Infinera claims to have changed the world of optical telecommunications with its “Digital Optical Networking”, a new approach enabled by photonic integration.
Infinera is a vertically integrated company. It has its own fab in Allentown and designs and manufactures the chip to the system in house.
The company claims to be number 1 in market share for backbone DWDM in North America.
Infinera was founded in 2000 as Zepton Networks, and raised its first round of funding in April 2001. The startup remained in stealth mode until its first products were launched in 2004, although a few early media articles did describe the company's component technology - a photonic integrated circuit in indium phosphide.
Infinera went public in 2007, raising $182 million.
