Infinera

Founded in 2001, Infinera has developed the industry's first large-scale photonic integrated circuit (PIC), which dramatically increases the performance of optical networking by putting 50 optical components on a single chip smaller than a human fingernail, and with ten times the data rate of the lasers used in conventional optical systems.

This innovation is crucial in today's market where we're seeing astronomical increases in internet and IP traffic growth, strained networks, and an overwhelming response to greater technology in the form of heavy consumer demand for IPTV, telco TV, video on demand and internet video and other high-bandwidth applications. Heavy Reading estimates predict an increase in household fiber-optic connectivity from 20 million at the end of 2007 to 89 million by the end of 2012. With the growing challenge of having to provide this greater bandwidth at significantly lower costs, it's easy to see the need for a fresh and innovative approach to the photonics industry. Enter Infinera.

Infinera's solution to this challenge has been the creation of the Infinera DTN. The DTN is an optical networking system that exploits the advantages of the PIC to create a whole new type of optical networking architecture called Digital Optical Networks. This results in significantly greater capacity on every line card, more reconfigurable options, higher network intelligence, and much faster installation and deployment times at cost levels significantly below those of conventional systems.

This advance is significant, but we don't like to rest on our achievements. We need to keep advancing technology, searching for better solutions and developing more innovative ways to accomplish our goals. This means finding and hiring the most talented and brilliant team that we can put together. Working among a stellar group of colleagues, you'll have an opportunity to become an integral part of the unprecedented growth and active technological advancement that the optical networking market will see in the coming years.
