Infinera was founded on the idea of bringing the benefits of digital networking to consumers worldwide. Being a company of many firsts, Infinera’s Digital Optical Network is the first switched WDM (wavelength-division multiplexing) system. WDM is a technology that splices a number of optical carrier signals using different wavelengths from a single source. Through a single strand of fiber, signals are multiplied and channeled, largely reducing the need for cable management.
