Nokia and Vodafone Turkey claim to have achieved a record coherent transmission capacity of 1TB / s (terabits per second) per channel on the operator’s over-the-air optical network, proving that the capacity carried over a single channel of the over-the-air optical network can be improved by 150%, and the capacity per fiber can be increased up to 70TB / s.
The trial featured a capacity of 1TB / s over 130 GHz bandwidth without any errors over the operator’s live optical network between its data centers. This milestone is part of the ongoing modernization effort of Vodafone Turkey with Nokia to perpetuate its optical architecture.
“We are delighted to complete our deployment of advanced optical transport solutions with the successful and on-time completion of this crucial trial to modernize Vodafone Turkey’s optical network. Together, we are accelerating their digital transformation with solutions that can be easily scaled to meet 5G demands, “said James Watt, Head of Optical Networks, Nokia.
The demonstration builds on a previous trial by the duo who validated a 1TB / s clear channel IP router interface, further preparing Vodafone’s network for the future. 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, the Finnish supplier said in a press release Thursday. .
The trial also used Nokia’s Photonic Service Engine (PSE) technology which provides maximum performance and spectral efficiency. Nokia PSE coherent optics are deployed in Vodafone Turkey’s network using the 1830 PSI-M (Photonic Service Interconnect-Modular) compact modular optical network platform.
Together with @VodafoneTR we innovated with a demo of a coherent transmission of 1 TB / s per channel on live sound #optical network and speed up their # digitaltransformation with solutions that can be easily scaled to meet # 5G requests. https://t.co/3JiV7rIgde pic.twitter.com/22J81auQd2
