ADVA Optical Networking announced today that it is playing a key role in the Convergence of Fixed and Mobile Broadband Access/Aggregation Networks (COMBO) project. The initiative, funded by the European Commission, is developing pioneering technology vital to the success of 5G. 16 partner organizations, including operators, equipment suppliers and research centers, are collaborating on COMBO to create new approaches that will enable full architectural convergence of fixed and mobile networks.
Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. and the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute HHI today announced the development of a new method to simultaneously convert the wavelengths of wavelength-division-multiplexed signals necessary for optical communication relay nodes in future wavelength-division-multiplexed optical networks, and have successfully tested the method using high-bandwidth signal transmission in the range of 1 Tbps.
Viavi Solutions announced last weel several initiatives to advance 100G, 400G and other high-speed optical network technologies at ECOC 2016. Network operators worldwide are facing unexpected demand for bandwidth and new services, and are responding by accelerating deployment of high-speed optical technologies from access to the core. Many of these technologies, especially 400G, are still nascent and require industry collaboration to become standardized.
Infinera, a provider of Intelligent Transport Networks, and Lumentum Holdings Inc. (Lumentum), a provider of innovative photonic products for cloud and networking applications, have successfully validated Infinera's portfolio of dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) platforms over Lumentum's white box optical line system.
Aqua Comms Limited, a provider of scalable, subsea capacity-based network solutions, and CenturyLink, Inc. announced today that CenturyLink has activated two 100 Gigabit waves of high capacity connectivity between New York and London on Aqua Comms’ America-Europe Connect (AEConnect) subsea cable system.
ADVA Optical Networking announced today that KOSC Telecom, France's newest telecommunications service provider, has selected the ADVA FSP 3000 for its nationwide DWDM transport network. The new operator is leveraging ADVA Optical Networking's metro and long-haul technology to provide 100Gbit/s wholesale connectivity to service providers. With metro capabilities in major French cities, such as Paris and Marseille, to mid-sized cities, including Annecy and La Rochelle, the new national network stretches across 20,000km.
Ekinops, a leading supplier of next-generation optical network equipment, is introducing a new flexible rate transponder/muxponder line which allows network operators to quickly and easily double their transport capacity.
Using an advanced digital signal processor (DSP) combined with Ekinops’ enhanced T-Chip (Transport-on-a-Chip) technology to support both DP-QPSK and 16QAM modulation formats on a single line card, Ekinops is able to deliver a low-cost, programmable 400G solution.
INOC, a 24×7 Network Operations Center (NOC) and global provider of technology infrastructure monitoring, reporting and support services, announces it is launching a new Network Operations Center dedicated to supporting optical network infrastructure. This dedicated NOC is designed to respond to the growing demand from enterprises and Communications Service Providers (CSPs) that need to satisfy complex and evolving requirements.
Sunnyvale, CA and Stockholm, Sweden
Infinera, provider of Intelligent Transport Networks, announced the introduction of the Infinite Capacity Engine, a multi-terabit optical subsystem enabling a step function in optical wave division multiplexing (WDM) performance. The Infinite Capacity Engine is the first optical subsystem in the industry to offer network operators the combined benefits of delivering optical super-channel capacity up to 2.4 terabits per second (Tb/s) and reach up to 12,000 kilometers in a single small package.
