    On 15 January 2017, Infinera announced a revamp of its subsea portfolio and completed a trifecta of announcements based on its 4th generation “Infinite Capacity Engine” integrated photonics technology. Infinera has now effectively launched its portfolio roadmap for the next 12+ months, with new products and upgrades to existing platforms identified across each of the main optical application areas including data center interconnect (DCI), metro, long haul, and subsea. Delivery of these new products and enhancements in a timely manner will be critical to retaining a competitive portfolio in the DCI and long haul markets, stepping up efforts in the metro market, and regaining a foothold in the subsea market.

    Over the past 2 years, I’ve been talking to operators and vendors about how they’re going to buy, consume, and sell software and hardware going forward. I usually get only general answers from vendors, and I reported some of these options for vRouter software in a series of client notes in 2014-2015. But to be fair, consumption models are certainly in a state of flux or, better said, are developing along a number of tracks, each to serve a different purpose or satisfy a service provider need.
