Infinera and Pacific Crossing, a wholly owned subsidiary of NTT Communications and operator of the transpacific submarine cable system PC-1, have successfully completed a 100 Gbps subsea trial. The trial spanned more than 9,500 kilometers on Pacific Crossing’s PC-1 fiber from California to Japan.

The transmission of a 100 GbE client service carried across the Pacific used 40 Gbps optical channels with Infinera’s FlexCoherent transmission based on Infinera’s commercially available 40 Gbps optical line module and 100 GbE client interface on its DTN platform. The second demonstration realized a 100 Gbps optical channel using binary phase shift keying (BPSK) with soft decision forward error correction (SD FEC) that will be available in the future on Infinera’s DTN-X platform.
