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.
