Nokia recently announced it has broken new ground with Vodafone Turkey with a regional demonstration of consistent 1TB / s (terabits per second) transmission per channel over its over-the-air optical network.
The companies have demonstrated a capacity increase of 150% over single-channel coherent transmission and the ability to expand network capacity up to 70 Tbps per fiber. This capacity step is part of an ongoing modernization effort with Nokia to perpetuate the optical architecture of Vodafone Turkey.
Increasing the speed of its optical network is essential to deliver maximum capacity to the ever increasing data demands of Vodafone Turkey customers. This optical test builds on an earlier test by Nokia and Vodafone Turkey that validated a 1 Tb / s clear channel IP router interface, further preparing the operator’s network for the future.
Optical test showed a capacity of 1TB / s over 130GHz bandwidth without any error on Vodafone Turkey’s live optical network between its data centers. The test was conducted on the operator’s in-service optical network, based on Nokia’s advanced wavelength routing technology, which includes its high-performance, non-blocking CDC-F ROADM optical switch architecture.
Supporting operation on C + L bands, Nokia’s optical line system also doubles the total fiber capacity of Vodafone Turkey’s network. Nokia’s Photonic Service Engine (PSE) technology has also been used, providing maximum performance and spectral efficiency. Nokia PSE Coherent Optics is deployed in Vodafone Turkey’s network using the 1830 PSI-M (Photonic Service Interconnect-Modular) compact modular optical network platform, optimized for center interconnection applications. data on metropolitan, regional and long distance distances.
