We have some much-needed good news. Infinera have announced their
successful completion of a live network test. The test saw a wave transmission
of up to 800 gigabits per second (800G) Single-wavelength transmission at 96 GBd
(gigabauds) over 950 (km). The network was across a major long-haul link in
North America. The trial was powered by the company’s 6G dual-800G Infinite
Capacity Engine (ICE) technology. This is an amazing achievement that signals a
