Improving network performance; reducing CAPEX and OPEX

MultiLane, Inc, has independently verified that Legrand's Infinium Quantum Fiber System increases network performance—beyond IEEE’s industry-standard fiber connectivity loss—to provide greater network efficiency. In addition, Infinium Quantum was shown to achieve significant Bit Error Rate (BER) improvement with a notable reduction of Forward Error Correction (FEC) codewords. For more test information, please access MultiLane’s report, “The Quantum Effect.”

“For many years, the conventional wisdom held that any performance level at or beneath the IEEE standard was deemed to be good enough,” said Gene Smith, Director of Product Management and Marketing, Legrand. “However, when it comes to today’s complex electronics and more advanced modulation schemes, ‘good enough’ will not do. Thanks to MultiLane’s foresight to conduct this test we now have the verified data that clearly shows Infinium Quantum’s dramatic effects of optimizing optical headroom to increase the overall network performance.”

MultiLane has been helping transceiver vendors optimize their products and pass standard specifications for nearly a decade. In a real-world production environment, the Infinium Quantum fiber system was tested via the MultiLane ML4054B 400G transceiver test platform. The results verified that Legrand’s solution, when compared to standard fiber, realized a 3.6x BER improvement, 1.04dB total link loss reduction, and a 1.77x decrease in FEC Corrections.

“As system integrators continue to navigate the challenge of scaling network capacity and balancing cost, fiber selection can just as easily be an inhibitor or enabler,” said Kees Propstra, VP Marketing, MultiLane. The Infinium Quantum system has proven to unlock more optical headroom while future-proofing fiber investments.”

Additionally, the 2021 Lightwave Innovation Reviews panel has given the Infinium Quantum Fiber System a rating of 4.5 out of 5. The high rating comes with a product distinction of being not only a “superb” offering but also one that “provides groundbreaking and new technical milestones,” according to the rating system.
