Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

(a) and (b). On October 14, 2010, Infinera Corporation (the “Company”) received written notification from Jagdeep Singh that he is resigning from his position as Executive Chairman and member of the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of the Company effective immediately to devote his time and energies to the pursuit of his next ventures. The Company does not believe that Mr. Singh’s resignation was caused by any disagreement with the Company on any matter relating to the Company’s operations, policies or practices.

Mr. Singh previously had indicated that he would remain on the Board until the transition to the new chief executive officer (“CEO”), Tom Fallon, was completed. Mr. Singh believes that this transition now has been completed and that it is an opportune time for him to transition from the Company. The Company is grateful to Mr. Singh for his service as a founder, CEO and Board member since the inception of the Company.



Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
