group.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
