DZS, a global leader of access, optical and AI-driven cloud software solutions, and Infinera, a global supplier of innovative open optical networking solutions, today announced that the two companies are working together to bring game-changing new integrated ICE-X Coherent Pluggable solutions to market for mobile xHaul and ultra high-speed symmetrical business services from 25GE to 400GE. The solution, which will be on display at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exhibition (OFC) taking place in San Diego March 25 – 28, combines the recently introduced DZS Saber 2200 Coherent Ethernet Switch and Infinera’s innovative intelligent coherent pluggables to enable service providers to reap the benefits of XR Optics, which include reduced CapEx and OpEx; greater operational efficiencies; and improved network performance.

“This innovative solution combines the DZS Saber 2200’s ultra-compact long reach, low latency Layer 2 switching capabilities with Infinera’s Open XR optics-enabled solution to deliver a powerful optical transmission offering capable of supporting any deployment scenario,” said Miguel Alonso, . Chief Product Officer, DZS. “Now service providers, whether at a central office or new/existing cell site or enterprise location can deliver high density aggregation, high bandwidth, low latency front/mid/backhaul and ethernet business service connectivity, and critical network timing in a comprehensive solution. The combined solution allows service providers to capitalize on the benefits of XR-powered point-to-multi-point applications including the ability to improve switching efficiencies at centralized sites, reduce power consumption and carbon footprint, and reduce the number of aggregation sites and truck rolls.”

“Infinera is excited to partner with DZS on this innovative solution to address rapidly growing mobile xHaul applications,” said Ron Johnson, SVP and General Manager of Optical Subsystems and Global Engineering, Infinera. “The combined solution, leveraging Infinera’s leadership in open optical networking with DZS’ leadership in Layer 2 switching, provides an efficient and scalable networking solution enabling network operators to effectively meet the needs of their customers.”

The DZS Saber 2200 will operate as a leaf node leveraging Infinera’s ICE-X’s ability to support point-to-point or point-to-multi-point applications. The integrated solution enables service providers to cost-efficiently deliver 25GE, 50GE, 75GE, 100GE and 200GE enterprise-class services over current Passive Optical Networking (PON) infrastructure. The ability to transmit bi-directional high-speed services over a single fiber will also enable network operators to rapidly and cost-effectively expand their networks for 5G and beyond.
