“On behalf of the Lightwave Innovation Reviews, I would like to congratulate Legrand on their high-scoring honoree status,” said Lightwave Associate Publisher and Editorial Director, Stephen Hardy. “This competitive program allows Lightwave to celebrate and recognize the most innovative products impacting the optical communications community this year.”

Data centers need to meet the growing demands to process more information, save energy, and reduce costs. Exacerbating these demands is the pressure to decrease data processing delays, increase distance, bandwidth or add interconnects between powerful servers and larger, more complicated switches. Infinium Quantum delivers a dramatic improvement of optical headroom between the equipment, enabling the option to address all of these modern demands. The Infinium Quantum end-to-end fiber system meets these challenges with the lowest total channel link loss at 0.75dB—a recorded 67% improvement over standard systems and a 55% improvement over any ultra-low-loss optical fiber system available on the market.

“We developed Infinium Quantum, the first Quantum-low loss fiber solution on the market, by leveraging customer feedback to redefine fiber performance in the data center—with a total channel connection loss that is an order of magnitude better than any other fiber system on the market today,” said Randolph Harris, Senior Product Manager, Legrand. “We are proud that Lightwave has validated our fiber solution’s sustainability and innovative features that simplify the process of installing fiber optics and boosting performance in mission-critical facilities.”
