Infinera breaks subsea spectral efficiency record in Marea trials

Wednesday 26 September 2018 | 14:47 CET | News
Infinera has successfully completed a series of submarine field trials over Marea, a 6,600 km trans-Atlantic cable between Virginia Beach, Virginia and Bilbao, Spain. The trials used Infinera's fourth-generation Infinite Capacity Engine (ICE4) technology to achieve new records for trans-Atlantic real-time spectral efficiency of 6.21 bits per second per hertz (b/s/Hz) over 6,644 km, translating to a fibre capacity of 26.2 terabits per second (Tbps), and 4.46 b/s/Hz over 13,210 km for 18.6 Tbps fibre capacity.
