Photonic Service Engine 3 (PSE-3)

The shape of things to come

Meet surging video, cloud and 5G traffic demands by using our super coherent Photonic Service Engine 3 (PSE-3) chipset to maximize the capacity and performance of every link in your optical network.

The PSE-3 implements probabilistic constellation shaping (PCS) to maximize capacity over any distance and on any fiber — from metro to subsea. A concept pioneered by Nokia Bell Labs, PCS pushes optical performance up against the Shannon limit, the maximum possible information transfer rate.

PSE-3 is ideal for service providers and webscale companies looking to push the limits of their optical networks and increase the returns on their fiber investments.

How PSE-3 reshapes optical networks

First implementation of PCS

Provides the first implementation of Probabilistic constellation shaping (PCS), pushing fiber-optic performance close to theoretical limits at any distance — from 10 km to 10,000 km and beyond

Increased capacity

Up to 65 percent over commonly deployed networks while reducing power usage per bit by 60 percent

Automatic optimization

Automatically optimizes network capacity and reach with a new level of granularity efficiency

Improve performance

PSE improves optical wavelength performance by up to 25 percent compared to today's most advanced systems

Reduce operational complexity

Drives down operational complexity with simplified spectrum planning and automatic wavelength optimization
